Wonderful car, congrats!

Did you consider Imperial Blue and Azurite Black vs Tanzanite Blue and why did you pick one of the other? I'm leaning towards Azurite Black myself.

For the interior I'm leaning towards Amaro Brown i.o. Cohiba. Did you consider Amaro and if so why did you prefer Cohiba? I've not seen any of these colors in person, so just going by what is visible online.

Pretty awesome color. I'm still partial to San Marino Blue though.

I have amaro brown and love it. My initial color combo was singapore grey with sahkir orange interior but when I saw the amaro brown it was perfect. Everyone who gets in my car comments and loves the color.

First of all congrats
Looks beautiful

How are you going to do the Carbon Fiber?
How much?
Where?
All the car trim?

Thanks
Enjoy it in good health

I considered Imperial Blue, but I found it too dark/black. Also the tanzanite is more blue-er, if that makes sense. LOL.

I also considered the Amaro and Nutmeg interiors but both did not appeal to me. I have loved the Cohiba from the first day I saw it and this is my second car now with the Cohiba. Looks so much better in person than in the photos.

Going with the Carbon Fibre BMW M Perfomance package. It would be nice if BMW did a carbon leather trim like I had in my X5M.

congrats! Nice car
It looks pretty similar to the imperial blue. Have you seen both colors to comment on the difference?
I have IB and looks almost the same, maybe IB a bit darker

IB is IMO black with a hint of blue, whereas TB is distinctly blue even in low light conditions.

Here is a quick pic. Cohiba is such a hard color to capture. Need to photograph it in low light conditions without a flash to capture the true color. Here is a picture with a flash that I have darkened and I think is pretty damn close to Cohiba.

Gorgeous and classy color combo.

Are you going with the iND 2x2 CF trim? Complete combo should look great.
