Need to see those pictures! I'd never even considered monaco blue until I saw this thread today. I'm completely torn on what color to order.

I think it is rare because most photos of it are not good. Make it look flat and dull. I saw a 335 sedan with it the other day, late afternoon, and it looked stunning. Decided on the color then and there.

Congrats man, looks great! The Lemon interior really looks good, and I look forward to seeing it in person at some midwest meets. But, WTH is that hanging from your center vents?:iono::biggrin:

No.. P1 option cost the same as Leather interior.
The car is still very new, so I can't tell if it is easy or not.. but the leather cleaner that I use did a very good job to wipe out any color marks..

It's about time! We're dying over here!

Just make sure you take the pics in good lighting that really shows the true color of MB. My car doesn't come in for four more weeks -- I need a fix bad.

And could you post lots of 'em? And make sure we get a good look at how those new wheels look with MB ?

Ok, that's all my requests for now

Detailed my 135 after 1200mi break in.
3M clear bra and 40% all around tint installed.

From some angle you can clearly see the clear bra cut off, but mostly it's invisible.
