My new Black Sapphire 330

Here are some pictures of my new 3. In one of the pictures you can see a very close up of the Black Sapphire paint. If you step back a couple of feet the car looks very dark black. I hope you all enjoy your 3 as much as I have so far! If you have any questions please contact me. I was able to connect my Motorola a630 bluetooth phone and also program my garage door opener to spot #1 on the mirror.

Thanks all for your support as I waited for my car to arrive.

Gret pics, beautiful car, congratulations! I too would be curious to see the Terra contrast with black, for a long time I hesitated between that interior color and lemon, before choosing the latter.

No kidding... that green house cracks me up.

The guys down at the dealership as well as customers passing by my new 3 were amaized by the Black Sapphire/Terra combo. I love the Terra! Photos do not do it justice.

I'll post interior pic's soon.

nice car...

You planning on mounting the license plate later?

Did you tell the dealer to NOT drill any holes into the bumper or are the holes pre-drilled?

Terra with which trim?

This is my choice on exterior color - just about to order but still having issues with which trim..

What trim do you have with the Terra?? I was thinking alum trim but in person, seems too busy??, next choice is Burl Walnut (haven't seen poplar)

I do not plan to attach the front plate. They did not drill holes. I figured that if I get in trouble with the police then I can simply attach the plate carefully with 3M tape.

I am so glad I got the Burl trim because it looks very good with the Terra! I was going to get the alum trim but with the Terra being an earth tone I thought it made sense to go with an earth tone trim. The grain of the Burl ties in the Terra very well. Good luck!

I'm more in the southern Portland area. I'm on the road all the time up in the area though. Have a great time on your trip and if you haven't seen the Terra in person then you are going to be super excited! Every time I open the door to show someone the Terra interior, their jaw drops.

A lady pulled up next to me the other day in the parking lot and with excitement she said "what color of paint is that". In the daytime the Black Sapphire looks like a sparkling steel and at night it looks jet black with really really vibrant reflections of the surroundings. You can get an idea by the above pic's.

Cool

She's a beauty! I'm waiting on my 2006 330i to be delivered next week. I'm salivating already. Titanium metalic silver w/ beige leather and wood trim with premium pkg. How many miles have you logged on yours? Is the paint job stock or custom? That's one sweet car you got. Enjoy

Very nice car
Don't hate me for this but I can't stop picturing your car w/clear headlights w/o that orange thingy! Is it just me?
