Not Certain What To Do

I've located a 128i Vert that could work but isn't perfect. Sapphire Black/Sav Beige; Cold, PP, Sport, Manual Trans, Xenons, Ipod. I like the equipment but am nervous about the black. Offered $2k off MSRP

Better to wait and order exactly the color I want - which I don't even quite know yet? I hate not knowing if the price will jump up, but it could be a small price if I end up having a dirty black car all the time!

Exterior color is one of those things I think you need get exactly what you want. If you're apprehensive about it, I would suggest not pulling the trigger, especially since it's black. Black looks great, but it takes so much care to prevent swirls - it demands a lot of attention and if you're iffy about it, you'll probably end up regretting it a few years down the road when it's not "showroom new". That's my take on it.

It really depends on if you are planning to own the car for a couple years, or just leasing for short term. If you are planning to own for awhile, it is probably better to pick the exact options and color that you want.

black is a nice color, but if you dont like it, thats all that matters.
FYI....i have silver and it hides the dirt well
