I wanted a white 330ci with tannin red so bad that I saved up the money for one and now I can't get one (brand new). Now I am having a hard time with this decision of what to order. I wish I could still get what I really want.

Well, the good news is that it can be ordered as a 'special order' item. The really bad news is that it will cost you $4,000 to pull it off (ouch).:yikes: :yikes:

We can only hope the BMW AG will return it to the lineup one day soon and offer it to those of us who really dig it. It definitely has accumulated quite a cult following, but it will never compete against black, sand or gray because it's just too liberal.

Here's a pretty accurate picture that I hope won't tease you too much.

sorry guys that tannin red made my laptop overheat and it shut down for a while. I need to fix the little fan in it. That alpine white with tannin is enought to make me go out and make the extra doe ray me. I am going to save that pic to my desktop. Got any more? Thank you for keeping hope alive!

I was wondering why there was no moonroof. I want a 330ci do you think my dealer would get it for me ith tannin red or is that a pita for all involved.
That's because it's a 330Cic with the optional hardtop...

I imagine that getting Tanin now would be a major PITA...

:(

so Jon,
Being that the tannin red is out what would you recomend that would carry the same impact.Jet black with natural? What are your thoughts on ordering the pp options ala cart with no myrtle wood so I get titanium trim. I saw the pic of the steel gray like that. What did it look like in person? Did you like it? Did it all blend nicely?

Why not order leatherette in any color and then get aftermarket leather? I think you can get aftermarket leather that is better quality than BMW leather.

I thought about that but then they would have to do they door panels and other panels too. I also wouldn't know who to take it to. I know there alot of people that can do interiors but how do I know who to trust with my car. They would probably scrach it or do a lousy job or something. From my experience with other things like houses and boats and decks and furniture it just seems like you can't get excellent results unless you do it yourself. I set very high standards and am very often disappointed.
