New M40d arrived today and off for GTECHNIQ Ultra... Soon time to say goodbye to my Sophisto Grey X4 30D Msport after 5 1/2 yrs faithful service.

Extra's include
- Panoramic Roof
- Msport + with M seats in Cognac
- 718M Wheels

might change to PS4 tyres as I did previously but will see how well adaptive suspension performs.

Looks beautiful! As a Yank, I'm always jealous of you Europeans who can buy an X3/4 M40d. Such a cool car!

Looks great.

I have the p Zero run flats with adaptive suspension. Surprisingly, they have felt ok.

Congrats!!! Beautiful car! X4 owners are in minority here, and those who went for GTECHNIQ Ultra are even more rare, so let's stick together

No M40d in Canada! I wouldnt mind diesel with premium fuel here at $1.50 per liter here. The B58 piston is pretty sweet tho...

I went to see the car for the first time today and I'm absolutely delighted. I think pictures don't do it justice. The Cerium parts work so well with the silver and I'm glad I kept them. The M Seats are only available in Black or Cognac and i love the combination of Silver and Cognac.

As it turns out there are Bridgestone Tyres instead of Pirelli's so will be interesting to see how they perform.

thanks to all for the comments

Edit: The colour of the seats in reality is so different to the pictures. They are more orange/Tan.

I hear you!

I love the Cerium/Silver combination, even though I had to spec my car with black grilles, boomerangs etc.
