Finally something better than Austin Yellow. I like how sculpted the rear of the car looks. Still not completely sold like I was on the E92

Really loving this Black Sapphire. I wonder how it will look in high-quality photos, or even in person.

I've always loved black cars, black tends to make cars looks sleeker and sometimes smaller. I love how accentuated the CSL-style trunk looks in black, and how sexy and sporty it looks overall. Until I see other colors, I think this looks way better than Austin Yellow (which I somewhat like) and Yas Marina Blue. To me this color makes those rear fender flares look more pronounced, and overall the car looks lower and more muscular.

Definitely would look better if it had lighter colored wheels... It's almost to the point of being "murdered out."

I guess this confirms that the black wheel option is some black with gunmetal. Was hoping for all black but maybe they'll introduce that option in the future too.

Not fan of wheel. There is too much contrast between Shiny black and shiny silver.
Otherwise, car looks great in black.
