Don't you think that the M340i is in Mineralgrau?

I was really set on getting the blue on the M340i (coming from having a Estoril Blue 340i) but the Dravit Grey looks amazing. I really like the flat look similar to a darker Nardo grey.

But this will probably be a special individual color option right?

Dravit grey is an individual color, but here in Belgium it costs only €400 more than the "normal" metallic paints.

I think it's a solid glossy paint. Flat would be like the "frozen" paints.

I remember when the f30 design was initially released and then we got to see some spy shots. I was jumping up and down! Couldn't wait for it to be in my driveway.

This generation, not so much. I also doubt it drives much better than the f30.

After owning 4 consecutive generations of 3 series, I think I will sit this one out.

The Mineral Grey could potentially be the Alpina B3/D3 as it is at Alpina's facility.

Wow, the M340i is incredibly good looking from the angle that first photo was taken. Can't wait to see one in person.

I'm going to order the 330i next month and i'm thinking about Dravit Grey of Portimao Blue.

I'm now driving a Melbourne Red F31 and the Dravit Grey may be to brave for me... I've seen it on a 8 series and it's a fantastic colour which changes with the light (cloudy, sunny,..).

Another month to think about it...

In my country there is also a M850i with that colour.
I'm going to check it out this weekend.

Space Grey was a little too purple for me.

Mineral Grey is a true Grey.

Time (and consequent sales) will tell.

Nice 50 shades of grey they have going on.

I think of flat as non metallic and matte as frozen

Whoever still says this doesn't look as good as the F30 needs their eyes checked. I have an M4 which I think is gorgeous but this thing lookS GOOD. The side profile with the creases looks money.
