Amazing how whiny BMW buyers are over tires.

You can afford a bmw but not tires? If the tires were so awful you could have made a deal with the dealer to pull them off and swap them Prior to purchase just like people do with wheels. Sheesh
I missed the part where he said he couldn't afford them. It think his point was shittier tires were used on a more performance oriented vehicle which is valid complaint. Also, a lot of people do ED where you don't have the option of making a deal for a tire upgrade.
ED or otherwise , another option is to Take the OE tires off , put what you want on. Reinstall OE tires at the end of your lease

Congrats! Excellent color combo (much better than Portimao purp.. err blue), but that grille insert looks horrible. What the hell was BMW thinking with this one??? It needs vertical slats ASAP!

Congrats.

I like Tanz in full sunshine. Here in the UK, a lot of the time, a Tanz car can look too close to black or very dark blue, but when the sun is out it's a great colour.

Those front reflectors you have in the states suck and I don't like the grille, especially on the flagship model.

Nice car and color. Not so sold on the oyster I feel like the cognac interior would suite it much nicer. How's the driving dynamics?

lower the car by 1.5" at least

put spacers all around

tint the car at least 50%

https://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-ne...-ar182835.html

+20 liters of trunk space
+1Ē of rear legroom
-600 lbs curb weight
Almost identical HP and Torque vs. M5

Pretty wild, its basically a brand new e39 M5, with less weight and more tech.

Yea the new 3 is a big car, looks big too. I'm sure it's going to grow on me and I do like it but not loving it yet.

The E39M had a NA V8 btw - big difference.

Agreed 100%. BMW hasnít come close to that exhaust note in the recent past. However, if you want to drop 40k on one in good condition be my guest Itís pretty rad you can get a new BMW (M340i) today thatís so close in dimensions and character to that beastly M5.

Can't believe people are driving their M340i, while In Europe (including Germany) the M340i isn't even in the online configurator yet...

Yeah, I had a e39 540i. Before I ordered the G20 I compared the specs and was shocked how closely the current 3er dimensions match the old car.

But, for me, the size of my old 540 was about right so that closed the deal. And now itís lighter and has more HP
