Might have to look into that.

Toughest color you can get.
Yeah, I'm coping with the Carbon Black, and I think Black Sapphire would be about the same. Jet Black would require medication, I'm sure.

This seems like a strange oversight by BMW considering that this car has everything else motorized including the side/rear sunshades and even the sunroof sunshade!
I always feel like an idiot when people are walking by admiring my car, and then I look like an fumbling idiot closing the trunk. Kills the scene.
