Nice. Re-assures me that I made the right color choice. Have a mineral grey 335i M sport coming in. I'll make sure to contribute some photos once I get my hands on it.

Anyone have a picture or seen mineral grey with grey interior? On the BMW site it looks good but it may be too much grey. I now have grey with black interior and I don't want to get the exact same combo.

Greetings, Mineral Grey Nation.

My car is on the water, won't be able to post photos until next week, but this video of a Luxury line is my car to a tee, right down the NJ license plates, albeit with a black interior (mine will be saddle). Great view of MG in action.

Enjoy.

Interesting, it is not as dark as I anticipated.

It could be the best grey BMW has ever released. Significantly blacker and darker than Space Grey, no purple hue like Sparkling Graphite, it's really dramatic at night, gets really deep and brightens up nicely in direct sunlight.

I pulled my Space Grey E90 up nose-to-nose against a Mineral Grey F30 as I was making my final color selection and was really impressed by how different it was. The darker deep shades really make the clear gloss coat pop too, and it makes all those body lines and curves accentuate with the shadows (see photo above).

I just ordered a 335xi luxury in mineral gray with saddle interior. No production date yet though. Wish I could've gotten an M-sport exterior with the luxury interior. I'll post pics when it comes in.

Some early shots of my Mineral Grey L328i. I'll get some better shots shortly. The color is amazingly deep and vibrant, very glad I chose it. First one I've seen with a Saddle Brown leather interior too.

Congratulations on your new ride.....it looks unbelievably amazing....the saddle brown interior gives a look that's right up there with the Bentley's and Ferrari's ! I have the exact same configuration but with the 335i.

What's been your experience with the luxury line ? Been hearing a lot of feedback regarding the sportsline but none regarding the luxury line . Did you notice any handling difference between the two , assuming you drove the sportsline before ; ) ?

Thanks. I always liked the way the Porsche's looked with the gunmetal exterior and the saddle interior, and my hunch was correct as it's really good looking in the F30. Wish they didn't do the black seatbacks though, that's a bit of a disconnect.

(Regarding the handling difference, this is the Official Color thread so I'll respond to you in the 335i vs. 328i thread so we can keep on topic.)

I love the chrome window trim on the luxury line. Bums me out it's not an option on the sports line

He does not have a Sport line, so he had no silver bars to begin with.

Just got my F30 last week and had it tinted on Monday.

I think a relatively light 35% tint goes great with the Mineral Gray!

Everyone meet Buzz. The 2014 320xi SA. He may be dark on the outside, but he's very light on the inside and all he wants is to be accepted by the 328's and 330's.
