New to the club!

Picked up our new-to-us '08 SGM 6-MT M-Sport coupe late last week, just in time for the long weekend!

Here's a half-decent shot:

Definately A nice color. As an earlier 1 series color, I can see where it can get overlooked by the space grey...there's lots of space grey 1 series cars.
I do remember this color on BMW USA.com when I was playing with the build your own configs in 08'.

I still have my 08 brochure with all of the color swaths...I was so pissed that I couldn't get my vert in Sedona at first...how stupid was I back then?

Here is my new (to me) 2008 SGM/ Coral Red 135i that I just picked up from a local 1addicts member. I was able to get a few snaps before I put the winter wheels on.

The car came with: Performance grill, 50% tint, GP thunder angel eye's and a set of 17" winters.









I plan on only a few light mods, but I said that about the last that ended up as a semi-show car.




The rest of the photoset

Nice shts.

I'm about to hit 50k and the car still looks new from over 2ft away. This paint is amazing and hide regular wear and tear really nicely. Time to mod the ahit out of it and make the 1M vert that BMW never will

Thanks. It was gloomy day and we were rushed to make sure we got the winters on. I can't wait for spring to flex my hobbyist photography skills.

To your note, I bought mine like new with 46k on the clock. My past two GTI's were falling apart by now and this car feels more solid then when they were new. I wont even begin to compare it to my Acura TSX.

Well SGM is still the best color IMHO.....mine has a few minor nicks and light scratches here and there but still looks great...my fav. thing about the color is that low light and bright light makes it look COMPLETELY different...like two different colors...can't wait to get back from Iraq and repaint my performance bumper and still look better than the 1M...LOL...yes I do think mine looks better....

This is slightly darker than Space Gray right?

This is actually such a nice colour, if they still had it as an option I would have opted this over the apline weiss probably.
