335xi Mineral Grey
 
5 Attachment(s)
We traded in black 328xi and wanted to changes colour, had silver and white in past. Liked emperial blue but was very similar to black. Found Mineral grey at dealer ship - new colour and liked it, looks great on sport line as it blends well with black grill and black lining around the windows, also the sport line wheels (397) are blackish(alloy colour) than polished silver(like luxury) and looks sporty in mineral grey.
At the end it is personal choice and I believe there are several choices.
Done 1300 miles(2000kms) - most driving in comfort mode but must say 335 in sport/sport plus changes into totally different car.
Is it true that M sport package does not come with x-drive this what our CA told us and we needed drive for Canadian weather.

Mineral Grey is the best F30 color, certainly better than Black Sapphire.

To see what really is available from BMW you need to read the BMW ordering guide for your country, the BMW web sites are not always correct or up to date. You should just be able to google it.

You're mistaken, it's the second best. Mojave's the best. :thumbup: Carry on.

Is the glazed donut crust on the steering wheel exclusive to the 335?

Well it's definitely fastest, we can all agree on that much at least.

f 30 colours
 
It was exclusive to our 335, it all gone now. I had a sticky tape on the wheel try to rub with napkin and got all that glaze, one wet wipe and all out, actually never realized shows so well - it all Canon's (xsi) fault.
thanks for pointing out will change the pic.

Agree, it does look great on current F30 series. I did'nt notice until we saw at dealership. It is a new color and different from space grey which we had on outgoing model, infact it is darker than grey on Mercedes or Audi and is a eye catcher. Recommended for someone who is bored with black.:thumbup:

I had a Space Grey E90 and was completely bored with it, had to get it nose-to-nose with an F30 in Mineral Grey to make sure the new color was different and I was blown away by how much deeper and dynamic it is. The way the light hits it, paints the car in 10 shades of grey depending on which angle you're looking at it. The flame surfacing rocks with Mineral Grey like no other color.

I feel awful for people who picked a different color, I truly do.

I totally agree. My 335 xi Mineral Gray is coming next week. I can't wait.

Steering wheels are same for both 328 and 335...they only vary by line.

It looks very nice. What interior color does it have? Any photos? Enjoy! :thumbup:

I ordered mine in Mineral Grey this week. It is in production now. I can't wait. Love the color.

I saw the Mojave at the dealership the other day. I must say it is very sharp. I almost changed my mind but stuck with the Mineral Grey.

Mojave is nice, and its not that popular. Having said that, I love the Mineral Grey, even better than Space Grey. BMW hit a homerun with MG. I was just giving BJ a hard time. :D

The MG is alot closer to the Sparkling Graphite which was in the E90 2006-2007 lineup. I would go with MG again, except that its too similar to my current SG E90.

No, it is not. Don't say something so blasphemous.

Sparkling Graphite had a purple hue, just like Estoril Blue II. Mineral Grey has no purple at all.
