Maybe its just me but does that Blue strip on the inside look much better than the red of the sport line? especially when the sun hits it and in contrast with the aluminum that looks pretty nice. At first I thought the colored strips looked bad but now I am thinking otherwise.

I find it more appealing compared to the red too. I can see the red strip being more of a distraction compared to the blue. It probably is just personal preference, but the silver/blue go together well and I'm glad I chose that combo for my car. And if you got a matching exterior color on the car, even better looking!

There's no way in hell to get this color outside of the M Sport line, right?

Just checking. I'd be willing to pay double the $1450 paint price for this color. All the other colors seem boring by comparison.

Then you should wait for the individual paint options, which I believe run about $3k.

If the M6 wheel is anything like the F30 M Sport one, we are in for a serious treat. I am fairly sure they are identical, besides the stitching.

Why not just buy the M-Sport line? The price differential over sport is about $1,500. You'd actually save money over an Individual color request.

Thank you for this! I was going to change my color to white but after seeing these shots I am sticking with EBII. The pictures also give me a sense of what my 335i xDrive will look like with the non lowered suspension!
