My dealer has two cars coming, the demo and the "owner's" IIRC.. both this color. Both black leather. I swear they don't know that other colors exist besides grey shades and black.

I think it's the lighting which is effecting what you are seeing. I actually saw an M3 today in Sparkling Graphite and it looks a lot better than a normal 3 series, thanks the beefed up panels for the multiple shades.

Not a colour I would have considered based on pictures but it does look really well in the fresh.

Be careful with this color. I just saw a 335 in SG. I did not like it. It had a purplish hue to it which was completely different than what I've seen in pictures here or on bmw's website. No disrespect to those that like the color, but nothing beats seeing these things "in the flesh".

Yep...that's my combo. Sparkling graphite and black Novillo leather with carbon fiber leather trim...so far! Might delete the carbon fiber and go with the brushed alumininum as I had it in my e46 M3 and it looked good.

that is true, i love my car but in some lighting it does look purple, which is kinda annoying but then i see it looking a mean dark gray under overcast clouds and i forgive the purple

for all the people that have sparkling graphite. Is it the same color thats on the regular 3 series ? Does it look purple/violet depending on which angle you look at the car ? This is what I think when I look at the regular three series. Thanks

BTW, Regarding the "eggplant" hue: I DONT think the car has purple in it. Look at the first picture where the car looks greenish- there is green glass behind it. I think it is the sky reflecting off the car that makes some think it is eggplant. It tends to adopt a shade of whatever color is around it,
