Yup, I think we get that...my bad, when I mentioned Im swapping for carbon instead of getting carbon aluminum, I think that confused things.

I was hoping that the new ORANGE color would have been available with the
M Sport Package, since it wasn't I was set on the Storil Blue II, but when I saw the Snapper Blue at Geneva Auto show that's when I decided to go for that color. I will be getting the Midnight Blue Dakota leather interior.
be aware that the bright LED lights at the auto shows always adds a tint of blue. if you take pictures @ the NYIAS please share.

Anyone have any info about the real suspension changes if any yet?

Supposedly the suspension was already refreshed for MY 2016+ and was not publicly announced. Wondering if this is just making those existing changes official.

I asked some of the same questions on another thread... someone responded that the part numbers changed 17 to 18 is indicative of the 18 having it's own changes. I can't verify myself, waiting on some car rag reviews to see if they comment.

Looks stunning. I thought it looked much more like Long Beach Blue, not Atlantis Blue. They had a X6 M50i in Long Beach Blue at my local dealership, alongside a colour sample of the Snapper Rocks and the two were almost identical.

I just ordered a 440i convertible in Snapper Rocks, but with Coral Red seats. Bright combo, but in the online configurator Snapper + Coral Red actually looks better than Estoril Blue + Coral Red, and that is a combo that goes (although not everyone likes it!)

I've order the GC in Snapper Rocks Blue with the Midnight Blue Dakota.
Your combo will look amazing. I currently have MG with Coral Red. Red is just an amazing interior color.
Good luck and share pictures once you get your car.

Will do, would love to see yours too. I considered the midnight blue for a while but decided against it because I haven't seen the midnight blue Dakota in person.

I currently have a white Z4 with coral red leather. I held the colour sample against that and it seemed to go really well. I also added the new trim, carbon aluminium which looked stunning in the configurator. It was between that and the aluminium hexagon

Some more in-the-metal SRB pics, taken at my local dealers last weekend. To me it's more blue and less teal/turquoise than some other pictures make it look. Looks stunning IMO.

Color looks great. I've been waiting to see the color out in the sun and I'm now more sure about my order of a GC with SRB & Midnight Blue Dakota.
Thanks for posting the pictures!!

Thanks!!

I keep flip flopping on the Midnight interior as it looks as though the color does not extend to the under-dash/glove area as it does on other colors. Example in image below for what I mean.



It may not matter to you at all, but it makes me scratch my head.

I saw Midnight Blue in the new 540i and it looks great. I currently have Coral Red on my current F36 the extended red on the dashboard does look good, the Midnight Blue is dark enough that looks black under the shade.

On my phone the leather under the dash actually looks a bit more like midnight blue as wel, it could just be your monitor and the shade/lighting. I wouldn't rely on it though, check with the dealer
