Sorry, I know I promised to upload some photos of my car, but I haven't got the time to take photos during daylight and my camera performs very poorly with artificial light.

I can't take good photos of the exterior, but the outside of my car is pretty similar to the one posted by Croatian test driver (mine has the high gloss trim instead the chromed one).

The interior looks in this way:

There is practically no doubt the US will get the M shift knob with ZSP. The configurator and every US-spec show car with ZSP so far has had the M shift knob.

To each his own, but I think the door sills are a little over the top for a non-M car.

I don't like Montego at all. But this colour appears sufficiently different that I'm :wub:

Funny that the pics that Croatian Test Driver just posted show the "BMW Efficient Dynamics" sticker in the back window. The 135i doesn't even have most of the Efficient Dynamics enhancements of the smaller petrol and diesel engines.

The 135i only lacks the auto star stop function, which is only available for 4 cylinder engines.

You mean the 182's? They're similar, but the 182s have straight spokes, while the 261Ms have a spokes with slight curve & bulge. The 261Ms also have the //M logo, of course. See below... the 261Ms have the black background:

Maybe the differences are more apparent in person or at different angles, because they look like 95% the same to me from that comparison.

Just got back from my dealer's. They had a 135 in LeMans blue and a diesel in Sedona red. I can confirm that LeMans blue looks great. A really intense, almost electric blue. Very much the way it appears in brochures. And Sedona red is NOTHING like the way it appears online and in BMW brochures. It looks like Campbell's cream of tomato soup.

Now, this was in the shop, and the lighting was flourescent. But if Sedona red looks good in sunlight, it will be the biggest indoor/outdoor contrast I have ever seen by far.

Yes, this is the rare blue photo for which we have confirmation of the color; it is LeMans. Monaco looks almost black in everything but very bright light, whereas Montego is the blue that is typically confused with LeMans in photos.

With all of the Montego / LeMans comparisons, does anyone know if either of these colors are the same as HyperBlue on the MINI? I think they are all very close.

Each has a unique internal code: http://www.sikkenscr.de/img/mehralsl...BMW_MJ2005.pdf
