Austin Yellow and Yas Marina Blue are the launch colors for the F82 M4 and F80 M3, but the colors are still available through BMW Individual for other BMW models, as long as you’re willing to pay for it.
Here’s a look at how the two colors look on the F30 3 Series.
The first F30 3 Series facelift / LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) prototype has just been spotted!

Looking forward to hearing from feedback from all you 8AT guys running an MPPK or MPPK + ___ , as well as sharing my experiences as I continue to learn more about this car. Hopefully this will help the community decide on whether or not the M Performance Power kit is the right tuning solution for them!
My vehicle: 2014 F30 335i M Sport with Sport Auto (M Performance Power Kit and M Performance Exhaust). Given that it’s a MY14, it has launch control.
