My new M340i with new coating job

Hey guys! I'm a new proud owner of an M340i
- Black Sapphire body paint
- Blacked out grill, exhaust tips, wheels and mirror caps
- Fiona red interior

These shots were taken at my detailing shop right after a well deserved application of CarPro CQuartz Finest reserve. I live in Quebec, Canada so gotta protect that baby from the harsh winter condition.

Enjoy!

Black + red interior + black rims!! So sick Congrats! The red really adds the extra accent touch of hotness. Better than black on black on black.

Didn't opt for laser lights or Driver's assistance professional?

I am debating if its worth the money. You dont get the full benefits from it in the USA and it doesn't have the blue effect either. Also if damaged, its 3800.00to replace one head unit.

I'm not usually a fan of black trim or black in general but my goodness that is one beautiful machine.

Also, excellent choice with the interior/exterior colour combo. Love it!

My last bimmer was Jet Black, beautiful when clean but requires lots of upkeep. Still OP's car is stunning with that interior.

Looks nice 👍🏻

My last 2 BMWs had Sapphire Black. Always a winner but happy to change to tanzanite for my new one. Happy with my choice!

Great color from end to end and perfectly beautiful photos that express all the sexy nuances of the car!!
Thank you for posting and Congratulations!!
btw, Do those ICE ZERO 235 tyres put on the normal width alloy wheels? (i.e. F/R 8in/8.5in)

I ordered my touring last week from Japan and looking forward to the delivery in late Apr. Will boast mine when arrives. Pls check it out.

I really wanted them laser lights and the fancy 3d camera thingy but honestly, I agree it was not worth it... my only regrets so far is not forking the cash for that upgraded sound system... on the upside, I find myself turning the music way down so I can her the sweet sound of my B58 screaming on the highway!

Correct, they are all the same width and they fit the original rims. I'm a bit disappointed in the Ice Zero's performance on snow (or maybe x-drive is not that awesome), I've always been a Subaru+Nokian guy, the dealer strongly advised against using nokians which seemed odd... I should have listened to my guts!

Oh well, you live and you learn!

The worst part is that I had my name down on the waiting list for the M340i "First edition" which has a Frozen Dark grey matte paint which look absolutely STUNNING but there was a very long line (I mean new iPhone line kinda long) of people warning me against using a matte paint...

In the end I came by the dealership on Dec-30 and we made Christmas magic happen!

I nearly went with the frozen dark grey as well but was warned off it by the dealer.

While I see where you are coming from and maybe agree on the laser lights, missing out on the 3D camera system was a bad move IMO!
The camera system is so good and has saved me many times in negotiating tight places. Maybe Canada has wider roads, but here in Europe, especially older cities it is a nightmare.

Some of the best money I ever spent, I would actually debate on getting a car that did not have it.

Yes. In NA, the streets are wide enough. So are parking spaces. The opposite of Europe. You can live without the surround camera (My Audis have it and the only time I use it is when I park in my garage).
