Nice! Got mine from Bill Jacobs BMW. Did you p/u any extended service?
Looks like you will need the following soon - For starter

Rear spoiler
BMS N63tu Stage1
Weather Tech mats and trunk liner
Opti Coat
Window tint

Oh..
The blackout grill will look good too IMHO

Congrats. It's a beautiful car. I have a 550i on order and also went with individual leather and trim. Curious as to how long it took for your car to arrive from the time you ordered it.

Pretty much agree with all of that, in addition...

-Coding
-Color match front reflectors. Or get the smoke colored ones which look good on black.
-Consider getting rid of the xDrive badge on the trunk lid.

Hi guys!

I bought the clear plastic protector and after reading all the horror stories bought tire and rim insurance as well. It was painful but now I don't have to worry.

I ordered the car in August and it was in production at the end of September and I took delivery 3 weeks ago.

I am still learning about the car - I am having a blast just figuring out all it can do!

John

Best trim they have right now. I have seen it live in a F01 and I would order it in a heartbeat given a choice.

I've never seen Azurite Black on a 5 series in the metal. Pictures often do not get the exact hue. Is there a striking difference compared to Carbon Black?

Describing the difference between Carbon Black and Black Azurite Metallic is a bit difficult....and one reason why I posted my pictures in the first place :-). I scoured everywhere trying to find what BAM looked like "in the metal", but it is a relatively rare color choice and I couldn't find any examples at my local dealers.

I would say my impression of the color relative to the BMW apps/web site examples is that it more often looks like a dark black rather than deep blue. But in bright sunlight it has a deep blue "glow" that is very beautiful imho.

Relative to Carbon Black, I would say CB looks mostly black with some light blue highlights whereas BAM looks mostly a very dark blue that can look black and displays deep blue highlights in bright conditions. Clear as mud, I know.....if you guys want me to try to take different/better pictures of it I'm happy to do so - let me know what you need!

John
