So few E93 Sparkling Graphite pics

Thought I'd contribute mine since Sparkling Graphite E93s seem to be somewhat rare...

not too sure about this color, it doesn't seem to look good in picture or real life. It give a sense that the car is always in dirty mode for some reason.

the only time I think the color will look good is under bright sun where it really show it purple hue.

I know this posted over a year ago, but I have to say that this is one of the most ignorant things I've ever read

U guys who can afford the M3 - lucky dogs...

Anyway, I had this colour (beloved Sparkling Graphite Metallic) on my former 325i sedan. It's way better than Space Grey. It's the closest thing to gunsteel BMW currently offers. The only minor downside is that in direct sunlight the colour gives-off a bit of a mauvish hue - not that big of a deal, though I'd take the older gunsteel grey (or whatever it was called a few years back). Your car looks great with those dark grey rims. For God's sake, don't put in a red interior. Consider staying with Black (not bad at all) or perhaps even saddle brown??? Consider burl wood trim. Anyway, great car - enjoy!

Nice!


If this color did not have the eggplant hue to it in certain lighting, I would have gotten it for my E92 in a heartbeat.

It's a great color you just have to keep it clean. I was going to get blue but when I saw Graphite I just went for it. No regrets..
I posted photos of my graphite sedan a couple days ago if you haven't already seen them yet here a link:
