    Yes, though I'd prefer Sonoma Beige ... so perfectly two-toned... won't be able to find that combo though since nobody seems to be ordering that interior.

    Second choice is Mineral Grey on either Sakhir or Sonoma interiors.
    Third choice is Silverstone on Sakhir or Silverstone interiors.
    Fourth choice is Mineral White on Sakhir...

    I've thought about this too damn much. lol

    Meh. I've grown up, baby blue is not appealing to me. lol
    Tanzanite Blue would be a possibility, but that's too rare to be able to easily score one on the secondhand market. Damn I wish Estoril was offered on the M cars...

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    The brakes in that pic are the yellow BMW Performance calipers for the 1/3 series of the E82/E9x era. I don't have those calipers anymore - I have Wilwood Forged Superlite calipers now, all around. The BMW Perf kit was only for the front, and the rears were stock calipers, so it didn't quite look right from the side.

    Very true. The wilwood kit looks good. Definitely my choice as well though I'd get the aero6 myself since I can get a fantastic price on that locally.

    You guys can't get individual colours? I'm sure if you talked to your dealer, maybe even do a euro delivery you could get it. Definitely worth it if possible!

    Santorini blue for me. Or Mora metallic. Just beautiful.

    Provisional plates. Have to use them for 3 years. Essentially a stage in earning my full license. While you're on your p plates you can't drive cars with more than 125 kW or over 100 kph. Just Australian things.

    Silverstone is beautiful. Of all the factory m colours at the moment, that sakhir orange and yas marina blue are my favourite.

    But $5000 USD... just for a color that's not standard. That is asinine... and that's only assuming you can afford the buy the car new to begin with!
    New is out of the question at this point...

    It's a culture thing I guess. BMWs are taxis and police cars in Europe, here in the States they're marketed as mid-high end luxury autos. So naturally BMW dealers Stateside have outrageous prices for certain things.

    The sad part is, while our vehicles are better equipped, they're still cheaper than in Europe. lol
