M3 2019 vs 2021


May 15, 2019
Took delivery of my LRM3 this week - had a RWD LR 2019. A few observations - The 21 fit and finish, paint and panel gaps were darn near perfect, could not find a single issue so far. Not quite so in the 19. This was part of the Q3 rush of deliveries, made just days earlier. Just feels more substantial, better quality, more premium than the 19. Might be in part that the cheap looking piano black console and chrome trim is gone, makes every color look better. After 200 miles the 2021 is charging close to 320 miles at 90%, which is almost the 353 claimed miles at 100%. I know that will decrease and adjust, but never got near the 325 advertised on the RWD and just nice to have that little extra range. Love the white seats, makes the whole inside of the car just pop. The black got pretty sweaty hot here in the desert, at one point the inside of the car was 160 degrees in the sun, maybe the white will help a little. For this price though the seats should be vented. Like the new aero wheel much more than the 19, couldn't wait to get those off but will keep these on, they look good with the white car. Got the windows tinted dark ceramic and will add a rear lip spoiler to add the black/white look. Same car - Just more better - Love it - No gas ever again.
