Great Pix! Thanks antinontoxic. Just ordered my JB with 18 in wheels (could not wait for the 19's). Now pondering which aftermarket wheels will look the best....

Why should anyone believe you? You fall into the "people who saw it told me" category which according to you should not be believed. lol

Why do I fall into that category?

I have seen Jerez Black with my own eyes, many times, unlike you who hasn't.

How can you say Jerez Black has much more blue in it than Carbon Black when clearly it hasn't, both when you see it in IRL and when you look at the constituants of the colour?

Jet = BLACK, Jerez = dark BLUE, Carbon = What everyone perceives to be "Jerez Black"

I just test drove a Jet Black M3 this past weekend in Kaiserslautern...where there is also a Jerez Black M3 with the tan leather and wood trim (horrid combo) and was lucky enought to be there when a German pulled up to the dealer downtown in a Carbon Black E46. We fumbled around in communication with my limited German and his English. Even though the three cars were not sitting right next to one another, we made multiple trips back and forth between them...noticing that Jet Black is definitely black (of course), Carbon Black on this individual's E46 danced between black and blue, and the Jerez was prominently BLUE in the sunlight. We had to twist and turn our heads around angles to see the true darkness of Jerez Black...which at the right angles did look very black...but to say that Jerez Black is mainly black...definitely NOT from our view point. To me, Jerez Black is the flirting version of Monaco Blue on the 3-series..."it looks blue, but wait, is it black, noooo, wait.....it's blue." LOL Jerez is definitely in between Carbon Black and Monaco Blue. Or in other words, the direct negative of Carbon Black...Blue first...black at certain angles (in person in high sunlight).

Dude, I was just joking. Cool down. Did you see the post under yours? He has also seen Jerez in real life. He says it is very blue. Many have said that. I answered basing on that. I am torn between Jerez black and Alpine White myself. It would be great to hear comments on those colors. Have you seen both in real life? What are your opinions on it? Once again, I was just kidding.

OK, Jerez Black is good for a dark colour, but it really should be called Jerez Blue as many have said on here. I think the difference between it and carbon black is very small, which is reflected in the make up of the colours when you look percentages of colour etc.

Alpine white is OK, but in my opinion it hides the lines too much, unlike Silverstone II which is why I'm getting the latter.

Color choice is very subjective... IMO Jerez can look black or blue depending... AW shows the lines better than any other color IMO. Probably why BMW highlights AW in their press releases

Hmmm, I test drove a white one a few months ago, and the thing I noticed is that it made it difficult to see the little creases etc in the body work.

Personally, I like the Carbon Black better than Jerez due to it looking more black than blue. I've always been a fan of solid non-metalic black, and currently have the Jet Black on order. I know black is a lot of work keeping clean, but I think it's well worth it to have a sleak black vehicle. It just makes cars look more bad a$$ in my opinion.

Thanks for your opinion. I have seen Carbon Black Metallic and I liked it. So, I will like Jerez too.

US Style 219M on JzB

This one (mine) is the only picture of this combo I've seen. The car is dirty, the weather overcast, so not the best picture. If the weather ever clears I'll take some better ones. Personally I don't like the combo and have already ordered some BBS RS-GTs for it.
