I don't like the wheels, not to mention that cleaning them will be a pain! Reminds me of a bicycle wheel.

I have this lip on my M340 in gloss black and it looks incredible.

Front lips are always a win on these cars

So would an iS badge be slotted under an M Performance model?

Yes sir they added a few painted trim pieces...called it "Limited" and probably presold them all.

Its a marketing play to presell a ton of these.

I can only imagine the debates in SA about this car living up to the iS name and if it's diluting the iS badge or not.
I'm thinking they spent more time discussing meeting sales goals and what they had in their toolbox to help them do it.

Yes, we have the G20 M340i.

Regarding 330is specs, the BMW Genius at the M Festival said "only the colour-coded M Performance kit and an M Performance Exhaust"

I think its to do with aerodynamics and overall stiffness. I could however not be correct. To all Peoplekind. (Stop Trudeau)

I kinda wish BMW made this version as well, 320is:

That was not a good looking car at all. The LCI was a big hit. Very good looking car.

I think that looks fantastic, and furthers my thoughts that to stand any chance of looking decent, the G80 M3 needs a crisp silver in its launch colours!

Production is limited to 300 units only.

The team at the show had no further information, it will be launched as a 2020 MY Car.

It is in all likelihood a nod to the cult status E30 325is which was SA specific as we didnt get the M3.

I had posted some Images on Instagram (@bmw_mpower_fans).

We also got a first look at the M8 GC in the Flesh.
That car looks so good I don't care about the HP.

They nailed it!!!!

Agree, LCI E90s were the best looking for this generation.
320is only came with pre-lci version.

Reminds of those cheap EBay wheels that are $324.99 for 4. LOL

Looks superb for a G20. Nice to finally see one of the newer BMWs in a classy silver color. The black grille looks sharp against this color too. Don't get all the wheel comments. This wheel suits the G20 better than it does the M2 Competition, which shares a similar wheel design. Overall, the car has a very sporty yet elegant look to it. I like it a lot.

I'll be honest: this looks great. Not too overdone, classy, yet sporty.
