WANTED: Pics of F30 w/ ZSL in Imperial Blue

If anyone has gotten ZSL on Imperial Blue, please snap a few pics in the sun and share. I'm really interested to see Imp Bl on a 3er in the wild... i don't fully trust the marketing shots I've seen, nor does the BYO app on the website do it justice.

None of my local dealers have one in IB yet.

Thank you!

Saw a Imp Blu in the dealer's lot today, albeit not in the sun & not Sports Line. Still want a photo?

Thanks, Gary. Don't go out of your way, but if you happen to snag one in full sunlight that would be awesome.

Seriously, thanks!

I'd like to see this blue also. I'm getting the imperial blue and hoping it is a nice blue. I love my montego blue, but I won't be able to get anything like that (not going with estoril blue on the M sport)

Imp Blu is a tough color to capture, here in mostly sunny skies that my wife was gracious to try, contrasted with a black dog, sky reflection & offset with Mineral Gray:

Was browsing around dealers' websites, I'm kind of surprised to see some dealers like Richmond were able to get in a few extra ones in addition to the launch-spec vehicles. Heck, they've got a sweet 328i Sport Line with Sport Auto I'd love to test if it weren't so far away.

Here's the Imperial Blue in Modern Line with Sattlebraun interior.

i dont understand why modern and luxury cars require premium but delaers arent ordering xenons with them, seems so dumb. If your getting ZPP, xenons are a no brainer.

Keeps the MSRP down. Typical American buyers place more emphasis on easily-discernable items like sat nav, rear parking camera, Bluetooth, Seat heating, etc....

It'll be discernable as soon as the neighbors comment on it. It really cheapens the car on the outside, making it look like a stripper model.

I guess some folks have nosy neighbours.......I mean, I agree that the bi-xenons are an important option, but not everyone sees it that way.

Anyone who thinks about spending $50k on a car will see it that way. It's not a chevy cobalt.
