BMW 3 Series LCI configurator live on the BMW USA website

BMW’s G20 generation 3-Series recently underwent LCI surgery, getting new headlights, a new front bumper and new interior elements. While some of the character of the pre-LCI 3 Series is gone, the new LCI car looks cleaner and a bit sportier. If you are interested in purchasing a Series 3 LCI, or if you are a current Series 3 owner and want to know what your new exchange will look like, you can view the online configurator at from BMW USA.

Every new 3 Series model is available to rely on the configurator: the 330i, 330e and M340i. All are available in rear-wheel drive or xDrive all-wheel drive. For the sake of variety, I decided to build myself a rear-drive BMW 330e. The 330e isn’t getting as much love as it should, but it’s one of the best 3-Series models of any type you can get.

Unfortunately, I don’t like any of the Series 3 color options. I chose Phytonic Blue, which is a nice color, but it’s a bit worn and I’m tired of it. However, I didn’t think Melbourne Red looked any better and Portimao Blue required the M Sport package which surprisingly I don’t like as much. These are the wheels, I don’t like the wheel options that come with the M Sport package. I prefer the standard wheel option, as I actually think it looks a bit sportier. Weird, I know.

For the interior, I chose Mocha, which is kind of a brown and black two-tone that looks fantastic. It also works great with Phytonic Blue paint. This newly revamped interior comes with BMW’s new iDrive 8, which adds quite a few new technologies to the cabin and makes it more modern. When it comes to tech options, the only real new thing is the 5G connectivity option, which is pretty unique in the 3 Series segment and pretty cool.

I think the new 3 Series is still the best looking BMW on sale, overall, because its design is still very BMW. It avoided obnoxious grilles, funky headlights, oversized wheels and odd lines. It’s still a great looking 3 Series and now with the LCI it looks even sportier and more modern. So if you’re interested in one, check out the builder online.
