When you order the 19" wheels, do you have the option of getting them black. Can you order black wheels through BMW?

Yeah, they will do it through individual but I believe there is a sub $1K charge. I keep tossing up between silver and black but I think silver is a nice, cleaner look.

Personal choice though.....

Silver is one of those neutral colors that works well with anything, except perhaps more silver on the inside since the same color inside and out might be dull; the only color that seems to pull that off is black. Of the remaining options, SS/Red would definitely be the most striking and sporty, and is definitely a sweet combo. SS/Bamboo on the other hand swings you far over to the classy end of the spectrum (though personally I think that combo sacrifices TOO much sportiness to be used on an M3), and a black interior goes with anything since black is also a neutral color. SS/Black is basically a balance between sporty and classy, maybe a tad toward sporty but still low-key.

Le Mans is nice ,to each his own, but too dark for me as far as blues go. You know what color I'd pick. I agree a black interior goes best with silver.

I was a huge fan of Monte Carlo blue, actually I had a e46 M3 in a similar color, BMW called it Estoril Blue back then, I believe they are the same colour with different names. It is so eye catching, I always get complaints about the color. However, it is a bit too bright of my taste now, maybe I'm getting old. I'd take the Lemans blue now, it is just classic since e39 m5, make sure u get a set of mag blue te37s if u get the color...

^ MCB and Estoril aren't the same color, though they definitely are similar. BMW actually has a new color called Estoril II that I believe IS the same as Estoril but is water-based (Estoril wasn't, which is why it hasn't been available even through Individual). Or if Estoril II isn't exactly the same color as Estoril, it's probably as close as BMW could get.

Black extended Novillo leather with the brushed aluminum trim. The trim really helps break up the dark interior.

I was recently informed by two well-regarded dealers that the 359M wheels in black are NOT available as an Individual option in the US. Other markets may have these wheels as an option, but not the US. If you want those wheels, you can buy them from any number of BMW parts retailers.

Well thanks everyone for all the help!

Finally ordered today and went for MCB with moonroof and silver wheels. Also went black extended leather with brushed aluminium trim.

I'm excited to see how it all comes together.

Now for the long longggg wait until April.......
