Talking Official F30 3 Series Black Sapphire Photo Thread

The Official Bimmerfest F30 3 Series Black Sapphire Photo Thread


This thread can serve as a repository for pictures of black F30's. Black is notoriously hard to photograph but i will be doing my damndest when my sport line shows up in another 3-4 weeks.

Photos I took of mine;





















Ones mod pasted in! :P

F30 Black Sapphire Sport Line - Photo credit CFL335i
BMW F30 3 series Black Sapphire
F30 BMW 3 series in Black Sapphire
Black Sapphire F30 BMW 3 series
F30 Black Sapphire 3 series

The good news is fall colors coming soon and black looks so damn good surrounded by that fall foliage.

Post your Black Sapphire F30 pictures. Black goes with everything baby!

One thing I have to agree on that someone posted awhile back is there are a lot more nooks and cranes to deal with on the F30 than on other models no matter black,white or green it takes longer to wash and dry. Good luck
cheers

Glad you posted. Can I make this the "official" thread? I didn't get to all of the colors yet, including black.

Sure, my vehicle will hopefully be showing up in another 3-4 weeks. If someone else has pictures I don't mind having those moved to the top of the thread either.

Okay, updated with my pics now. I can put interior shots on here too but might be bending the rules a bit.

Great pics! Post up the interior shots but keep them out of the first post, sound reasonable? We really need to get interiors threads going as well

Sounds reasonable to me, will do! I have some great pics of the Everest Gray interior so if you say the word I will start a thread for that interior color choice.

Car looks phenomenal....my only gripe is the placement of the X-Drive badge. Seems like it would look better on the side of the car or lower on the trunklid somewhere.

I agree... I noticed it right away, I think that the fender badges that they've done in previous years actually look better. I might possibly remove it.

Here's a few more, mods, I can't add these to the 1st post, but it looks like I can't edit that (too old?) so if I can edit I will add these at the top of the 1st post.

Looks good, very shiny. I like the idea of updating the photos with Fall foliage. I'm going to do that myself over in the MG thread.

Look, I don't mind your perfectly polished and Camera+ altered Sapphire Black photos. If you intend to wash her 365 days a year you're good to go.

Oh, and go get the painted reflectors already. Sheesh.

My gift to you. A lot more badass than the sig pic you have now, more befitting a Black Sapphirer (or whatever you call yourselves).

Awfully chivalrous of you BJ, as long as I don't have to kiss you to make up.
