Toronto auto show? If so was this the only G20 or is the 330i on display as well?

Yes, Toronto auto show. They do have a 330i on display as well. In case you have been waiting to test drive one, cars will start arriving at dealers here in Canada later this week.

Car show photos

Car show photos are useless because there is too much light. Even the sapphire black looks dark grey. I haven't been in car show ten years at least. New metallic paints are made for outdoor seeing so presenting them under hundreds of reflectors has no point.

Natural lighting brings out the color best. Had Tanzanite M3 and really like the color and ordered my M340ix in this color.

Pure sex , love that this color is individual and extra cost. Won’t see as much of it on the roads. Classy, sleek, sporty, elegant. The Portiamo blue is nice and all, but not crazy about it. And the streets will be flooded with those soon

Agreed. TB on the F30 is much darker in natural light, in fact too dark for me. Can anyone confirm how TB2 looks in the real world?

Best way to photograph the color is just before the sunset or on a sunny day in the shadow. Too much light makes false experience.

It's brighter than Tanzanite Blue. In natural lighting, Tanzanite Blue II looks blue, it doesn't really have the dual-colour effect like Tanzanite Blue and Carbon Black where without sun, you might mistaken it for black but in the sun, you see the blue.

What's your source bro?

I ordered TBII and would be really disappointed if they changed the colour a lot because I love TB

P.s. imo the original TB always clearly looks like a blue colour, only at night it might be mistaken..

I definitely agree and that is why I ordered my M340i xDrive in TB as it was the only color that said "Yes" to me.

I feel like the M340i only looks good in TB or Black Sapphire Metallic.

If it wasn't for my son being 8 I would have gone with Oyster on the inside.

It's comically bad... I'm sure BMW will revise it in the mid-cycle refresh though. No way they let that monstrosity stick around.

It's a shame too, because I think the rest of the car is fine.
