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.
First looks like space grey but since its not then it should be blue water

OK, so it is not light gray. I'm gonna go with some sort of blue, but not Monaco.
Nope... not grey and not blue. There are not too many choices left!

Since the resolution is not great, I'll post another picture so you can see what was reflected in the windows.

Great shot! Still can't make out the color though.

I miss Northern Cal, great place to drive, I especially loved Marin County and of course Hwy 1 down the coast to Half Moon Bay, Monterrey, Big Sur, etc... You can have the traffic though.

Probbaly about the best I can do around here is the Overseas Hwy down to Key West.

I sent a different set of photos to my mother, who said "what a nice blue car".

Most of the time it looks dark bluish grey, however if the lighting conditions are just right you'll see a little bit of green. I'll attach another pic, which captures one of those moments.

I have yet to take it on a really long drive. Hwy 1 can be quite dramatic, in good and bad ways! Another of my favorite drives and destinations is Sonoma. Lots of rolling hills and great scenery.

I also enjoy going to Tahoe. It will be interesting to observe the fuel mileage through the flat parts. I'm hoping the climate control does its thing when the temperature gets into triple digits around Sacramento.

As for the traffic - at least there is a lot to enjoy IN the car. My last car didn't have navigation so I'm really glad to have it. My only complaint is that the sound system isn't nearly as nice as what I had before. I might have to do something about that, but will have to read up on what can be done...

Yaay!

My first thought when I saw your photo was platinum gray. But then I thought there's no platinum gray on the 3'er. So I had to look up my 3'er brochure and saw tasman green.

Here is my old bus (E92 335D). Bought new in 2006.

Still pulls like a train and returns twice the mileage that my Jaguar gave me.

Voila.

I would have preferred Patrick's location, but as I don't happen to have a ridiculously wealthy sugar daddy, I had to make do with my driveway.

Nice! I was thinking about Tasman green, and almost went with it... Then saw a picture with some bad lighting, and got scared off into space gray. But this looks really good!

Here's mine with winter wheels and Blizzak LM-60 tires.

That almost looks like two different cars!

What a difference lighting makes...

PIX of my 2011 x5 35d

Not much a story. I've been lurking here in the diesel section since last fall. Learned alot, and y'all helped dispel some of my initial conerns about buying a current diesel. I had a 1999 VW TDI, but that was pretty low tech compared to modern power plants.

I'd been thinking about a 335d for myself, but would up with this X5 35d for my wife instead.

I started looking for a very basic, low-spec 35d, was thinking about ordering one, then I found this one in a local dealer's inventory.

I don't know all the codes, but it is Titanium Silver with Black Nevada leather. It has the sport activity package, 20" rims, running boards, roof rails and (as I like to say) front seated heats. I was told that it was ordered for a customer whose financing fell apart between order and delivery.

The Tasman Greeen is an interesting color. As you can see from the photos, the color changes hues depending on the angle of the light hitting the car.

I picked up a friend from the hospital today - as I was waiting in the crowded parking area a woman approached me. I thought for sure she was going to ask me to move out of her way but she instead said "Is your car grey or green?" I didn't expect that!

She then wanted to know the specific name of the color; when I told her Tasman Green is a relatively new color she said it was stunning.

That really made my day (that... and seeing my friend being discharged from the hospital).

335d joining in the FUN

Hey guys-got pics!

Finally got a chance to take some recent pics since returning from the Euro Trip, too many of those pics were focused on the action there rather than the car. The one in my sig was taken near the top of Jaufen Pass which was my favorite, I've included one taken at the Monaco GP start finish line and one from San Bernadino Pass. Since returning I've added a few embelishments to Abby and I still can't believe how great this car is, nice to see that there is quite a group of us in the DC-Balt metro area!

Now you can see what the M-Sport looks like. Some subtle chasis trim with the black plastic on the back lower rear, a subtle spoiler on the trunk, got the carbon trim inside, and of course the M badge on the steering wheel.

Addicted2Torque,

I love the look of the M Sport package, especially the subtle spoiler on the trunk lid. Great looking car.
