Here are a couple of pictures of my IB 328i Sportline during our recent ED.

Great color. Was down to the wire for me between this and sapphire black. If I had gotten luxury line I would have gotten this color or gray.

Just took delivery today! Just imagine how many bodies I can fit in there!

(I'll post real pictures when I get a chance. This was my wiseass reply to all my friends asking for a picture)

I'm trying to decide between this color and the mineral grey for an upcoming ED. I went to look at them in person and the blue was much better than I expected and the grey was worse (had kind of a purple hue when the sun hit it).

I plan on getting the sport line so the interior will be black or grey but if I could I would get saddle brown.

Same as you I was deciding between the two colors about 2 months ago. To me the Imperial Blue was very dark and in the bright sun it showed purple highlights. With my polarized sunglasses the IB looked Black, not so much when I took them off. I went for the Mineral Grey but whenever I see an IB F30 I wonder if I chose wisely.

For me it was between IB and PB. Honestly I am happy with the blue and find myself admiring blue cars more often now. I nearly passed on IB when I saw a really dirty one at a dealership and it looked really purple. So I guess I will just have to keep my car really clean to avoid that problem

Earlier, I posted a few, then realized that they had already been posted! Thanks to the OP for posting them. So here are a couple new ones, I'll try to add a few more.

Really love Imperial Blue, but how hard is it to keep clean honestly? Is it nightmare-ish like jet and metalic black? Deciding between this and Glacier Silver. My current Gray car can go forever without washing. I know IB won't be easy, but some feedback will be nice. Thanks

Very pretty color. We saw one at the Dealers and had a hard time deciding between that one and the Silver.

You do notice a dusting of haze and needs a wash every 2 wks. Worth it tho.

I ordered the Imperial Blue because Black/White/Gray is TOO common. At night it looks black with a Blue hue. Additionally, I liked the Imperial Blue better than the EB, and the Gray Leather interior was my favorite IMHO, and that color is Sport package specific.

That is exactly the combo I have high on my list. Add to it the wood trim, and you get a very nice luxurious look with a sporty flair.

The Gray/Black interior with the Red/Gloss Black trim with the sport red gauges and stitching is just..*****...

It's almost as bad as a black car. 2-3 weeks between washes. I use the Cal duster in between washes. No regrets on getting IB!!!

I have an IB 328i on order. Interior is saddle brown with anthracite trim. I really like that color combination.

Anyone have pics of their F31 Imperial Blue sport wagon to show off? I'm really interested to see how this looks, especially with a black/red stitch Sport Line interior.
