I just test drove an Alpine White 540i MSport on Friday, with Cognac interior. I have to say, even though it's Dakota (I currently have Merino Individual), the Cognac was sharp and striking, with...

Dark Graphite, like most of the other colors, is not new for G30, right? There are many F10's you can probably spot with this color. Pretty much, well, dark gray. Some people report subtle...

Alex, I think you will love the 540i. I drove 2 MSports now. They are considerably faster feeling than my '14 535i. I can't compare to E43 (have not driven it), I'm just saying the new G30 is...
