Thanks for sharing. Even though the black grill looks nice, I am probably going to stick with the cerium grey grill and wheels.

I do like the shadowline trim but only on the black sapphire metallic. In regards to the rims I would go with the matte black over the silver/grey.

If we look closely seems the kidney grills are completely closed off?
Does the 340 normally come standard with active grills?

They are and also on the 330i. They open when the engine needs more air.

Weird...Looks like they don't open in the same manner as the 330.
From the pics I've seen, the 340 looks like a flat piece of plastic behind the the chromed design elements. Hard to visualize how it would open.

I think its just a show piece / prototype?

Is this Carbon Black? And I thought no red interior was offered on the G20? If both of these are available I am happily surprised!🤩

The paint without a doubt is Black Sapphire Metallic. Doesn't Carbon Black have a blue hint in the paint? Black Sapphire Metallic always look dark grey in the light.

Where did the red interior come from??? It's not on the configurator or is it only available on the 340? Also, the seat pattern is not the same as the standard seats - is this interior an Individual option?

I ordered my M340 last week and red interior was not an option...at least not here in Canada.

Red interior was officially announced already a while ago as an individual option

Unfortunately not all Individual interior and exterior options are currently available in North America (and maybe not elsewhere either yet - I'm not sure):

https://g20.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1557402

If I recall correctly, the Fiona Red option was added to the US option list for the X3 M40i sometime after it went on sale, so there is hope that it (and other interior/exterior choices shown in the above thread, but not yet offered) will eventually be offered for the M340i.

Is the trim a new M Performance option on this car ? It looks like carbon fiber and I don't see on the BMW configurator.

The carbon fiber is exclusively an M Performance part available on both the 330i and m340i. I've only seen it twice and this is one of them. You can't pick it in the configurator.

It is me, or the simplicity of the whole dash design resulted in an ugly old looking central console?
The red inserts should not interfere with the central console block, which also should flow as per previous BMW specific cockpit design like in the 8 Series.
That radio unit looks like an afterthought and is terrible.
I don not like it.

Love the wheels... in fact the car looks surprisingly good to me. Normally these mperformance show pieces look drastically overdone to me.

I did not get the option of Fiona Red when I ordered my 2019 X3 M40i back in Sept 2018 :
