Dude,

Wanted to ask you: How 's active steering working out for you? to me, frankly it felt a bit un-natural!

Also, you don't have any pics of your e92

Thanks for the kind words guys.......I had the a deposit on a TiAg/Coral Red/Grey Popular E92 335i (The first allocation for my dealer) but I got sick of waiting. The deposit was taken in May and I was supposed to have my car by around the first week of September (So I was told) however it got delayed to an October delivery (October it is almost winter up here in Northern Alberta). The dealer ended up getting this car in July and with the 335i's on the way in a little while I got a really great deal on it.

As for the Color it was not one of my choices but I have to say I really like it. It seems to grow on you every time you look at it. It looks like a light grey in some lights and then a green or blue in others. Definitely keeps you interested.

You're not the only one



I also custom ordered my car in June, and , like you, got delayed and delayed.

I was told the delay was because its was taking a lot longer than usual to clear the cars off the boats at the harbors due to hightenned security measures from the latest terror scare in the summer months.

I finally got my 330i in September and also, like you, had my eyes on a space grey coral red leather 335i, I was tempted but I had already committed to the 330i

And yes, the more I look at it the more I appreciate the color, especially with the new space age wax-like product I got for it!

Check out my ride!

Here are my pics for my 06 325 arctic. These pics were at the dealer's website. Loks blue due to cloudy day, i like it how the blk leather complimented the exterior. Hope this helps.

Ok, there is a dispute thread going on here (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47873)

and so far this is the only pic of Arctic with a Blackout Grill known to man.. ..I originally was thinking no, but after finding this pic i can't decide. I think a blackout grill would look great on any color from this angle picture. But I was hoping that someone out there had more pictures to share with a Blackout grill on Arctic? Anyone??

Or are you stating you have black wheels?

I would love to see some more pics of your ride you could upload them on a site that has a bigger size limit, here are the instructions

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26089

Or you could just resize them on your computer. Are those 189's or 199's? More pics!! PLEASE!!

edit: After looking at the pic alittle more I see they are 189's...

Now that you've had your Arctic for a while...

So this morning as I sat here pondering the meaning of life, I asked myself, "Mike, you've had your Arctic E90 for 6 months now and it's pretty spiffy and all, but would you get the same color again on your next BMW?"

After some deliberation I came to the conclusion that while I have enjoyed the uniqueness of the arctic color, I doubt that I'd be a repeat arctic owner.

What are your thoughts?

I would not because everywhere I go in CAli in the last few months I see one.
When I first picked this car up in early 06
It was probably a year before I saw another Arctic Metallic. Now I see 2 a day.

I don't know...I do love arctic, But here on the east coast (VA more or less), I really only know a few (very well), spyders, VAe90's, nikki, my best friends mom, and a couple more. Arctic is RARE color here! I see TiAg and Spark. Grap. ALL THE TIME! I hardly ever see arctic e90's, and I have NEVER seen an e92 with arctic (in person).

It is kinda bland, and not that sporty, but I really feel I am only saying that because i have had it for 2 years or so now! I think everyone kinda feels that way after about their color after a while. If I were to go and get a e92 tomorrow in Spark. G, I would regret not getting space gray after a while too.

Some more pics of my new baby! I was completely up in the air with what exterior color to choose...I was oh so close to selecting SG or Metalic Black; I could not be happier with Arctic...it's a very rare color in these parts and the compliments are flying in. Also included a pic or two of the interior.
