I think that may be my favorite color. Just a couple shades lighter than carbon black. Love it.

That color looks so good. It is almost like Monaco blue and Carbon Black had a baby.

Awesome color! I saw it there when I picked up my 335. I did a double take just to figure out what color it was. Stunning in person and tons of metal flake. Great choice and congrats!

As everyone else said really nice color. I like it more than carbon black (looks like a lighter, more blue version of that to me from the pics)

Thanks again for comments. So glad that I pulled the trigger on the S65 rather than waiting for the M4

Oh, and when you wear out those Pirelli tires (you know, in 10-12K miles), make sure to replace them with Michelin PSSes.
Skimped on the Premium Sound, and no plan to part with it yet but you never know. If I do the forum will be notified.

Its definitely lighter than carbon black, but still gets dark which is cool. It will go from Deep Sea Blue to Imperial/Monaco to Carbon Black and its cool because xenon headlights show the turquoise so those following get another dimension.

Love that color! It's very interesting in the way it reflects the light at different times of the day or during inclement weather. Great choice!
