Re: #1 - you have a very sharp eye. You can see a tiny reflection of another well-known landmark reflected in the car windows.

Want to take another guess at the color? I told you it is a puzzler...
It is space gray and I think the reflection is of this bridge sorry don't remember the name probably golden gate....

Ch-ch-changes!

Here is the 335devil, the terror of the Inland Empire. This is my daily driver (120 mile r/t) and I get 34mpg doing 80 down the freeway. It doesn't get any better than that! LeMans Blue, M Sport, Premium, and Comfort Access packages, black Dakota interior, dark walnut trim, and more options...fully loaded! I am looking at upgrading the tailights to Umnitza LED's. Also, for those of you doing your taxes, I got an $900.00 credit because the 335d is considered an "Advanced Lean Burn Vehicle," which was a nice surprise. This is my first diesel, and I totally love it--it handles like a sports car.

Very Nice!!!

I don't know how to express myself, I put in an order here in Toronto 10 days ago a 2011 335d alpine white with saddle brown int m sport, premium, nav/idrive, glacier silver carbon fiber trim and just got the production number, car will be built in mid April, I'm probably looking at end of May delievery if all goes well. The wait is killing me..........

I've always driven diesels, I ended up with a VW GTI 2010 because its sporty, prior to this I've been trying to make my VW TDI's sport diesels I've been able to accomplish a lot but OEM is different so this time I'm going all out........the GTI was not a good experience its much better than ordinary gas cars but low end torque is not there.......I don't care about high hp hight rpm performing cars coz in real world it doesn't matter.....our diesels low end power plus fuel economy is awesome. Please pray I get my ultra sport diesel sedan soon.........

Will post pics as soon as I know its at the dealership!!!!!!!

Plenty of torque!

No worries, it has 425 pound-feet of torque--very quick off the line and trust me, it really handles like a sports car.

Is this car Montego Blue or Deep Sea Blue? I am interested in seeing pics of both of these colors. Trying to decide. Thanks.

It looks like Montego, but then again I've never seen deep sea blue. I would think the deep sea blue would be darker.

I have Montego Blue and the car is a very nice deep shade of blue in the shade and on overcast days. In sun light the paint gets lighter looking a bit teal at times and even purple in some angles. Check out the pics below. My car just washed on different days.

Le Mans Blue didn't replace Montego Blue. They are both still available, though the Le Mans Blue is only available with the M-Sport package.

Sorry I was speaking of Canada should've mentioned that, here we just have Le Mans blue with M pkg and Sea blue, just 2 options for 2011. 2010 had Montego blue.

If anyone has any pictures of Tasman Green in the bright sunlight, please post them. I have found a nice CPO Tasman Green 335d but it is about 3 hours away and I can't make the trip right now. Tempted to put down a deposit until I can make the trip. Would appreciate any pictures you can send me (rmorinuncATgmail.com). I'm headed up the road tomorrow to look at a TG 535 at a dealer in Mechanicsburg, PA. They told me that TG is supposed to be a Priority 1 color (sold car) but they usually order 1 or 2 to have on the lot. The CA said you either like it or you don't, it is very unusual color. Some see it as gray, some as blue-gray, other do see it as a green-gray. I've scoured the internet and have seen quite a few pictures and I see it as more of a gray-blue with a hint of green. I am hoping I will like it as it would be nice to have a color that you don't see coming and going every day (like my AW Z4).

That's as green as it gets, in full sunlight or in artificial lighting. Most of the time though the car looks grey - especially when it is overcast or getting dark. It does have a blueish tint and some people are certain it is a blue car.

Tasman Green is slightly odd but its great if you like having something different than most everyone else.

My interior is grey, which I think is a nice contrast to the darker exterior.

When MotorWeek reviewed the 335d they had a Tasman Green one. It might be worth taking a look at that video clip to see the car in action in different lighting.
