So no one else on the forum owns this paint? It is definitely a rare color but surprisingly I've recently seen no less than 3 E9x in Southern France (E90, E92, M3 E92). As I previously said it can be mistaken with black when the weather is cloudy, elsewise it can be quite easily spotted as it is possibly the darkest blue BMW has ever released (except under direct sun rays).

Lovely car. The colour goes so well with the wood trim.

I think the wheels are good, but the Bridgestone runflats are generally pretty nasty. If it was my car I'd get rid of them in an instant.

And here are the same with less lighting






PS: fine eyes will spot another E91 in the same street, that one is a common Sapphire Black but it is just as rare over here due to its engine (35i)

Gorgeous, gorgeous combo. Considering Azurite for my M3 as well. Can I ask, is your wood trim the individual eucalyptus red brown trim? I've been looking everywhere for an example on an E9x, and haven't been able to find one yet. Considering that as well.

It's funny how much prices differ across the world... My husband was saying tonight, it's not fair our M3's cost significantly more than in the States (despite our dollar being at par). But your E91 330d (albeit with luxury pak and all) costs almost the same as an M3 here.

I already replied by PM but for general information it is just the stock Dark Burl trim and not the Individual Eucalyptus which is more reddish

If not, I'm happy you have money to throw out of the window, and I adivse you to check for oil prices in Europe and in France for instance and you'll understand why about 3/4 of new cars over here are selling in diesel But yes, I agree, the performance to efficiency ratio of the 30d is almost too good

Thanks Nope, this will remain as a "classical" family car... It's interesting how different the automobile cultures are in N. America compared to Europe, as judging from the different forums I feel like it's almost bnormal to not modifly anything in the States... The next (F31) will probably be just as stock but at least it should get 18" wheels and ///M chassis (I actually find the stock configuration + 17" wheels a tad too soft and it "pumps" a little too much on hilly roads...

This must be one of my favourite e91's out there, one of the few 330d's with a manual, is that why you chose it over a 335d?

Perfect configuration in my opinion I'm very jealous
Are you still running the car?

Yes and because it is powerful enough for the intended use.
Looking to sell it soon
