Exactly! JZB + Fox Red FTW! Won't find anything close to those on a 335i.

BTW, even though I have now seen at least 12 new M3's, including 4 E93's today at the local dealer's not a single one has had FR interior! So have yet to see that IRL which is frustrating as am leaning that way (over bamboo).
The BMW dealer in Temple, TX has a SSII E90 Sedan with FR interior on the show room floor, I just drove by the dealer today and seen it the dealer was closed when I got there. I just move down to Killeen, TX 2 two days ago I was just driving around checking out the different area's near me.

I really like Jerez Black, the colour has a lot of depth and variation depending on the lighting. Ff I had to choose I'd pick it any day over Jet Black. Plus it is a little easier to maintain.

So BMW felt the paint was fine and did nothing
uh, JB will be a lot easier to match than Jerez. In fact, dealers don't have JzB touch up even available at this point.

The choice on the colors is yours, don't be fooled by the fact that they both have black in the title. JzB might look black in some lights, but it is purple and blue in the daylight. If you are looking for black, JB is the only way to go IMO. But there is something special about JzB and the fact that it is a unique ///M color.

I am not talking about touch up paint

I mean the BMW paint certified BMW collision centers use

The Jet Black paint they get from BMW has no metallic in it

The reason my car and other JB cars have some metallic flake in the paint is due to contamination during the paint process

Most owners will never notice this because they will never look that closely at the paint or they will not visit someone who has an eye for these type of imperfections in paint.

Well, I sat and called about 30 dealers trying to find a sedan in JB with the options i wanted and no luck. I did find a couple JZB, 1 in particular which I plan to buy Wed

I drove by the dealer again to see the jzb\fr combo - when I started thinking to myself "this could be my car in 3 days" I started to giggle JZB FTMFW!!!

The reason I like JB over JXB is its a bit sportier and agressive to me. I had CB on my previous M3 with cinnamon, and while very attractive, it wasnt as "sporty" as a nice flat black. Plus I like the flat black with the 19's - the sharp contrast of black against silver is nice.

HOWEVER with that said... I was looking at the JZB M next to a JB 335i, since JB is a standard color the cool thing about JZB is it is a unique M color. And it is easier to keep clean, and will not show every single scratch like JB (I have a JB 330i right now).

Anyway, I'm not going to wait 4 more months for JB lol, Jerez Jerez for me

JzB as others and you have noted is a unique ///M colour: that is another big reason why I started evaluating SSII and JzB - which resolved in favour of the latter once I had seen both in person (lot of silver Bimmers).

Good luck and enjoy your JzB M!!

I like the Jerez better. it's more dynamic. It looks dark blue in certain lights and overall has a better shine to it to my eye.

I had a Jerez E92 M3 but only thought it looked good when it was black..... Trust me get the Jet Black, I have it now and I am completely satisfied. The black is really smooth with either set of rims. If you want pics just pm me.

I agree that it looks dark blue in the daylight, don't really see the purple.

I find it to be a far more interesting color than Jet Black.

I did get Jerez and really diggin it. Its so much better than carbon black, as cb was more midnight than black. Jerez appears black metallic except for direct sunlinght only. It has a "wet" look to it all the time. I looked at it next to a JB at the dealer, I'm glad I went with Jerez.

I'm very very happy I jumped on this car.
