You are absolutely correct, the interior is indeed Cinnamon

.....as for the external colour :) :)

I went 'Individual' / 'Individual'.......I wanted to try something a little different, even to the listed/available 'Individual' colours :) :)

This is actually a very old BMW colour called "Sparkling Graphite Grey" - took a little bit of time and effort getting it through BMW's 'process' but my dealer helped me through it

I would have liked 20" alloys however, I was concerned about ride quality - I added "Adaptive Suspension" and it is just about right with the 19's here in the UK, I think the 20's would have been too hard

Very good looking color!
Well done!

Rides Bitchin' on 20's.
Either way 19/20 both so low profile hitting that pot hole feels like being torpedoed (not that I know what that actually feels like). ;).

The 19s will undoubtedly yield a better ride, but I've been very pleased with my 20s and run-flats... even in Sport mode. Ride is great and no problems with noise (assuming the door/window closes properly lol).

Nice!!! Congrats!!!

Does "Adaptive Suspension" = Active Roll Stabilization?

Just checked, BMW refer to it as VDC.....Variable Damper Control

Oh ok thanks for clarifying. On BMWNA, we have Dynamic Damping Control but it is standard. I got a little confused when you said you added it. Wanted to make sure I didn't miss a handling option on my build lol.

Definitely not DSB. Looks fantastic.


Driver's side is on the wrong side, though... :rofl:
