2022 BMW M340i xDrive looks passionate in purple

This car is painted Daytona Violet Metallic, which looks great on the 3 Series, but costs an extra $4,500.

Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

The M340i xDrive doesn't suffer from huge-grille-itis like other BMWs... not yet, at least.

This high-performance sedan's interior is well built and solid, but some of the materials are merely OK.

The backseat is a bit tight and those narrow door openings make it a challenge to get into and out of.

This color is called Daytona Violet Metallic and it's lovely.

Unfortunately, this special paint job costs a whopping $4,500.

M340i models offer more performance than lesser versions of the 3 Series without being as over-caffeinated as the M3 family.

A 3.0-liter turbocharged I6 delivers 382 horsepower, 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds and plenty of smiles.
