From the pictures by spikes111 and Waldi330d, you can tell that it is a 325i, right? If so, how come the grilles are chome? I though only the 330i got the chrome grille? Is it because they might be european cars (I'm speculating here), or have I missed something. Thanks.

You are correct. On euro-spec cars, 6-cylinder models have chrome grilles (and also chrome window trim).

Thanks for the answer.

Arggg! I didn't even notice the chrome trim you guys get over in europe with any e90 equipped with 6 cylinders. Why these cosmetic differences between US and Euro versions???

Who knows how much the chome grilles and chrome window trim will cost in the aftermarket? (I will also post in Official Interior Thread).

This color continues to perplex and taunt me!

"Pick me! I'm lighter than SG but not so common as TiAg. And my color-light-shifting abilities will dazzle you and everyone around you!"

That's what I keep hearing when I look at the pics of this Jeckyll & Hyde color.

Man, I saw an Arctic 330i at the dealer closest to me. I never really was that into it until I saw it last night. Positively gorgeous. I'm a die-hard TiAg guy, but I might just have to go Arctic.

I have yet to see one in person but I'm leaning away from TiAg and towards Arctic....any car color that confuses so many people is right up my alley.

OK...scratch that. I saw my first Arctic at the dealer today and after looking at it from every angle I decided it was NOT for me. It doesn't look aggressive at all...maybe it was the wheels (325). Some of the pics look great but pics can be very deceptive.

xspeedy nice that's my favorite shade of arctic, when it looks grayish/bluish. You get to test drive this beauty?

I'm only interested in driving a 6-speed. Everything at the dealer was a slushtronic.

To add, what is nice about this picture is you can compare the Arctic to the Silver Gray (the X3 to the left side of the frame).
