US M340i Configurator Images

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
EDIT: the images appear to be back up with some intermittent 404s.

Hi all,

Call me obsessive but I figured out how to reverse engineer the M340i configurator images from the following page. https://www.bmwusa.com/vehicles/3-se.../overview.html. My M340i is waiting at port so something to do in the meantime

When you click on the "performance" tab to get to the M340i, it uses javascript to load in the following image:

https://cache.bmwusa.com/cosy.arox?p...ARENT&angle=40

You can modify the query parameters in this URL using the M340i order guide to configure the car that you like:

Vehicle (ex. 203Q): model number from order guide. 203Q is the model number for the M340xi.

Paint (ex. P0C31): paint option code from the order guide, prepended with "P0". Change the last 3 characters to the paint code you want. C31 is the code for Portimao blue so I changed it to "P0C31"

sa (ex. S01PD): A comma delimited list of all option codes, each prepended with "S0". Notice the "S01PD" option, which is the 18 inch wheels option code 1PD. 1PL is the code for one of the 19 inch wheel options. Change this value to S01PL and you get the 19 inch wheels.

Another example: add S05AZ, which is laser lights (5AZ) and see that the headlight style changes. I'm not sure how it behaves when options conflict, so I just removed all options except for the two I listed here (https://cache.bmwusa.com/cosy.arox?p...ARENT&angle=45

I haven't experimented too much further options wise.

quality, width, sharpness: Not sure what the maxes are here, but setting them each to 9999 results in a larger, higher quality image.

angle (ex. 40) Angle view of configurator photo. Can specify value from 0 to 360.

Anyway, enjoy

Nice work!

Check out this page:
https://www.bmw.de/de/neufahrzeuge/3...entdecken.html

There is something like a "mini configurator" in the bottom part of the page where you can toggle through the lines (sport, m-sport, ...) and where also the m340i is included. You can then select colors, wheels, ...

They just need to put the configurator online. You can order one so silly that you can't use configurator.

Same with X3/4M ... get the config online

The configurator for the M340i on the Canadian website is now live.
All colors and configurations seem to be working as well.
https://www.bmw.ca/en/ssl/configurat.../config/PAINT/

My favorite new feature is the night mode with rotation.

I'm asking because when I change the color code to C35 or any other for that matter, I get image not available

Thank you very much!

So basically the cost of the new 340i is not almost 10 000 $ more expense that an E90 335i 10 years ago

If compare full equipped E90 335i and full equipped G20 340i we still have 10 000 $ difference...sorry! It almost the cost of my F82...Different times different options available, but still a huge cost increase...BMW is moving the 3 series to the 5 series cost and so on...3 series market is replaced by 1 and 2 series...

Not really.

If you factor inflation, a 2006 330 fairly well equipped was $44k in 2016. In 2019 dollars that’s roughly $56k. A 2019 RWD M340 which comes with more items as standard than the fully equipped 2006 is $54k. So the latest model is about the same price as the e90 was.
