Carbon black vs sapphire black.

Hows it going, wondering if you guys have any good pics of those colors on an x6, having a hard time deciding between those two. Also Ivory white interior vs oyster and what trim? Thanks appreciate it.

Mein Auto: X5 5.0
I have a sapphire X5, with m package so we could got the carbon black
We went with the sapphire because it has more flecks in the paint and actually is black, while carbon is blue-ish
It end up to be a personal choice, I could only decide after seeing them alive

Mein Auto: Fast
True, the sapphire is true black and the carbon has blue flecks and either looks black or dark, dark, blue depending on the light. I wanted Oyster/Black interior and was open on exterior, so took what the dealer had in stock without much thought. I was happily surprised to see the complexity of the carbon black and am VERY happy that I ended up with it vs. the Sapphire black, but it is ultimately personal choice. I agree, that you need to see them in person to appreciate the difference.
