Have you seen it in real life?

I've seen it under various lighting conditions, it's got a lot of violet (purple) in it. I personally like it, but I like the Space Gray better on the sedan...

I've lived with Space Gray for the past 1.5 years and it's a great color. Dirt proof, cop proof, elegant and outstanding when waxed & clean.

My dealer has a IB M3 coupe but i only been able to see it at night.

I plan to make a trip during the day over there tomorrow to see it under the sun. Then head over to my ED guy and change the color if im in awe.

We shall see. Part of me wants IB since it stands out and sportier yet the Space Gray just seems classier. Oy.

ARE U FULL OF ....... ABOUT UR PURCHASE PRICE???

U got about 8,000 off MSRP on an 09 M3 sedan. that's not 1000 over invoice. that's like close to 2000 below invoice. I know u said its ED, but that still way too much discount.

are u a salesman posing on the forumn??

2009 M3 Sedan
Space Gray
Bamboo Beige Leather
Carbon Leather trim
Premium Package
Tech Package
M-DCT
Heated seats
Moonroof

U.S MSRP = $65,925
My ED price = $58,085 (1k above ED invoice)

Still wondering if i should change the order to Interlagos Blue though?

Let the massive wait begin.
Congrats Crazy Bimmer!

Question for you... did you consider brushed aluminum trim versus carbon leather with your interior leather choice?

I'm torn between the two... I'm going for the Space Grey and the Bamboo Leather, but still pondering the trim.

I actually like it when the dash is all one color which is why i picked Carbon leather trim.

Plus the doors with black, bamboo and silver in the aluminum would be too many colors for me.

Does look excellent - saw an E93 in this combo at BMW Welt last year. The sales dude nearly creamed his jeans (well, wool pinstripe suit) when we told him we'd be back same time '09 for an E92

Re OP's colour choices: I'd favour IB: it's more singular as there's Le Mans has facsimiles out there on the road.

Also why I chose JzB: a fairly unique colour:

Well I put in my dates today for May 28th, 29th and 30th. If you're picking yours up June 1st then maybe we can meet up and take dual euro pictures. Not sure yet how long we staying for though.

I will know Monday if any of those dates was approved.

Jerez black is beautiful but i had black cars already. Time for a flashy blue!

Keep us updated on your Euro plans. I have NO CLUE what i plan to visit while being there.

The blues are definitely more 'shouty' than the JzB. I guess I like JzB's subtlety: but then I opted for extended Fox Red as my lairy expression

I'll PM you re dates, but sounds like we'll be at least 3 days off.

Good luck re dates. BTW, June 1 is the beginning of the holidays in Germany so the roads can get pretty busy on that Monday. May be a good day to have a nice bier in one of the great Brauerei (brew houses) in Bavaria. And cab it to the hotel

honestly, the color doesn't matter.
what matters is you have a bad ride coming, and on top of that you get to drive it through europe on a trip!

Good move on the IB. They took us on a hot lap at the M school in an interlagos sedan. Beautiful car.
