I see, you don't like it so it's not appealing.

Sorry, it slipped my mind and I forgot to post pics. Will try tonight.

Color is a very personal decision of course. Personally, I can't see buying an M car and not going with an M exclusive color but to each his own.

You can't make up your own facts. Show me more than the occasional post that asserts this combo isn't possible? I compare that to a fairly good size community of people that ordered and then received SSII/FW without a comment from the sales person.

Now I wouldn't be surprised if the dealer community doesn't spec a lot of them for the showroom. While they're quite unremarkable looking, AW, Blacks, SG with black interiors have a greater probability of being "okay" to the average shopper that wants to drive off with a car that day.

I am not making up facts. When buyers are told they cannot order the combo, there are some misinformed sales people out there. I never said nor implied that most sales people are under the impression it is not possible.

I'm not arguing with you about the color combo and whether is can be order, which seems to be your impression of my comments...

And I agree on your commet about the other color combos being "okay" for the average buyer. Same rational as to why dealers rarely stock manual cars for dealer inventory.
