So this M-performance grill is 1000% better in my opinion, and I don't see the stupid laser warning sticker anywhere. I truly hope that isn't a thing.

Switch on driver's door?

What is that switch on the driver's door down by the cupholder? Looks like the window and door controls (and maybe the seat memory?) is up by the handle... what's the one on the bottom?

And they're wrapped in PS4S rubber. About time BMW implements these tires.

I like the look, can't wait to test drive one when they arrive at dealers, wish BMW would show off some brighter interior options though, shame it no longer has coral red leather, guess the 4 series will get it since only even numbered bimmers are getting all the better colors.

Its the trunk release, BMW finally put it in a reachable place rather than the hard to reach under the steering wheel and to the left near the hood latch.

It would have been nice for them to show the new M340 with the M Performance exterior especially to see how this model will look with M performance exhaust since this car has the built in trapezoidal look like the new x3 gen and 5 series. Obviously, the 4 cylinder has round exhaust


Also, the M340 models will not have fog lights? I don't see them. And, can anyone confirm spare tire available finally?

That's bc the laser sticker is for NA-market only. Sorta like our ugly orange front reflectors

Actually the wheels aren't easy to clean if they are anything like the M40i/M50i wheels. Something about the matte finish makes it very difficult to wipe dust clean.

Front just looks a bit of a mess, back lools OK bar the exhaust pipes which should be what the 330i launch addition has.
Grille just doesn't work and the very top that goes into the bonnet makes it look cheap.

Hope it looks better in the flesh.

With the new active air flap aerodynamic/efficient grill slats...get ready for a $1000 M performance upgrade of just the grill.

Also, I was okay with it when it came out on the M2C, but the more I see it, the more I just cannot stand the moustache/connected grills. Please bring back the two distinct grills.

I wonder how bad those M-Sport brakes squealed as they rolled it onto the convention floor?

looks good, I like the grill, love the seats, happy with the interior updates. Hopefully the quality on all of it is high.

Edit: Looking at it again, I have nothing bad to say. I like the rear end, I think the grill is going to look masculine and sporty. The only thing I'm going to laugh about is the MSRP of $64k...or something like that. I'd consider trading my wife's 340i for that. But will want to see if they go AWD on the next M3.
