Post Your New 2016 340i

Haven't seen one of these created and not quite sure if it's a thing around here, but I just ordered my 340i xDrive and figured the only way to combat the eight week wait would be to check out as many 340's as I can and build up the hype!

If you'd like to participate and share your new car, please share some pictures (videos are awesome too), your build order/specs, and maybe a few thoughts or a quick review (of course if you've already created a review, go ahead and share the link).

Here is what I expect to receive:

2016 340i xDrive (US)
- Black Sapphire Metallic
- 18" 398 Orbit Grey Non-Run Flat tires

- Saddle Brown Dakota Leather with Dark Brown highlight
- Ash Grain Wood Trim

- M Sport Package
- Track Handling Package
- Lighting Package
- Driver Assistance Package
- Side and Top View Cameras (Option)

- Navigation System (Option)
- Heated Front Seats (Option)
- Parking Assistant (Option)
- Black Kidney Grilles (Dealer Option)

*Pictures coming soon! ( not soon enough )

Just a few thoughts:
First, I was a bit nervous about the color and tire combo as I have yet to see the orbit grey wheels in person. Luckily I have seen some pictures on here and they look fantastic on the silver bodies. I have not seen them on a build like mine, hopefully they compliment the sapphire black nicely.

Second, the navigation. Not a fan of paying $2k for a nav system, when I rely on Google maps on my iPhone, but the bigger screen and added instrument cluster on the dash are a nice feature and I'm sure I'd be missing out on some other minor features without the nav.

Lastly, haven't heard anything about the Harmon Kardon Sound System yet. I'm assuming it's comparable to the HK system in the Mercedes E-class which sounds great.

I will be ordering mine soon, when December incentives/numbers come around.

I am also disappointed as you are about the Tech Package being the only way to get both the Screen and Extended Ins. Cluster upgrades....

I went the other way I am not going to justify the cost of a Nav I will never use as I use Waze exclusively for the notifications. I would never use the Navi.


If only I could pay a la carte for the screen and instrument cluster standalone ;\

my signature

should show one pic of my 340; it is Black Sapphire with the track package and the 18" 398 OG and the summer non-RF tires. Looks and performs just great. I've swapped out for winter tire and wheels already, but have plenty of pics of the car as I got it off the lot 6 weeks ago I can upload soon.
Enjoy the wait and then the car. I am supremely happy so far.

I have a question, since BMW is now equipping cars with go flats do they include a spare tire now in the trunk? I saw a video from a BMW dealer in CA on you tube of a 2016 328i m sport with these 18" 398 Orbit Grey Non-Run Flat tires and when he opened the trunk he lifted the tray and underneath he said and there are your gel packs since these are non run flats, what are gel packs?

I really like those 398 Orbit Grey wheels.

no spare but you get a mobility kit which is an electric pump and a can of sealant that help sealing the hole from inside the tire.

That's the California term for the Mobility Kit hollandog mentioned, which consists of a canister of sealant (that's the "gel") and a portable air compressor/pump.

Great pics, BMW did a great job on the headlight design. I was surprised BMW changed from xenon to led. I special ordered my 2011 335i with adaptive xenon's and it's the best lighting at night I've ever owned on a vehicle and was wondering how the LEDs would compare to mine.

I wish BMW offered Mediterranean Blue on the msport package. I'll be ordering mine soon for ED in April and can't decide on Mineral Gray on Saddle or Estoril Blue on Saddle

I noticed that too missed opportunity because that is a great color blue and would look great with m sport pkg. I actually built it with the oyster leather and the contrast was striking but no m sport what were they thinking??

Picked her up tonight!

340i xDrive
Msport
Estoril / Saddle / Anthracite / Black Kidney grills
Adaptive M
400M wheels with mixed summers
413 wheels with winter tires (already owned)
Cold weather
Lighting
Driver's assistance
Technology
Enhanced bluetooth


Color combo is fantastic. Best I've ever had. Black kidney grills look terrific with msport. Didn't drive it much yet so hard to give impressions although even without pushing it at all engine is clearly more powerful than n55 and there is zero lag in sport mode. Here are some crappy pics when I picked it up. First time I had a dealer "present" the car to me. Wish I had nicer winter wheels but already owned these.

Waiting for 340 M sports package EB with black interior/oyster highlight and blue trim. 19" 403M wheels, premium package enhanced(Canada). It has arrived at port now enroute to dealership. Picking up January.

It's little hard to capture accurate pictures in my garage at night with suboptimal lighting. Here is the best I can do.
