M340i in Belgium

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello All,

I received my new M340i on 22/08 and i have done 500 km.
It's an awesome car and coming from a F36 435d.
I really love the car and i drives great.
The power at low rpm is impressive and the ride quality is very good.
For the moment i don't drive the car fast because i want to break in properly.
On cold start or warm start in sport + i hear the exhaust very good.
When reving in neutral i hear pops and burbles, but when i'm driving i don't hear them.
Is it possible that the exhaust needs to break in?
Maybe it's because i drive the car slow and not exceeding 3500 rpm?
I know that we have OPF's in EU, but i drove the Z4 M40i (EU spec) and there where a lot of burbles en pops. I thought that the M340i would be the same, but not for the moment...

The color is davit grey and loving it!

Sweet ride, congrats!
I would assume you'll hear more pops and burbles once you pull above 3.5k... after break-in

The interior is oyster :-)

I ordered my car on 24/05 when the BMW system was updated and i took delivery on 22/08.

My car doesn't have the M technology packet.
At that moment, it was not available in the configurator.
The brakes are the same in Belgium, there aren't 2 sizes of brakes like in the us. We only have the small brakes (i think it's 348*36).
M technology packet in Belgium is only the extra cooler.

We have the m performance brakes that are available but that's the same for everybody i think. I dont know if i will buy them....
Has anyone had them installed?

Very nice and great combination... the more I see this color the more I think I should have chosen it over BSM

I would say that these calipers and rotors are bigger than yours...

Where did the dealer installed the mandatory fire extinguisher on your M340i? Mine was just put in the storage area in the trunk...

Can you share a picture? Iíve asked the dealer to mount it under the passengerseat, but it would cost 250Ä (German fire extinguisher version) so Iím looking for a cheap option ;-).

Awesome looking car, best colour too!

Do you have a video of the exhaust? I'm awaiting delivery of my M340i and I've not heard an EU Spec one with the OPF filters and I'm concerned about the lack of noise.

Does sound great but is muffled by those OPFs. There will be OPF-back exhausts for sale before long!
