Cool My new Vermilion Red E93, 335i, N55, Individual

Hi, everybody !!

First post here. I've been lurking and searching a lot for a long time, and thanks to the knowledge of the e90post forum members (and of the Spanish forum bmwfaq.com) I found all the information I needed to configure my car. Thank you all . So I think it's fair to show you (show off? ) my new car. It may be interesting to others who might be thinking right now what to choose, as I haven't seen many vermilion red 3 Series around here. IMHO, the color is awesome; it shows many different hues -from a deep wine red to an almost orange color-, depending on the angle and intensity of light. The photos I've taken are not edited, except for plate number removal, and it can be seen how sun, shade or the camera flash affect the car color.

The other main option I chose was the Individual package , which includes leather (champagne color), trims (piano black wood with two lines of aluminium inlay) and wheel (with piano black wood inlay).The leather is great, it feels silky, quite different from standard leather.

I cannot comment on differences between the N54 and the N55, I come from 2liter diesels (a Volkswagen Passat and a 320d). All I can say is that the engine is absolutely gorgeus. More torque than a diesel (at least the ones I had), and endless power.

Other observations (I picked up the car on Friday so I'm still learning):
DKG gear shifting is unnoticeable. At least for me. And it feels more responsive than Steptronic.

Voice recognition is quite good, I said my whole address without a pause and it understood it perfectly. However, the car's synth voice has a slight german accent when speaking spanish.

iPod connection no longer requires the special BMW cable. You can use the standard iPod cable and cover art is shown on the nav screen, while the iPod screen shows a BMW logo.

Bluetooth includes A2DP stereo profile, so I can connect the phone (an HTC TyTN II with Windows Mobile 6.1, I think it's called HTC Tilt in the USA) and listen to the phone's music through the car speakers.
And now the photos:

And just 3 photos right here to whet your appetite:








PS: please excuse any English mistakes, it's not my mother tongue.

It's officially called Champagne Merino Leather. I don't know whether it's available in the US, you can check it on BMW's UK website configurator

Mine has the rear console, but it doesn't have that split opening. It just rolls back...
