Carbon black is awesome, in the day it has a bluish tint, but at night looks black.

In my sig. I need to take more, those were right after I picked it up. So, duh, I only recently realized why its called Carbon Black when its really blue. Because it's the color of carbon paper (for those if us that remember what carbon paper is.)

Hi,

Awesome color, I agree. But the cleaning is a pain in the ass . Here is mine at Geneva's sunset.

My favorite black color- but it's black. Super high maintenance, if you're anal about keeping it clean like me, quite frustrating.

Some Carbon Black F10 pics (back lot of a dealer) that I thought really captured the dark blue in the bright sun. These are all of the same car. I believe that is Deep Sea Blue in the background of 2 pics.

Saw Carbon Black with Mocha Brown Nappa Leather interior today- it looks stunning. Combo available in 2014 models.

Just in case anyone is considering the same..I finally got around to changing the grey below the rear bumper to carbon black. I like the grey on other colors but not on the carbon black.
Here is a pic (sorry for the poor picture quality)..
