Haha that's right.. I totally missed that was at Mountain View. I am still deciding on which dealer to go with since I decided to wait for the November production. One dealer told me that they are only accepting offers at MSRP for the November builds, but are giving pretty good discounts on the older nav builds. I'm sure that will change soon.

Looks like the kind of colour my Grandad would have bought

Our new Liquid Blue/Everest Grey Sport Line delivered last week. While my wife picked the color (this is her car), I must say the combo looks pretty good, especially in sunlight.

Looks great! Congratulations! Did you order it, or was it part of the dealer's inventory?

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.

I was wondering about that. Almost all of the Liquid Blue cars I've seen in dealer inventory are "no line" models with beige interior; a combo so feminine that looking at it almost makes me lactate.

I'm considering a similar configuration, and LB over Everest Grey definitely seems the way to go! If you ever see another LB/EG sport line in the Bay Area, it might just be me!

Mountain View (where we got ours) actually shows a LB/Everest 328i sport line in their inventory on the website now, not sure if it's really there or on order, might want to check. Our CA was Robert LaBouff and he did a great job throughout the process. He actually helped us decide by going all over their storage garage to show us a car with the Everest interior. Just tell him his last LB/EG customer sent you

Some Liquid Blue from the UK

I've just ordered a Liquid Blue 320d Efficient Dynamics. Looking around the various reviews one of the BMW press cars seems to have circulated all the usual magazines and is an almost exact match to what I've ordered so I've pulled together an album of some of the photos.

https://www.icloud.com/photostream/#A45oqs3qGxuwJF

Hopefully the link will work. Its supposed to be a public album I can't post pics directly from the iPad if anyone else can download and embed, feel free.

ptt 127! Looks great!
I am waiting my 320D sport line liquid blue

I suppose those are 18" wheels, right!?
I am still wondering if i should order 18" as well. Mine comes with 17" double spoke
Mine comes with adaptive suspension so it is lowered for 10mm so it will be better ride than I was order normal suspension and 18"
18" looks great on yours
downside 18" are more expensive and increase fuel consumption

any thoughts on that!?

Post some more pictures of Liquid Blue, you guys.

I'm stuck between ordering Alpine White or Liquid Blue. I like Liquid Blue because it's got some color to it. Some pizzaz. Plus, it's different. But I'm afraid it might be too different, at the same time.

I was debating between Sapphire Black and Liquid Blue. Yesterday I was dead set on getting black, but the more I see the pics of Liquid Blue, the more I think the car will stand out in the sea of white and black cars that dominate the road.

Liquid Blue it is (for now), but I really want to see more pictures before I finalize my order.

You'll regret not getting the color you really want. The fact that there's
a lot of black f30 will just remind you of what color you should have gotten.
It happened to me once and never again.

It ultimately comes down to personal preference. I had an AW that I just turned in and although I like darker colors I think I would prefer darker colors on larger cars such as 5 or 7 series respectfully. Also believe the lighter colors make F30 lines really standout. Can't wait to pick up my liquid blue 335 this week

Maximus 850csi's sport line looks fabulous! As I've said before, I've not seen a bad looking F30 in ANY color.
