I'm not picking the car up till Saturday but I took a few when I went over to see it just after it had arrived at the dealership. As soon as I get it home on Saturday I'll get lots more

Thanks Rjberry,

Also can you take "true" pictures - i.e. don't play with any post-processing/effects. Take them rain or shine. I want to see what is really looks like. That would really help me. I'm trying to decide AW, EBII or Tanz...

Will do. I'll take as many as I can and then upload as many as I can get away with

Although F30s are still scarce on the roads here, the ones I have seen have been 3 AW, 1 Mineral Grey and 1 Melbourne Red. Now the M Sport is out I expect the EBII count to go up too. The Tanzanite will hopefully remain that bit more exclusive

Just a couple of photos for now whilst the sun briefly appeared.

Interestingly there was a AW and EBII F30 at the dealership and the Tanzanite got the attention. The colour is incredible and looks gorgeous when you see it.

Thanks rjberry,

That does look good! Reminds me of my old Orient Blue e46, but maybe a bit more blue. I told the dealer to give me a shout when they get a EBII in so I can see that one in person. In the shade, does Tanz look like black or can you still tell its actually blue?

Enjoy the ride!

I Googled Orient Blue and it does look similar. In the shade it still looks blue, hopefully the other photos I put up in my other thread showed what the colour is like in cloudy conditions. If the sun comes out again I'll see if I can find some shade to take more photos

We had a bit of rain overnight so I've added a few of the car this morning.
