Photo: LeMans Blue 1-er w. 261M Wheels

The photo was taken by JustMe a Swedish member of GermanCarZone at an auto show in Gothenberg Sweden over this weekend.
Although it's not id'ed in his post, I think this is the #337 M-Sportpacket option offered in Northern Europe. (see German Dealer Sheet)
It includes LeMans Blue, 18" 261M wheels and ...could that be...
Lemon leather option. About the only thing I'm certain of in this photo are the wheels- but LeMans Blue is the only way you get these wheels and vice-versa....
if I'm reading this German brochure correctly.

Right now I'm thinking I'll go with AW and Terracotta- but this is a very attractive package if on offer in N/A.
Hopefully the 261M's are a stand-alone option in N/A.

I wonder how this color would look with terracotta....I love saddle brown, but it is not offered unfortunately. Does anyone know if terracotta is offered on any current models? I would love to see this color up close.

Put it a shadowline exterior trim instead of a chrome one and you will get the car I will be driving since mid December.



I wonder which is the interior trim. I beg for more photos!!!

We have pretty good evidence that the color called "Terracotta" in the US brochure will actually be Terra. You can see Terra by using the UK configurator.

Note that the UK option code for Terra, LWB8, is the same listed for "Terracotta" in the US brochure.

Welcome back, Brook. It's been a while.

I like, although I'm a bit tentative on both colors, knowing I'd have to live with the choices for a while. The 261s are killer...

Thanks Spud....same here.
btw- I like your new avatar.
Also samo opinion w. LeMans- great color today...how's it going to look (to me) in a year's time and longer?
AW & 261s might be the ticket.

I prefer the classic look of the 264s. However, Le Mans blue is probably the best of the colors. Too bad there seems to be no indication of the US getting it.

Are we 100% certain that is Le Mans blue? I know it's no longer in production, but that looks identical to my Mystic Blue.

If it is in fact Le Mans, I'm very disappointed we will not be getting it here.

As long as I know, in Europe these wheels are the only way to get Le Mans blue for a 135i, but you can get the car with 241Ms in any other colour, including Montego blue. The reason is that Le Mans is only available if you choose the #337 M-Sportpacket option, which includes the 261M rims, among other things.

Thanks Doc...I won't be surprised if N/A gets a similar package right off the bat upon introduction.

It'd be nice if we could get those options - the 261 rims have grown on me. The ordering guide for the US doesn't show them but that's so prelim that one can still hope.

Mmmm....my exact exterior/interior combination. Would be very nice if they provide it as an option instead of having to go with a more costly BMW Individual order.

I tried to clean the photo up to knock some of the ambient color down-
it's getting what looks like a red reflection from somewhere- anyway, here 'tis again, slightly enhanced.
