I'm still not quite sure which colour I'll take but I'll most probably go for black sapphire with shadow line, 216 wheels and terra leather.

Some black sapphire pics I didn't see here, yet...

Quick question...would black sapphire metallic hide scratches/swirlmarks better than jet black? I was almost 100% convinced on SGM, but after seeing these pics I have to say black is looking even better. My only concern is how black will look after a couple of years. Any people care to share from experience with thier jet/sapphire cars?

trust me from experience, jet black is hard to keep clean and swirl free! you can also see defects a lot easier but IMO it looks so sexy it would be worth it for me. To me Saphire looks too bland compared to jet black but i here you dont have to worry about leaving marks as much since its metallic.

Hard to maintain but when clean and under a night sky, it's tough to beat.

I currently have a '95 318 convertible in jet balck and I love the color, especially on bimmers. However, I've had it repainted several times because it is a scratch magnet. I'm in the process of ordering a 128 and I've considered all the metallic alternatives to jet black, but I simply can't resist it. Ultimately I had to ask myself what color do I really want to look at every day and since '95 nothing beats a jet black bimmer.

My 2 cents

That's a gorgeous combination you've picked. I chose Sapphire Black (with red leather), but the graphite looks fantastic with the shadowline. I wish I'd thought of that.

imo i think blk sap does hide nicks etc.. better then jet.. but its hard to tell the overall diff between the colors.. they are very close..

It's just about the same drop touted by the H&R Super Sports.
