Looks a whole lot better in person than in the photo. Photo makes it look too dark. Is this the new Silver-grey Metallic? That is, in terms of uniqueness and awesome looking-ness.

Talking Mineral Grey M Sport

Hello everyone! Just changed my order from a Glacier Silver Sport Line to a Mineral Grey M Sport! Got it with the coral red/black interior, premium, handling, and tech packages, and H/K sound. Set for delivery in November! Sucks I have to wait so long, but it'll be nice to come home from deployment to my new toy!

For me it was just the other way around. Original order sapphire black but when I saw the mineral grey...but not a bad choice. It really is a great car in black as well. Enjoy the wait, mine should be close to over. (he said...)

Devildoc13, great minds think alike. Got my 328 in mineral grey, dark rear windows, black leather interior, M suspension, sport steering unfortunately I ran out of cash for the H/K sound system. Delivery set for mid July. I want this car so bad, I can taste it.. As soon as it is delivered I'll post some pictures...

The wait in general sucks. I think it might have been worse though when I did European Delivery for the E92 335i since you get to drive the car in Germany and then wait for it to make it's way back to the US!

Looking forward to seeing some pictures!

Yeah, not sure which is worse, waiting for my car to be built and shipped, or knowing that even under the worst of circumstances, it'll still beat me back to the States. It is, however, nice to know that upon returning from deployment with the Marines that I'll have the holidays to spend with my family and my new car to enjoy. I'll definitely post pics once I get home.

Nice car. Congrats! Too bad about the rim and door though.

How is the M Suspension?

Thanks. I am so glad I took Mineral Grey iso black. Sharp eyes, the car is indeed equipped with the M suspension (not the adaptive one.. :-( ) it does make a bit more noise when driving on city roads (especially those in Antwerp...) but on good roads it is a joy, the car really handles very well and there is no comfort trade off. And it really improves the line of the car as well. I recommend it ! (especially in combination with the sports steering...)

I think MG shows the lines well. Can't decide on M Suspension though because we ordered an xDrive. Don't want a real rough ride. From your input, I think I should order it.

Even on a rainy summer day near Waterloo, the car looks great.
