Talking Tanzanite 440ix Gran Coupe + Ind leather & trim - fully loaded.

It's been a long wait but totally worth it. This is the perfect car for me.

Individual tanzanite blue:


Individual golden brown merino leather + individual red sycamore trim:

Great combo, great looking car! Mine is en route after its transatlantic cruise...Tanzanite & Ivory 2018 440i. Should be at the dealership on Friday. I had never seen this color in person so I was a bit worried that i wouldn't like it...but as everyone has said, its amazing in person.

I would have opted for M Sport Brakes too. Or you plan to get the M Performance Ones? With yellow calipers

I didnt get the track pack because I wanted the active cruise control. Lots of single lanes around here and I'm stuck behind other cars a lot so active cruise control gets a lot of use.

Also after 1000 miles there was almost zero brake dust on the wheels and I've heard that the M Brakes can have an annoying squeal. The M brakes dont brake any better, just resist fade better which is only useful on a track.

Maybe I'll paint the calipers gold.

I coudn't be happier with the color. Hopefully, like I did, you first see it on a sunny day.

Great looking machine you got there.
Any future plans for it (modding wise)?

Right now it feels perfect in every way. Maybe I'll get an itch later but I'm still basking in the glow of this ultimate driving machine.

Maybe lowering it would be the most bang for the buck but I'm thinking I should wait for the snow before deciding on that.

It's not looking that bad being an awd, i'm also waiting for a 440xi GC. Initially went with Tanzanite Blue, but then changed to San Marino. Hoping to get her before the end of the month, though i have my doubts.
How do you feel about MPPSK? That's the mod i want most on mine. Then i'm thinking some H&R springs and some wheel spacers. Nothing too aggressive, the roads are are far from best.

Once again, enjoy your ride. Looks gorgeous.

San Marino is the only color I like more than Tanzanite Blue, it should look incredible.

The MPPSK is totally wild. In comfort mode she is quiet and refined, flick her into sport mode and she is the most obnoxious car I have ever driven.

I'm pretty certain the cops around here are trying to figure out who it is making all the spits and pops echoing through the hills. There has been a dramatic increase in patrols and speed traps on my daily route.

I highly recommend the MPPSK.

My phone & radar detector are now in place. I will eventually do a better cabling job for the radar but the phone works great in this position.

Nothing suds up like Mr Pink. I actually just ordered a 2nd chem bros bucket yesterday as I have been using just a single bucket and this car deserves a 2 bucket method.

Definitely needs the two bucket method.

I got a pressure washer with foam cannon attachment a few months back, suds galore! Can't recommend a foam cannon enough, really helps loosen up that layer of dust off the paint before taking the mitt to it.

Agreed, I use a Sun Joe SPX 3001 which is just over 2000psi on electric. The cannon I use is a chemical brothers one designed for electrics.
