I came across the Dakar Yellow car in a video from Farland, sent them an email asking if they wanted to sell it, they said yes and I bought it. I flew to Denver and drove it back to the PNW.
would you know if CW bmw still has that DV F31? didn't see it on their site so im guessing someone grabbed it.

It sold months ago - was watching the listing out of curiosity, as they were asking quite a premium. Beautiful color - hope the buyer owns a detail shop, as that heavily oxidized paint is going to be a chore to refresh. My experience with individual colors is that BMW factory puts the paint on thin...you get one shot to correct and then you'd better spend top dollar on a long term ceramic to seal it in.

Few shots out in the wild from the Indy races at Road America last weekend - the F31 was turning heads like crazy. People that get it, get it.

Yesterday I texted the salesman who was giving the run around he said they sold it as it. Even after I got mine I still search F31's on the regular looking for other BMW Individual cars. That car's been off BMWUSA and Cargurus websites for about a month.

It was so disappointing the see the paintwork of the Daytona Violet one. Daytona and Techno Violet are one of my favorite BMW colors.

Really makes me miss the races. Hopefully 2021 will be better. I haven't had the opportunity to take the F31 to COTA yet but here's a shot of my old E46 at the F1 event 2013.

My Dad had a Techno Violet E36 convertible and my Mum got a Techno Violet 318ti - I've sometimes looked to pick one up… love that colour. I understand there is an issue with the formula that BMW no longer offer it.

It's a great purple. I like purple silk but it's no where near Techno!

What does the Touring word mean here? And are those bars on top of most of your F31s a BMW part? I really like the look of the wagon here with the bars on top and I'm sure they would come in handy.

Touring =wagon. For e90 e60 f30 generations they have model designation ending in 1, so e91 e61 f31.

Which bars. crossbars seen in pics above are not Bmw, the fore and aft rails are standard on tourings.

And yes, they are handy. I moved my dining table and many other large items (book cases, etc) to my new house a year ago on top of the f31 via the factory crossbars.

Okay, thanks. I'm picking up a new to me 17 328d Wagon tomorrow. I'm probably going to want to add those crossbars I see in some pics.

Those rims (on the car) have to be tough to clean. Never seen a web style like that before.

They’re rotiforms. Very classic Group B/ rally feel to them. I like but also wouldn’t want to clean.
Had some 20 spoke tsws on my DSM decades ago and have had that version of wheel cleaning fun already.

Ordered a BMW cargo box and roof bars. Called my dealer and got 20% off so pulled the trigger. Can't get the Thule box anywhere right now. Feel more relaxed about our trip now. Box Should be in by Wednesday.

Congrats.

Just remember which set of keys to bring on the road trip. (box vs bars).

On the Thule box, you can't remove the key unless it's locked. Guessing the BMW box is similar. Nice design point.
