There's a black ruby that some e9xers we individual ordering ... I wish they had that too ... Would've gone great with SO interior. I'd probably be going for the BSM but I have a Jerez e9x

Small video I've made with the cell phone. Nothing special, though.

[F80] Official BLACK SAPPHIRE F80 M3 Sedan Thread

I wanted the car lowered and decided to go with H&R M3/M4 springs. Got the springs from Eric @ Supreme Power in Anaheim. I also installed the front grills and reflectors. Reflectors I got from IND and grills from Supreme Power. The guys at supreme power are great and easy to work. Ivan @Strassesport was awesome. He helped with spacers and springs install. Awesome guy. If you ever need work done go to Ivan.

I have wheels that will arrive next week and tires are already at supreme power.

Exhaust will arrive in two week. I have ER downpipes which are amazing. Working on a few other products with them.

Hey Parky, would you say that the black m3 is noticeably an M car (or something more special than say a 320) by non-m enthusiasts? I know bsm tends to fly a little under the radar.

From the distance, it would be hard to distinguish between m3 and regular 3.

At close range, M3 shows really nice coke bottle body shape on the sides. Rear fender curve is absolutely stunning.
However, it is still black so sometimes it is hard to see all the lines/curves if they don't know where to look at.
So for most people, if they just quickly glance at the car, they won't probably notice it's something special. However, if they take a look at it for more than few seconds, they will start encountering everything special about the car.

Thanks for the response! I think I change my mind on color every other day leading up to my order. I've stopped discussing it with my friends, no one should have to listen to this indecisiveness.
