Here in Europe it's not just for the M340i, and one of the pics I've seen of the G20 in Dravit grey was a 320d M-sport.

GReat color options and I'd be all over that Sunset Orange if I could get a manual.

Thankfully the SO can be found on a 2 series

Exactly, as was Valencia Orange before it, and the superfluous MSport package is not needed once one has the THP and MPerformance kidneys and spoiler, to replace the tiny original MSport one. For our replacement for the current 330Xi, (waiting to see 4 GC), Sunset Orange is a foregone conclusion.

What does the asterisk denote for Sunset Orange? Portimao or Sunset for me.

I'am with you. I fell in love with the Sakhir M6 when it was launched, and also the Sakhir M3 made me sing, but a 116i sunset, just is not a right match for me.

M340 colors have not been released, considering there are not multiple body style versions of the M340 I could them possibly offering more colors. But the m550 does not offer extra colors. So it likely not different.

Ahhhh, I mistook MSport Pkg for the M340i colors being offered. Barcelona Blue please. M850i looks great in that color. Would love the M340i to get it.

Orange is a favoured young, urban colour here (various European countries), often seen on 116s, 118s and other warm hatchbacks. I think the buyer population is quite skewed towards female. Aggressive urban men favour black and primer-type flat greys. It's funny to think of orange as an aggressive colour, just can't see it.

Portimao blue and Med blue! Always a winner but that blue ridge mountain may be a winner!

Hi Jay, What about individual colors? Will Citrin Black metallic or Tanzanite Blue be available for the M340i as individual color options? I thought I read earlier that these would be available.

Delete Glacier Silver on M Sport? It's a loss.

Add Mineral White on M Sport? It's a gain.

I wouldn't be surprised if they're available again for $1950 MSRP. Would look great!

I guess I can understand the comment re: SO suiting more aggressive looking cars. For eg I found the m2 in SO to look awesome and really suit the character of the cars design, whereas was quite underwhelmed with HS. Conversely, I wouldn't order SO in a more luxury styled car, but would find something like HS a much better fit.

All subjective though!

Thank you. Considering either color. That is if I decide to get the M340i when the lease is up in 30 months on the Msport 340i

I had a conversation with BMW brass in 2017 about 6-speeds and how it should be maintained. I guess cost cutting overcame brand heritage for the G20. Let's hope they introduce one mid-cycle or sooner if we complain enough #saveManny

Chances are they will put a similar Blue in the individual color palette. Charging extra for it. They do this just because they can and, they know we will pay for it
