My 2012 SG* 135i

Unfortunately, I can't take delivery of my car until this Tuesday; however, I couldn't help but drive down and check her out in person; she arrived today, only four days from preparation center to dealer. I snapped a couple of quick pics with my iPhone. This is my favorite color. Let me know what you guys think.

Very nice, but it's SG. SGM was God's color and has been recalled to heaven.
Be sure to get the shadowline grilles by the way.

Yep! I already ordered the grilles from Tischer last week! I was thinking about checking out some hyper black rims as well. Anybody have any ideas for wheels??

Great choice. I'd kill for the LCI and 2012 Nav package. 2009 still has the nice one, but I dun wanna pay for the update!

UPDATE with more pictures

I decided to drive around some back roads this evening and took the camera along to take some shots. The pictures aren't really that good as the clouds started to cover up the sun. As has been said before, I LOVE this car, it is ridiculous how much torque is there right away; it almost feels like an NA engine. It is true what other members have said that the break-in period isn't hard because you have a lot of torque below 3000 rpm. The most impressive thing is how solid the car feels, like a tank! I put the blacked-out grilles on the first day I got the car. I only took one picture of the interior simply because it is black on black leatherette.
