That is such a nice way to say purple. The sparkling graphite has a violet hue and Interlagos has lots of pretty purple.

Unfortunately not, but JB looks good IMO (like the blue hue, but I'm afraid it's only visible under artificial light).

Didn't see much purple, but maybe I'm wrong. IMHO it's black most of the time with a little blue in it sometimes. But JB owners would know better.

CF roof makes the purple shade of IB look better. Think the bigger the painted area is, the more of the purple is visible. Does that make sense?

Does that mean the e90 will be the purple people eater and the E92 will be the violet Autobahn back seat little people eater?

LOL, almost right: the E92 will be the blue Autobahn people eater...

Are you willing to join the IB club?

I had my own IB club of one before there was an IB club. I don't know, if I were to join the same club as you, people may believe there is some sort conspiracy going on. By the way, I am also interested in the 18" wheels because the tires will be cheaper, the ride will be better and I won't have to fuss with getting EDC to make up for the lack of sidewall on the 19"s.

Wait: You want IB, 6MT, 18" and no EDC? OMG, it really seems to be a conspiracy...

...not much room to open the 135 or M3's doors. I see one opening on the trailer... Does the driver have to pull a dukes of hazard each time to get out? I'd hate to have shoe prints on the center arm rest and front seat

P.S. second guessing having mine trucked to CA from my dealer...

P.P.S. As a JB owner I can say it def looks to be JB.
