Exactly why I went for the same colour! What colour interior did you go for? Looks like Oyster from your Picture.


It is indeed Oyster. It was a bit of a risk (even the dealership were apprehensive!) but it works really well. Looks better in real life than on the pictures. I find the black makes the interior very dark and the red, as nice as it is, was just a bit too in-yer-face for me. It's a lovely colour but just a bit too bright for me. This is the first time I've had anything other than an all black interior and I love how light and airy the Oyster leather makes the interior feel.

By the way, the pics of your car on Instagram kept me more and more excited for mine!

In words it doesn't work, Its different but it actually looks really nice! Pictures never do a colour justice. I love Glacier Silver in different lighting. I think this image shows the different shades well.

I planned on getting the black/oyster combo in the beginning but I'm so happy with GS/Coral.

Lol I'm glad my pictures could be of service to you!

Good combo in my opinion

Not the best picture in the world, but finally we have + deg & I had to take it to the wash.

Full detailing & beauty shot will have to come later.

In case you are wondering, its 17" winter wheel sets. The 18" stock summer set is chilling in my basement.

My first car was silver, I have since black, red, white, & now blue.
I think every color has its charm, & it also depend on what car.

I am a bit disappointed at the lack of color options on the M135/140i. The cream blue on the M3 looks so sick, & I will pay more for that.

Love the car, obviously. But I think I'd rather have your garage!

Indeed. Im going to miss my Kuat rack ... still not giving up. Any new ideas ?

If I end up with a roof rack would go for black bars as well. And perhaps the black Kuat fork rack.
