She's a beaut! How do you like the parking package? It's the only one I don't have, I've been missing having a backup cam.

18" wheels for Sport Line. They look sick!

I don't have parking package, just the cameras.

Looks great. I always thought IB would not look good on a sports-line. You have made me realize I was wrong

Congrats!

My wife and I had trouble deciding between IB and AW, but white finally won our hearts. Looks great! Congratulations, OP... enjoy your 6 cylinders of fury!

If the IB came with a saddle Interior on the sport package I would be all over it! My favorite combo.

... BUT ... maybe the next car.

Still, the BMW configirator does not do any of these colors justice. The IB, Red and Estoril are stunning in real life.

+1 on dark paint, light interiors & sport

Had Montego Blue on Tan (forgot name, leather) interior - loved it. MBZ does black on beige and even off white, looks great IMO

Also not thrilled M Sport ditches the Adaptive (radar) Cruise. I'd be happy if for a $500-$750 bump one could "unlock the locks" and get a little more creative on the special order trim (or more, just offer it). I'm sure as a sheik it's possible but I think the three lines is a barrier mostly to the "perfect" car...

The Imperial Blue can be had with the Everest Gray interior (Sport Package specific) that is a really nice combo. The Gray has black stitching and the black doors and floors for a real nice contrast similar to the Saddle/Black interior. The Gray interior seems pretty rare as I have only seen one. The Imperial Blue IS a stunning color, followed closely by the IB

Wrt color decisions... It was the hardest one to make. We did like IB, but previous 335 was Monaco Blue, which is very similar color. However, no other color won our hearts, so we went with IB, and my wife likes it.

My E60 was Monaco Blue and we absolutely loved it. I wish the F10 M sport was available in Imperial. Your combo is among my favorites and in the "running" when we order next month.

OOPS, I mean I REALLY like IB (Imperial Blue) followed closely by EB (Estoral Blue)! Anyways, just any Blues will do!

+1 Monaco was gorgeous. I like the current dark blue (Imperial) but have a soft spot for Monaco...

Hah, looks more like bottle holders to me What's the average mpg you managed to get in Eco Pro mode and is there a big difference in consumption compared to normal or sport mode?
