Arrow Post a picture of your diesel powered BMW!

For the sanctity of this thread, and not reposting my pictures from another thread that I started, I'm just gonna link that thread.

Hmm - link to a thread of pics of YOUR car? Why not a more neutral thread? Or do you want everyone to comment on yours again?

To the OP - any pics of yours?

Because it's silly to post the same pics twice in the same forum, that's why. I'm not the one that thought it was a good idea to make a sticky for car pics when there are already threads containing them. WTF do I care if people comment on my car? If they want to, they can. If not, they can look at the 40 or so pics I posted (rather than doing it again here), and enjoy them.

And yes, since this thread is posting pics about each owner's diesel car, it *is* pics to my car...since that's what the thread requests.

Now, provide something constructive to the thread, like pics of your car, like the OP asked, instead of harassing me.

Nice! Thanks for sharing, lalitkanteti (man, that's a mouthful...had to look at it like 8 times to make sure I spelled it right).

No diesel for me yet, I just wanted to get one of these threads going so everyone can share their pictures instead of starting a new thread every time a new member gets a new BMW.

I'm a big fan of the 3 series touring. It'd be dream to get one in diesel. I had a e46 wagon I loved.

Great pics, btw

Its just beautiful. I ordered Deep Sea Blue with Chestnut Brown Interior. I was very very close to ordering it with oyster though. Probably should have. Apparently my order was converted over to production really early and I couldn't make any more changes over a month out of picking it up. Trip to Munich 7/10/10...almost here!

Some pics of my '10 335d

Got it in April to take advantage of the eco credit.

I had some time yesterday to be a little creative with my camera, looking at different effects with a tele and super WA.

let me know what you think.

It's a D700 with a 14-24 2.8 lens. I like to overexpose by a 1/3rd when taking pics of my car to bring out the true color of the Monaco, but good eye

I finally took some photos, which meant I had to make sure the car was cleaned up.

I'll just post one pic for now, but it is probably the best one - plus it shows a good view the DEF filler port!

Everyone seems to have a hard time figuring out what color it is... can you tell? The color changes so much that it is like a different car every time I see it.

Is that Alcatraz in the background?

I'm guessing it is light grey?

1. Correct!
2. No, not light grey.

Re: #1 - you have a very sharp eye. You can see a tiny reflection of another well-known landmark reflected in the car windows.

Want to take another guess at the color? I told you it is a puzzler...

Resolution is not that great, is it the Jermiah Obrien?

OK, so it is not light gray. I'm gonna go with some sort of blue, but not Monaco.
