Delivery of my Twilight Purple M340i!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So after driving my F80 Jahre M3 the last 3 years in NYC, and my lease ending in December, I decided to order an m340 instead but wanted it to be special. At first wanted tanzanite blue, because that's what I wanted my M3 to be before I was offered a deal I couldn't resist on the Jahre, and then I realized an individual color was only an additional $2500 more than Tanzanite on the M340i.

I had seen an M4 on the forum in twilight purple and fell in love with it, I wound up placing my order in mid October, and just took delivery today.

Here's a few pics my lease broker who's a good friend of mine took today when it was dropped off.

A few more exterior mods to come when I get to drop off the car at oneighty, and I'll update my original post with it.

The color is absolutely stunning and beautiful in person and it pops in the sunlight perfectly. The front of the car with the color looks super aggressive and I love the way the color looks at all angles..very excited to be part of the G20 community.

How did you manage that on a US car? If they did Individual Paint, can they do the interior?

I wish they offered higher grade leather on more models.

Thanks everybody for the feedback so far, it's not done just yet so don't worry!

Once I saw the ability to build on the individual site, I immediately asked my good friend that owns this leasing company to speak to their BMW connect about ordering an individual color. And once I was told we could do it, and then BMWNA approved it; I was able to order the exterior color.

I really did want the interior as well, but was told it's not offered, at least not yet, on US cars.

Thank you! I actually have all my parts waiting to be installed, and some other little things I got for the exterior; that'll all be installed next week and I'll post updated pics.

Congratulations. Car looks great.

Whats a lease broker (over all I get the concept) and any particular reason why you decided to involve them? Unless of course you are not familiar with leasing and negotiation part but doesn't sound like it from your signature.

Regardless, congratulations once again.

So basically they are the middle men between the customer and dealers, and deal in more of a wholesale business. They're pretty much everywhere here in the tri-state because there's so much volume of cars being moved here locally..but in my experience many of the brokers get you deals that the dealers cannot match or beat.

And yes this is my 4th leased BMW, i only got my E92 directly from the dealer.

Thank you! And yes I live in Sheepshead actually, and the XS leasing owner is a good friend of mine as well as Alex @ oneighty.

I'm actually getting some coding done today.. do you know anything about the anti-dazzle coding for the laser lights?
