We ordered it on July 28, delivered on September 26. We were originally looking at Imperial Blue/Saddle Brown on a luxury line because my wife won't do black interiors. She then drove a sport line and liked it better, and she had seen a 1 series in this color combo and liked it. I wasn't so concerned about the color, was just happy to get sport line and sport seats. But I'm starting to like it, especially the Everest Grey.
Liquid Blue was a priority 1 color (special order) in 2012 but is a regular metallic for 2013. I'm starting to see some in dealer inventories. We just didn't think we'd find one in sport with the grey and the options we wanted.
