I predict the MY2015 F30 will get a different instrument panel, more like the 2013+ F25. And maybe integration of Apple's CarPlay feature.

Midnight Blue is not available on the 435i M-sport. And Imperial Blue is not available on the F36, at all.

So, it must be Carbon Black. Or there is a slight chance it is Tanzanite Blue.

Consensus seems to be Carbon Black. The similar Tanzanite Blue Metallic will be available, but would seem to have a more blue hue than the car in Geneva.

Yep, 24mpg mixed driving/mainly city is what I've experienced. I've had mine for exactly one year. Never needed service, knock wood.

Better drive them both. 528i is a big, slow boat, compared to AH3.

Hard to say. Not sure if any kind of tune would reduce turbo lag. Just make sure you extensively drive the stock car, first. An Eco credit/lower price would make decisions easier.
