....just sick! Congrats. I'm glad I changed my color combination now. I had a JB convertible on order with JB with extended silver and wood trim. I'm glad I changed to bamboo and wood especially after seeing your pics!

Very nice looking. Can not get much more classy looking than black/tan. The warmth of the wood even futhers the look as classic. Enjoy.

Hey, appreciate the compliments. I am really happy with the color combo. The car gets double takes all day and night. The engine sounds glorious, not disappointed at all. I am on a road trip and have to say the car is great on the highway and is averaging 20+ mpg, that's cruising at 75mph no A/C running. The ride is nice in normal mode, not too bumpy not too soft. The DCT modes really work well although it is starting to seem pretty silly to have so many transmission settings (eleven I think)...I need more time to really analyze that. So far 500 miles and the car is a dream. Really tight, no fit or finish problems, no problems with steering feel etc...no disappointments other than the speaker going south. The passing power on the highway is incredible. It is really hard to not drive like you are at the Indy 500...but I have realized that there is just as much joy in taking a deep breath, remaining calm, and taking the right lane so all can pass the king and observe lol. As always in a new BMW, everyone wants to race...but for now, that will have to wait. Trying to break her in nice.

One note about the photos I posted. In all the photos I think the color of the wood trim is accurate, but the BB leather color is most accurately portrayed in the shots from outside the car at a distance. The closeup shots of the interior really represent the BB leather a bit over exposed and too light. It is really a nice dark beige though not the cinnamon I wanted...it's still very nice. The feel of the leather is also excellent. I will post more pics, maybe a decent vid and more comments in the coming days as I am still out of town.

Having the time of my life beats the shixt outta Baghdad

Beautiful Car!! Congrats! This just reaffirms my choice in color combination. I just want to thank all the posters for putting up pix, this forum is 1000x more useful than any visualizer.

I keeping on going back and forth with the sunroof though, and these pix don't make the decision any easier...

Sexy! On a side note, since I have been practicing shifting in the //M3, I finally tried launching with the Sport Plus and EDC mode #2. Still waiting for break in at 2000km, but shifting at 5k rpm, me and my buddy had our heads blasted back. DAMN!
