Frosty,
It shouldn't take six weeks for your E92 to reach the east coast, because that's about the length of time that it takes for a new bimmer to reach the west coast of Canada. Hopefully, you should see your car in 4-5 weeks after production is completed.
Please share your impressions after you get your new machine.

You can't tell me that these 2 cars are naturally the same colour. If it did, I would have ordered it myself.

Of all the photos of Space grey on this thread, perhaps the 1st, 3rd and 4th photos above come the closest to reality. But even these photos are a pale imitation of the real Space grey. The coupe looks very handsome and classy in this colour. The strong silver metallic flaking in the paint does not seem to come through in the photos. IMO, this is the best silver/grey colour that BMW has introduced since Sterling silver. Space grey has no odd undertones like Sparkling graphite (can appear eggplant in the sun). If you like a rich grey look, Space grey is a great choice. IMO, the coupe looks much better in this colour than TiAg.

I totally agree, on Friday I saw 2 space grey 335i's(1 prepped, 1 dirty). On Sunday I'll test drive the latter(it's being prepped). They also had a TiAg 335i. Space Grey would be my first choice, tho I'd prolly get Saddle Brown int, that Coral Red is a bit much IMO.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for posting those pictures!

Congrats on your choice !
As far as alternatives for the interior, have you seen grey poplar ? I think it looks much better than the al trim that scratches and dents very easily. I test drove a coupe this morning with this bright trim. It looks flashy,but it does reflect light into your eyes depending on the sunlight.
If you want to liven up the interior, consider saddle brown/burl walnut, or if you are really brave, go for the coral red/grey poplar. If you choose red exterior, you will be amongst a very few with this choice (see the E92 Poll thread).
Whatever combo you end up choosing, it will be a fabulous machine !!! :rocks:

Noticed you got Jade Gray interior......
Does the Jade Gray come with the black carpet / speaker housings in CA. It seems like all trims go very well with Jade.... What did you go with?

Would you or any other know if there is a way to order the Jade Gray in the US?
