Mein Auto: 11 550i-Dark Graphite ED
Euro Del F10 550i ordered today

Finally, (with a lot of information gathered from this board) I ordered a Euro Del 550i from John Wolff at East Bay BMW (one email from me, one email from him accepting my offer) as it should be.

Confirmed pick up date: July 30, 2010

Options:

Exterior color: Sophisto Grey
Interior: Black Dakota with Brown wood trim
205 Steptronic
2TB Sport Automatic
ZP2 Premium Package 2
ZSP Sport Package
ZCW Cold weather Package
ZDA Driver Assistance Package
ZDH Dynamic Handling Package
2VH Integral Active Steering
775 Anthracite Headliner

I will miss the Carbon Black and I am dissappointed that I will not have an M package, but I can't change the timing. What is really the best part, I am taking my 15yo son with me to Germany, his first time, we will be there for 3 weeks. My itinerary will take us from Munich to Austria, Switzerland, Black Forrest, to the North Sea, Berlin and then to a small village in the Rhineland just west of Frankfurt before dropping the car off in Frankfurt. This is my 3rd Euro Del, but first time at the WELT. ED Calendar updated

You mean the Jet Black? Not sure, but I know that they offer Black Sapphire Metallic. My new favorite dark color is easily the Sophisto Grey (Dark Graphite Metallic in the US code A90). Gorgeous color and your car sounds like it will be a lot of fun, enjoy and GL!!!

Carbon black is an exclusive color for the M Sport line. Think of a mignight blue but darker, and during the day when the sun hits it just right, it had blueish purple hues to it. Its a gorgeous color.

Carbon Black is/was offered on the M sport, it is like having a dark blue and a black car all in one. Very cool color.
