sorry there MI6, didn't mean to steal the wind from your sails. haha. if you like we can arrange something where i submit rough drafts of all my posts to you before i actually post them. and then you can give me the thumbs up or down on them.

also, it doesn't look like black sapphire is an option on the car according to bmw international's website. only black or jerez black.

I'm hoping to special order one in Crimson Red, a standard BMW color that is brighter than Melbourne Red. That is, unless a brighter red (like the old Electric Red on my 330i) doesn't materialize sometime during the life of the car.

An alternative for me might be Alpine White - it looks great with the CF roof.

The Silverstone looks like it has a greenish tint to it. If that is true I will have to go with Space Gray. If it's just an illusion of the photograph, then I'll go with Silverstone.

Sparkling Graphite or Space Grey for me. Althoguh, the Jerez Black looks impressive. The lighter colors show more detail from the rear; i.e. the diffuser around the tail pipes is not evident with a dark color. I don't like the look of the pipes just hanging there without being able to see the rear fascia sculpted partially around them.

I realy can not choose; have too see these collors IRL

For me it is between interlagos blue, red or black.

Seems the TiAg is gone, but Silverstone has replaced it. Now I don`t know the difference between these 2 collors, have too see it.

sorry ase2dais, the color in geneva was 'chrome shadow' - a concept only color that is prohibitively expensive in cost and highly unsuited to actual driving conditions as far as durability goes

No it was chrome shadow. BMW uses it on their M concepts. As you might tell from the photos it is very reflective and shows off the light and dark highlights. I have the press package for the M3 concept from Geneva and it says it was painted in Chrome Shadow.
