Congratulations

And what timing. Yesterday I drove my cousin's Dravit Grey 340i in Bombay and she's a bloody rocket. Got me high on adrenaline.

The colour looks so good in the flesh. Pictures don't do justice

Congrats Deepu! It's been a long time

Does this replace the Optra or did you have something else in between.

@vid6639: Thanks a lot . Indeed it's been a long time. Had a Jetta before this. Replaced Optra around 2014 . This replaces the Jetta.

@abhinavsureka: Thanks for your wishes

Thanks to my good friend BHPian robimahanta (aka Robi), I got this opportunity today.
Great pics Dr. such a drool worthy car

@Robi, is that the standard Spoiler or you opted for an extra one? I opted for the Racers pack which came with spoiler that looks quite smaller

Hi! I got the carbon fibre spoiler. It is an optional extra. I believe it is a wee bit bigger than the matte black one.

Hey and I got mine delivered on 17th Aug in Gravit Grey. Sharing couple of pics. So if you see this car in Bengaluru, that's me - happy to join the Bengaluru M340i club.

Thanks to Karan, Androdev, Dieselite for the tips - I opted for six years warranty and skipped BSI.

So far, in love with the car. Couple of pics.

Qn : what RPM are you guys keeping in during breaking-in period - 4500 I guess?

Happy to share this with everyone. I picked mine on 20th Aug with 2+2 Extended Warranty as suggested. Thank you everyone for their excellent feedback that led me to purchase this monster of the car. Every corner, every throttle input had me grinning ear to ear.

Congratulations.

Yours is the first car I have seen with those optional wheels and M-sport grille.

The M340i is a sleeper, yours more so.

Thanks Shreyas. I opted for the racers pack that came with these black alloys, grill, carbon fibre wing mirrors and so on.

You are right, the matte black is a bit too small. May I know how much you paid for the carbon fibre spoiler. My dealer quoted 90K.

It was around 67k all inclusive (which itself is way too expensive) 90k is way too much.
But the quality is top notch and CFRP is always expensive.

And you got the all black grille from the factory? Or did you change it after delivery? Looks way better

Thanks Anand.

BMW is (still) having the Performance pack option with uptown 2Lakh discount for M340i. So I opted for Racers pack, which came with black grill, alloys and so on.
Attaching the options for reference.
