Carbon black vs sapphire black.
 
Hows it going, wondering if you guys have any good pics of those colors on an x6, having a hard time deciding between those two. Also Ivory white interior vs oyster and what trim? Thanks appreciate it.

I have a sapphire X5, with m package so we could got the carbon black
We went with the sapphire because it has more flecks in the paint and actually is black, while carbon is blue-ish
It end up to be a personal choice, I could only decide after seeing them alive

True, the sapphire is true black and the carbon has blue flecks and either looks black or dark, dark, blue depending on the light. I wanted Oyster/Black interior and was open on exterior, so took what the dealer had in stock without much thought. I was happily surprised to see the complexity of the carbon black and am VERY happy that I ended up with it vs. the Sapphire black, but it is ultimately personal choice. I agree, that you need to see them in person to appreciate the difference.
