That is Jerez Black, for sure. But in daily driving, it will never be as blue as you see it on the pictures. But I love the color and I am really excited for it.

As for the DCT, I think its a fantastic options. I am used to the e46 LEDs in the rev counter, so it's take some time for me to get used to the new LEDs. Wonder why they changed it up that much. Either way, can't wait for the new gearbox.

Best regards,

CSL

Nice pics, but I'm still not a fan of a wood trim M3...

It has a trunk, just close the roof. The sedan would not have any room in the trunk if you tried to shove its roof in the trunk.

That black is sharp and it would be my 1st choice. But, I can not keep a car that clean so I plan on going Space Gray / Fox Red.

Those are killer pictures as well. If the blue would show through that much in regular light, I would just have to figure out how to keep it clean.

Is it still an M3 if it has a convertible roof and wood trim?

Did BMW show anything else interesting at Geneva?

The problem with the lighter colors is that they will not hide the gaps in the folding roof very well. I'm sure that's why BMW decided to launch it in Jerez

Agree. I want to see a 3 series vert in gray to see if I can live with the lines in gray. I did not like the white they were originally showing due to the contrast of the roof lines.

If only they would have put the carbon fiber in the middle like the coupe. Now that would have been super sweet! Could use the shaving of any pounds as well.

After seeing a video of the show, it almost looks interlagos blue. It is amazing how inside light brings out the blue of jeraz. For those that have seen this color IRL, I assume you lose this outside. Is that right?
