I'm not quite clear on this, has palladium silver changed or is the old bluish one still available as well?

The bluish one is stil available (Silver Novillo) while the Palladium Silver Novillo option is grey/silver in color without any hint of blue.

Wait..I thought Palladium Silver Novillo and Silver Novillo were the same thing. Just a shortened name of the other.

Nope.

It seems that Palladium Silver and Silver are the same things in regards to the M3. Palladium silver is simply the full name for Silver Novillo. It is verified by the M3 Catalog where they use both "Silver" and "Palladium Silver" in their wording. Just wanted to clear that up.

Addtional Packages:
Convenience
Premium 2

Additional Ext Color:
Mineral White- sort of like a pearl white, also offered on the new 7-series.

Additional Leather Colors:
Palladium Silver Novillo- More "grey-silver than blue-grey"
Red/Black Novillo- Black Leather Seats with Red accents

Tech package was NOT offered as Comfort Access and Navigation are now part of other packages. The SA and I didn't know how to order MDrive/EDC as there was not package that included it- the SA was thinking they are standard now instead. Anyone have any idea about these new additions?
I just placed an order on 7/17 and I was surprised about the new options in color. I also want mineral white as I saw it person at the local dealership on a 740. I really like it. I did not know about the black with red insert for interior. Did they have any pictures to show on that? I ordered with fox red extended. Maybe the two tone would look better if there are pictures for show? I can still change my order since it hasn't gone into production.

Were they able to give you a production number yet to track. My SA could not provide one yet as they are showing up blocked for pricing.

FLP:

Can you describe mineral white? It's really hard to tell how it looks in pictures I've found. I've heard it described as a combo of silver and white (as opposed to a "pearly" white). I'm thinking I may go for that color and the black/red seats on the E93 I'm ordering...but I don't want a silver car.
