Yeah when I bought it I thought there might be too much blue tint but it doesn't seem that way, the black come through more in the pics than in person though.

It's just a quick cell phone picture, taken earlier this evening when walking out of a store [see signature picture below], but it's all I have right now. You can see the special-order Shadowline Trim, though (along with my 35% tint). I promise, one of these days, I will take some real pictures.

Well from the looks of it even though it was dark the car looks awesome love the shadowline trim goes great with these cars.

Thanks! Had her since early December and already put on 2k miles even though I live in the center of Sf and prior to this car drove about 2k miles/year. Lol. I'll need to ease up on the trips to Napa and up the coast on 1.

Looks great emomoh!
'Cept for one other post (also poorly lit/no flash) I've not seen Silver Six here. I dig it.

The color variants really change up the car. I'm not normally into red ibut looks great on this year 6. Can't say I've seen a color I didn't really think looked great...

I used to live in SF/SF Bay Area-- you've got some of the best places to have a 6 in all the states!!!!! I miss that!!!!!!

ENJOY!!!!!

They will show up if you're in a dense urban area.

True, but the GPS needs to be set to "Perspective View" as well. Look under "Map Views."

Here are some pics of different convertible colors/configurations I saw at the Performance Center this weekend:

1. Carbon Black with Black Roof (M Sport and non-Full LEDs, I believe).

2. Mojave with Black Roof (non-M Sport + Full LEDs).

The test car I drove for my PCD was a Vermillion Red with Black Roof and Black Nappa interior + DAP + CWP + luxury Seats; no LEDs; not sure about IAS or ARS.

Really not liking carbon black with the black roof. The two different shades of black are really way off. That's my opinion though. The black roof looks much better with black sapphire.

I'm thinking that car was probably a PCD That has been sitting for a couple days. Couldn't keep straight the purpose of all of their lots. More new/fairly BMWs than I have seen in my entire life.

I think I'd probably go for black sapphire and skip the M Sport or, more likely, go a completely different color and get the M Sport. I don't think I could pass up the exhaust and M steering wheel now that I'm hooked. This weekend I really learned to appreciate the steering wheel compared to other Bimmers. There was a definite difference in feel between the non-M 650 convertible and my M coupe. The M Sport exhaust + convertible seems like too good of a combo if I wanted a convertible. Then I could fully appreciate the increasing size of my carbon footprint while in Sport mode
