My new '11.5 TITANIUM SILVER E93 M3

Love the car! My first M and had to have Titanium Silver special ordered because I wasn't a fan of the bluish tones in Silverstone. Some crappy phone pics below... will have to take real pics at some point (once I stop driving it around to get the break-in over with!)

P.S. I got Anthracite wood interior with extended black leather. It's a sick combo. I don't care what anyone says... super classy and nice inside. To those debating the wood, get it! It's a nice very dark brown (even darker than the standard wood on the 3). I like it a lot.

Nice! Congrats!

Is this an Individual color?

Thanks! Yes, it is. Although all over the place on non-M cars, it's an Individual color for the M. $5,000 premium in the U.S. for it... but it's exactly the color I want, so it was worth it.

Silverstone is definitely baby blue at certain angles/light. When I went to pick up my car this week, the dealer picked me up from the airport in a Silverstone M3 which originally freaked me out because it was VERY baby blue with the mid-day Florida sun. His first words to me: "Don't worry, this isn't your car."
I think to see the comparison you just have to go to a dealership... cliche I know, but pics can't really show the nuance.

I'll take some today. Can't roll down the windows/top though to take some direct sun on the pics because I just tinted the car, but I'll try to go somewhere bright.

More pics as promised... including some interior shots. If anyone is wondering what the button is on the lowest button panel (that usually is completely empty), it's the new "auto on-off" feature. As others have said, it's default is set to "off" (which means it's lit up). I tried turning it on, and it does what it's supposed to do... shuts off the engine at a stop light (completely silent in the car), then as soon as you let go of the break, it starts the engine again in about half a second-1 second and you're off. Pretty cool.. not sure how much gas it actually saves but don't want to use it during the break-in. Bluetooth audio, btw, whoever is wondering... works fantastic.

Congrats on getting exactly the car you wanted! Titanium looks good on an M E93.

classy

Classic sports car color. Noticed spoiler delete.
I went TiAg also with a coupe and don't regret it.
Now you have a very unique ride.
Congrats.
P.S. Ditto on the amber reflector delete. I've got clear now and it works OK
