Interior trim/leather colour and Sparkling Graphite(?) all go well together.

yep she's sparkling graphite. love the colour...as the name says it really does sparkle and appear different in colour in sunlight :rocks:

thanks for all the replies. BTW forgot to add...i posted a while ago about a "whistle" from the passenger door. this turned out NOT to be the door seal but a hairline crack in the wing mirror housing. BMW Dealer replaced entire passenger door mirror housing and since then problem resolved, result!

I have exactly the same thing intermittently - it's been driving me mental. Thanks for the tip, will get it checked out. Can you post a link to the thread please?

Beautiful car BTW. Congrats.

here is the link:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80295

not a lot more detail. basically dealer diagnosed in the following way:

- motorway test drive with me to repro issue
- motorway test drive with mirrors in "folded" position, no noise
- motorway test drive with mirrors in normal position, noise back
- motorway test drive with duck-tape all over passenger door mirror, no noise

replaced entire passenger door mirror housing - problem fixed

i find the ride v.good and a lot better in terms of tram lining than i was expecting . last two cars have both been E60's on 18" RFT's so i am used to this kind of setup. if your coming from non-rft or non m-sport suspension it might take a bit of getting used to
