New BMW 330i M Sport Rocks Sunset Orange Exterior With M Performance Upgrades

The all-new BMW 3-Series is just now beginning to find its way into customers’ driveways around the world, which means that fans of the nameplate and sports sedan aficionados should take notice every time they see one in public.

However, if your goal is to attract everyone’s attention, you might want to opt for a bold exterior color, and if you look at the new 3-Series’ pallet of regular hues, one could argue that Sunset Orange Metallic is the most conspicuous choice.

In the U.S. it costs an extra $550 if you’re adding it to a 2019 330i M Sport, such as the one you see here, on display at the automaker’s Abu Dhabi showroom. Other noteworthy features include the black kidney grille with M stripes, M Performance kit and the dual-tone 20-inch Y-spoke Ferric Grey and Matte Black wheels.

The big wheels and the body kit help give the 3er a more dynamic stance.

Moving on to the interior, it’s a full black leather spec with white contrast stitching and Aluminum Tetragon trim on the dashboard and center console.

As for the engine, it’s a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 258 PS (254 HP) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels, as this is not equipped with an xDrive system, and you can go from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds.

    worthy upgrade to my b8 a4

  • Jesus, this car looks so massive this generation.

  • Finally man, we get a good looking 3 series!!!

    Gorgeous color. I wasn’t a fan of the new G20, especially not a fan of the M Sport package frontend, but man does that front lip + splitters save the day. I’m actually not hating on this as much now, and that color! Mmmm

    Nice to see the 4 cyl get dual exhausts as well.

    Wow. This color is brilliant. No pun intended. The more I look at this new 3, the more I like it (w/ the exception of the bland rear end).

    But dang man. This thing looks mean.

  • KAG25

    The paint looks really good, the rear of the 3 is way to busy

  • Mr. EP9

    It’s that place again.

  • Nick Hebert

    It looks great in this color. Those blacked out braces help too since BMW feels their kidney grill needs to get ever larger with each generation.
