I was browsing the BMW Germany car configurator. Estoril Blue, Velvet Blue and Carbonblack can be ordered now :) (Not through Individual anymore)

Yup, saw it in person a few times. Looks great to me, but other hate it understandably. It does have a green to it, which I find great. Something to set it off from all of the factory yellow cars on the road today. I won't even start on the Cavalier's and Sunfire's...*shiver*

I think Phoenix Yellow looks great under bright lights or in bright sunlight but on an overcast day it doesn’t come off right. Most of the photos have high level of lighting making the color look better than many natural settings. It’s more of a ‘show car’ color than a real street car color in my opinon. Unless you only take your car out on sunny days while it’s sparkling clean :)

Where on the BME DE site?

Alex, I ordered a 325i in Velvet Blue metallic mid Feb. Est. production date is 4/26. I estimate a late May delivery but would love to see something before then. I've been trying to find a decent pic of a 3er in this color with no luck. So far only the partial shot of the 5 you posted a while back. Where on the BMW Germany site did you find the new paints or "clubsport" option? I went there and could only find the "normal" colors plus tourmaline under the 3 series... I finally gave up on Arizona Sun after almost two months of e-mail and calls and settled on Velvet Blue metallic. I still can't understand however, why Arizona Sun is still on the Individual configurator...

Is black sapphire metallic available in the states? I just bought mine in that color through the military sales program in Germany. It's beautiful!

Go to the BMW.de site. Choose Car configurator and wait the applet to load. Choose 3 series coupe, choose model (325 or 330). Click on next and you'll see the color options. Move the cursor over to the paint options.

Will pics of a velvet blue M3 do for now?
