Thanks for sharing!

Well, it's definitively not Portimao. It looks like Mediterranean.

Mediterranean Blue is gorgeous. I have seen it on a 5 Series, and it was really great.

I hope to see the M340i in Portimao Blue soon to compare.

You're probably right! Tanzanit II blue is one of the Individual colors for the G20.

Nevertheless, it’s similar to Meditteranean blue.

M340i @the 2019 Montreal Auto Show

Hey - I keep looking for any info related to the new M340, so hearing about the Montreal Auto Show, I searched YT and found this video (not perfect, but shows the car in Blue nicely)

I think this could actually be Portimao. It probably looks darker indoors.

Mediterranean Blue and Tanzanite blue are both darker than Portimao.
And Medi Blue is not available for the M340i. They would likely not bring an individual color (Tanzanite) as a demo vehicle. Portimao is their new launch color, they are running with it.

As noted in a few other threads, tanzanite 2 is looking like it's going to be a regular production color for the M340

This was posted by a forum member who always has insider info. I'm going to guess this is the standard M340i color choice list:

Black Sapphire
Sunset Orange
Dravit Grey
Alpine White
Mineral Grey
Mineral White

Interior colors same as 330i with M Sport.
Edit: Dravit Grey/Tanzanite Blue II look to be individual.

He was leaking details about the M340i even back in 2017 Like how it won't come out at the same time as the 330i. I trust him.

Those are some impressive numbers! Not really feeling the grill though. But I'm sure it'll sink in. Great video!

It's Not even close in real life. I have a Tanzanite Blue.

Source: I have a Tanzanite Blue car and have seen the Mediterranean Blue in real life several times.
