Looks like it is just another addition, just a shade darker than space grey. I bet it will replace Space Grey in 2015

Excellent. Yes, I ordered from Jon as well. We were thinking about taking the train but I think I'll just do a one way rental through Enterprise. They have a facility a couple of miles away from the Dealership.
The ship is heading into the first set of locks in the canal right this moment.

I will also be going down to Santa Barbara from the SF Bay area to pick mine up, not until late September though. Was wondering if you somehow got a non-stop flight out of SFO or another bay area airport? It looks like you mostly need to fly into LAX first to get a reasonable price for the flight. Any info is appreciated. Congrats on your new F10!

Have you seen an example of mocha brown?

Are the foot wells black?

I saw a picture a few weeks ago (someone from this site posted a link, don't remember where I saw it exactly). It looks nice, kind of a rich dark brown, at least better (to me) than the 2013 cinnamon color. And white, gray or tan interiors are just not my thing - it's really subjective. I would much prefer black nappa, but BMW in their infinite wisdom decided not to offer that in the 2014 F10.

I don't remember if the foot wells are black or brown. I would guess black as the dash is black?

What do you think of a imperial blue with a black nappa interior and piano black trim?

Yes, the carpet is black with the mocha interior.

Very nice combination. Personally, I would break up the black with the anthracite wood trim to provide a little contrast on the dash and door panels, but the piano black will look nice.
I recommend heading over to a local dealer and browsing the different colors in sun and shade. Earlier in the day or late afternoon will allow you to see the sunny side and shady side. If they don't have the color in a new car, head over to the pre-owned area.

@Sonicendeavor: Thanks for the update. From your prior post, I was able to watch the Grand Venus pass through the locks. It is amazing how fast the vessel rises in the locks.

Looks like the vessel is at rest now and not moving.

Great! Yeah, I saw it stop in an odd place in the canal just before the entrance to the lake then restart 30 minutes later and make a hard left to get out of the shipping lanes, then anchor. Hopefully this is scheduled activity.

I just read a short article in Car and Driver dated 7/11/13 indicating that some 5 series LCI's have already arrived at the Dealerships. Same thing on Autoweek.

I saw that but if there is still a Monroney hold for the window sticker how can they be anything but demos?

Agreed. I was only addressing the question of whether the ships arriving this week had the first batch of LCI's. I touched base with Jon this morning and he indicated that the EPA hold will be cleared in time for the August launch.

Actually, that is probably a good thing that cars are arriving early. Let a few hundred/thousand go through production so they figure out the slight differences with our cars. I am still a bit nervous about getting the first run on the 2014s. Hopefully we get free software updates as bugs are discovered in the new Navigation system and iDrive.

I also noticed that the vessel with my car has remained anchored for a day now. Hopefully this is planned and not an issue with the ship.

Yeah, something's up with our ship. The AIS transponder hasn't sent a signal out since last night. Best case, the transponder died and the ship is already out in the Pacific ocean. Worst case, bubble bubble there are 6400 cars at the bottom of the Panama canal. (Kidding).
I'm guessing either mechanical problems or its been boarded by international inspectors looking for Soviet era Mig parts.
Anyone have any other guesses (the more humorous, the better)

So to clarify, does August launch mean 8/1? My ship gets to the VDC tomorrow and I would expect two days before it is ready to ship (no dealer installed options).

Which means it should be ready to ship either 7/25 or 7/28. If I only have to wait another 5 days (8/1 is a Friday) that wouldn't be too bad.

Thanks for the info sonic....

Not sure about the official launch date. You may want to ask your Dealer about when they can release the car. Jon just said the EPA hold would be cleared by the time mine is ready for delivery. August 2nd ship arrival, one day to unload the ship, hopefully 3 days to get through the VDC provided there's no shipping damage that requires body work or paint shop, 1-2 days waiting for a car carrier, one day transport to the Dealer (actually 1 hour since my Dealer is very close to the port), two days for Dealer prep, would put delivery for mine around 8/10.

If the ship sinks, then I think I might change to the 535d. Sounds like it may be faster than the 535i and with better fuel economy.

Several thousand. I've heard 5-8000 depending on the size of the cargo. large trucks and heavy equipment will take more space and weighs more than a passenger auto.

Here's a link to wallenius, one of the major car carriers, for more info --> http://www.walleniuslines.com/Fleet/Fleet-List1/

Blake, have you seen any performance specs for the US 535D? I am contemplating changing my order(if possible) from a 535I to 535D. The higher torque and therefore more usable everyday power/performance in addition to the greater fuel economy that I've read about the Euro spec 530D makes a good case for the US 535D. The N55 is a sweet engine, really curious if the diesel is as fun to drive(or more so).
