Mein Auto: I'm still dreaming....
Yes, I am. Although not a special order color, what you guys think of a white exterior with a vermillion red interior?

Were I to order a car, I would like the individual champagne full merino interior with a possible dark blue exterior.

Btw, I really like this: http://www.6post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=748041
For many of my cars, I would tend to go toward light beige interiors, versus grays or black. My first 3-series was Black Sapphire/Sand (beige). Then, after I saw a 5-series with Cinnamon interior, I knew that's what my next car would look like. That was another 3-series (E90), another Black Sapphire with "Terra" interior, which is basically Cinnamon on the 5-series. Then I stuck with Blk Sapp/Cinnamon on my 535i. I honestly can't afford the full Individual package with the custom leather interior, so at this EARLY point, I'm thinking of going with Oyster/Black which I shied away from on my current F10. I think that looks great with Imperial Blue or Citrin Black. Then again, Cinnamon is so easy to take care of, that would look good with either color as well. Might want to do a total change-up though, we'll see as the time gets closer. Oh, then there's Deep Sea Blue ---- what to do?

Ha; true. Sorry about that!

Here's one in Azurite: http://www.richmondbmwmidlothian.com...8924065248.htm

Nice!

I'm still hoping that the LCI facelift also comes with a choice of other wheels. I'm just not a fan of putting an M-package on a non-M vehicle so the only choice left to get some decent wheels from the factory is the individual composition. The 18" stock-wheels on the 550i just don't cut it for me - and the accessory-wheels cost as much as the individual composition. In that case, I gladly opt for that.

But I will be in the market for MY15 so a lot can and will chnage 'til then. Hey, perhaps even a leather-dash..

I love what the Sport Packs do for looks, but a very admirable sentiment of yours. M and AMG used to mean something!

Side note: Still don't understand why the 850CSi wasn't an M, with it's M engine.

Wow -that's some formulation. I'd still like to see a sample in person. I recently went to the DC Auto Show thinking maybe I'd see an Individual Citrin like the pics from that other auto show posted above. No luck. But I did see a Frozen White 7 series, very interesting. Someone joked with the female rep that the factory must have forgotten to paint the car before it left the factory, haha. I have to say though, I've been noticing Imperial Blue more lately. I looked at that briefly before getting my 3rd Black Sapphire. IB is a very interesting color, especially in the sun, lots of depth. There was an IB 3-series at the show.

Yup, every color! But even in person you have to catch it at just the right angle; which makes it that much more interesting.
