jai5w4, here are some more pics:
Not so much in bright sunlight (and the last one is an E92 335d), but gives you an idea.
The first one really is an Azurite, found on a dealer's lot. The dealer also had the sticker showing that it was an Azurite Black.
It glows when it's in sunlight. It looks like the first one when it's dreary/ overcast. And even when it's dreary, it looks like a very dark blue, rather than a black.
Here is an Individual catalogue (attached) with lots of pics of various cars in Individual paint & interior. There's even a page with samples of the various blues - Midnight Blue, Azurite, Carbon Black, Onyx, etc. (p. 48) - although those are notoriously not representative of the real colors, it may at least give you a sense of the spectrum...
From that catalogue, I get the sense that Midnight Blue is the lightest blue (of the dark blues). I thought about Blue Onyx as well, or Carbon Black.
