M340i xDrive - Oxide Grey II Individual on Fiona Red

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Picked it up a week ago. Today, with little else to do (for obvious reasons), I went for a drive and took some photos.

Not too many Oxide Grey cars on here, so I thought I'd share. This colour is one of the most difficult to capture on camera!

Coming from an F80 M3 Competition, there are lots to get used to. But as a daily driver, I already think this is a much better car.

Looks great! Did your dealership bring this in from Ontario? Back in November just before I picked up my custom order, my dealership offered me this exact spec as it was incoming but the person who ordered it had backed out.

I’ve never liked silver, just so many crap silver vehicles out there but I gotta say, this looks pretty damn good!

Very nice! That Fiona Red is an incredible combo with Oxide! Enjoy in good health! At least you can get your miles in!

Thanks! I'm not sure if it's the same car, but unlikely because my production date was 2019-11-17, so [incoming] would probably have been premature at that point. Just a popular colour combo I guess!

Nice! We're practically twins.

And yes, I feel like it's a different colour every time I look at it under different lighting!

Get it corrected and coated makes it pop even more. I did 5 layers on mine and did all interior too. Gotta keep that merino fresh.

Thanks for the kind words.

Here's another shot I took today to illustrate the drastic change in tone under different lighting.

Is that color available in the US? If so, how do you access that option on the configurator?

Oxide Grey II is an Individual colour, but here in Canada, it appears on the options list along with other Individual colours like Dravit grey, Tanzinite Blue, and Citrine Black (at an extra cost, of course). Same with the Fiona Red interior.

Beautiful color! Looks like champagne quartz in one of the pics and Donington in the other... both high on my list of favorite colors. Enjoy in good health!

Beautiful car! The grey and red really works well on these. I'd be interested to hear how this feels compared to your prior F80.
