Black Sapphire Metallic

While in the hunt for a new 750, came across one at Concord BMW in Black Sapphire Metallic... I was amazed... I thought I had read some forums here trashing this color, but man o'man, in person, it was crazy beautiful, my wife couldn't believe how gorgeous it was, we walked past it, went back to it, checked out a couple in the side lot, then back to the black sapphire, just needed to share, it was the first time seeing this color in person..

My cars black sapphire metallic and I love it. The paint does need extra love and care but you can't beat the shine and gloss when the paint is all polished up.

What's the extra care involved? It had a metallic flake to it (I was under the impression it was easier than a jet black to care for)... I seriously want to go back and stare at that car some more... gorgeous...

Well I can tell you that this paint is easier to maintain than a jet black paint job because I had a e92 in jet black but you still have to be careful when wiping the car down because BMW paint swirls very easily. Here's a picture of my car after a detail;

+100 on the color!!
Does take a bit of extra care to keep the paint swirl and hologram free. It is well worth the time. Good thing my wife's 335 vert is a light metallic color

I've had 3 cars in this color and no regrets, just make sure you get the shadow line trim with it. It's what makes the car.
