M340i - Need help deciding between these three colors

So I've got a refundable deposit on a moderately spec'd Tanzanite Blue II/Blk SensaTec build coming in within the week, but other dealers have begun to get in more loaded specs at just a little more than what I was quoted for my build.

Mine lacks leather and the Driving Pro, Parking Pro, and Exec packages, but these are more heavily equipped builds.

The COLOR seems to be the biggest debate for me....

Dravit Grey on Blk
Alpine White on Mocha
Tanzanite Blue II on Oyster

While white always works, I think Dravit and TB II will be the most unique and more rare on roads. Dravit is the most odd of the colors but yet I cannot stop looking away from it.

What are you thoughts? Should I just wait for my build or bite the bullet and get a more loaded stock spec this weekend?

Thanks!!

If time is not urgent, would pull the deposit and be patient. stock should be flowing in now, go see each color you like and pick one with the options you like the best. (or order one to spec)

also be hard on price, at minimum get to invoice less incentives (a few are doing even better than that), your quote on the first car was probably higher than it should be due to dealer creating a bit of fake demand before they started landing on lots

I agree to go see actual cars on the lot with the colors you want before pulling the trigger.

Also agree I've seen a lot of forum goers get 10% off MSRP before incentives.

Dravit Grey for sure, I couldn't stop looking at it either it's very unique color. Is there a reason why you would choose Dravit with Black interior why not Dravit with Cognac? Weird combo?

I'm getting really solid quotes. Here are a few for example...

$67k ($56k selling)
36/10k
$3000 down
$700/mo.

$64k ($54k selling)
36/10k
$3000 down
$685 mo

$60k ($51k selling)
36/10k
$1500 down
$689 mo.

How are you getting 16% off MSRP especially the first one? Is it because $3k down?

Thank you! Really love the style the shadowline and grill with the wheels gives to the car! Yes, I am in Canada...I can't understand why you can't have those from factory in the US! :

Definitely Dravit!!

BUT I would also be nervous having a custom paint (ie scratches, dings, ....). More costly to fix!

If those are leases, something seems off. At those reductions, your payment should be lower unless they are compensating by bumping your MF up. Especially for 10k per year.

If the car is in the sun and the car is clean then tansanite will look good, otherwise it just looks dark blue.

I'm picking up an AW on Mocha (with the Fine-wood trim oak grain open-pored). It's got everything but Exec Package and has the 792's.

Pics to come!

True but same could be said about alot of colors. Me personally I went with Dravit Grey + Cognac, but Tanzanite + Oyster would be my other choice no question. Such a polarizing combo. Really tough decisions, but honestly you can't go wrong either way. We always want what we don't have.
