I've changed my Mind

After much, much deliberation I have changed my mind on my choice of colour and interior trim

I have changed from Space Grey to Jerez black. This is for two reasons:

1) I wanted a "MEAN" look:rocks:
2) Wanted a specific M3 colour - ie, not a colour that other 3 series can get

This was tough - cause I loved the M3 CSL E46 in the grey and space grey is quite similar.

Also changed from Aluminium trim back to titanium - as I want my car ASAP:rocks:

What do you think?

January would be exteremely optimistic for the West Coast since the US builds are "supposed" to start in December.

I respect the choice of Alpine White, but IMHO i think that Jerez Black is the colour to get!

Just repeating what the SA stated, he hasn't been wrong too many times before.

We can only hope!!!!

Aluminium trim is finished in a brushed aluminium style and is 250 option.

Titanium is standard trim and a darker metal colour and costs 0. I changed because I had learnt from another member on this forum that if you chose aluminium trim it would delay delivery of your car

Jerez black is going to look awesome I am sure. I have heard it is similar to Carbon black which is a great color in person. However, I hate how easy it is to destroy a nice black paint job. Black cars look clean for about 12 hours after washing.
