Jerez Black in person....disappointed

my dealer has a JzB Sedan. under the showroom lites, it looks very , very dark blue. what really bothered me was the lack of metalflake in the metallic. the Csomos black and the carbon black had much more metal flake to the point. i thought maybe its cause I was inside, but the showroom was very well lit.

I disagree. I think the Jerez black on the sedan, with 19" wheels, looks aggressive and very mean. I think it might be the color I go with.

Have you see this color in person?

It looks way darker in pictures than in person.

well it was near a jet black 760il and it made theJet black look really glossy, deep, super dark and rich.

Looks like its Jet Blk for me.

You are saying you saw it in the showroom. Everything I read so far suggests it looks much darker in daylight and artifical lights bring out the blue?

Out in the sun it did not appear blue to me at all - most definitely black. However, it did not appear to have the depth or edge of a straight jet black...it looked softer I thought.

what was disappointing to me was the lack of sparkle - lack of metallic look - if you pay extra for metallic you should be able to see it sparkle.

i was actually very impressed by jerez black and questioned my decision on my alpine white for about 0.0000009 of a second.. but all kidding aside i think the deep blue angle you get at certain views in the black looks great

Talking I just finally seem Jerez Black today its sweet

I like Jerez Black I ordered my M3 in Jerez black. I look at the color like this its a special M3 Color and it is different. I saw the color on a M3 sedan and it made the sedan look mean aggressive and stand out. If you are going pay $70,000 plus thousand for a M3 car it better have a color different from the rest of the normal BMW.......1, 3,5,6,and 7 series model types.

i'd usually agree that it is cool for an M car to have a unique color, but the choices are so freakin' limited!

I have seen it at 4 different dealers and swear it looked different each time. This was inside the dealerships, not outside. I like the fact it seems to have the ability to illuminate different shades under different lighting ... just hope it's the same outside. Plus, this is a M3 only color.

When I went to see it, it was really purple under the lights; like close to techno violet. Still though, I love it. It's black most of the time, but different than any other black out there.

I thought it looked like carbon black. Not my cup of tea due to obscuring of body lines and incredible paint maintenance issues.
