Anyone else notice that the CF roof did not have the colored M stripes? I guess that mod requires a whole new roof? BMW M Performance CF roof

So the perforations were, indeed, for ventilated seats? I've suspected that, but it was never confirmed.

It is my understanding (as told to me by a couple of BMW reps) there is no active ventilation. The holes only allow passive ventilation. I was hoping for the option of actively cooled seats as on the 5/6-series, but no-joy. Well, per the reps I talked to.

The vehicles I have been in along with the one I currently own, the active cooled seats don't seem to do much. I haven't been in a BMW with them though so I'm not sure if they are any different.

Or perhaps it's because I live in Arizona and there isn't much that would help with the 115 degree temps anyways.

I'm sure the performance is negligible when you're dealing with that type of heat.

For those that have seen the cars in person, what are your thoughts on the black wheels? Do they look as bad in person as they do in the pics?

Probably right. Perhaps I should try them out later today since it will be in the mid 70's today.

That blue isn't doing it for me. The grey is nice, but I could take it or leave it as a color, but I guess that's better than just not liking it.

What I do like is that the doors don't have CF (or whatever would be the dashboard trim) on them. Also, I love the white interior. That'd be a lot of fun to have, but a beast of a thing to keep smart looking.

All the best.

I got a chance to see the M cars in DC today. Turns out I do not like Yas Marina Blue like I had initially thought. Definitely changing my order asap.

On the other hand, the M3 in Silverstone exterior! WOW. It looks so professional sitting there. You have to see it in the flesh. That's definitely the color I want. Now to find a complimentary interior color other than black or silverstone. Seeing this M3 in person really eliminated my initial color combo YMB/Silverstone.

The SS interior there was way too dirty. I can see that get annoying fast. And black? I just don't think black does those seats justice. decisions...

Well here are a couple snaps from my phone for ya.

Thanks for the pictures and your view to SS exterior. Very glad to read what you said about SS. I plan to get SS exterior and SO interior.

How different was YMB in person compared to the pictures you had seen? Interested to see your opinion since you had thought you would have liked it.

Agree with Mr2d and Sir Loin. That car would look absolutely perfect once the CF roof was on to add a little drama.

I'm also going for SS with SO interior, I think the rather conservative exterior colour allows one to be a bit more lively with the interior.

I'm also thinking about having the part black/part silver wheel option rather than the ferric one shown (Though I've never been a fan of all black wheels)

. I get the feeling that with SS + CF roof + part black wheels + SO interior = just the right balance of being understated and aggressive all at the same time

After seeing them in person, I can attest that they are not part black and part silver. For some reason, on pictures, this portion that looks silver reflects the light a lot more than it does in real life. It is really more akin to a sort of "black chrome". It looks very dark and almost completety black from some angles in real life.

I am personnaly still debating between the black/balck chrome wheels and the grey/silver ones as the best match for my SSII exterior. IMO, the silver are more elegant while the black are sportier.

I agree. I may switch from black wheels to silver wheels. Silver is a safer bet without seeing them in person.

My expectations of YMB were that I believed it would have some deeper color depth. I just didn't find any. It appeared a bit pastel-like in color, which I really don't want in any shade of blue. I'll confess that it was the M4 was in YMB and not the M3. Maybe (a big stretch) I would have liked it a little more.

However, Silverstone in the flesh just does it for me. I'm also glad I got to see both wheels in person. I'm not fond of either now. lol.

Good to hear. Confirms my decision to go with the black wheels then. You can see this in effect ever so slightly in the M4 walk around video that was posted here from the Detroit Auto Show.

My carbon leather was looking worn when I sold the car IMO. And I was pretty OCD about trying to keep it clean. Maybe so OCD that I made it look worn.

I miss it. Carbon fiber in large quantities does nothing for me. I want another option for the dash.

Mine still looked brand new after 2 years. I never really had to "keep it clean".

My e90 is SSII with fox red and it is a stunning combo I'm sure the same with SSll and SO interior. I have had 3 M cars in Silverstone I love it that much. I wish I wasn't so burnt out on it.
