It comes as no surprise that one of the first dealers to get its hands on a high-spec version of the 2019 3 Series is UAE’s BMW Abu Dhabi Motors. Seen here is the shiny new G20, but not just any ordinary version of the Bavarian sports saloon as it’s a generously equipped 330i finished in a BMW Individual colour.

Called Dravit Gray Metallic, the special shade will be available from summer 2019 in Europe and at home in Deutschland, it will set you back an extra €1,250 whereas the other regular metallic paints are available for €900. Got to pay more to stand out, right? BMW also offers this colour for the new 8 Series grand tourer in both coupe and cabriolet forms, and there’s a good chance the 3 Series Touring will also have it following its expected debut next month at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

Getting back to this rear-wheel-drive 3 Series, it’s a high-end M Sport version with a Merino leather interior in cognac. Also noticeable is the fine-wood trim oak grain on the centre console, dashboard, and some other areas throughout the cabin.

As a refresher, the base 2019 BMW 3 Series Saloon starts off at £37,660 in this 330i configuration. The hotter M340i in both rear- and all-wheel-drive flavours will follow in July 2019, and there’s obviously going to be a range-topping M3 probably due to go on sale sometime next year.
