That. Is. Simply. GORGEOUS. Could I check with you - are your brake calipers painted black or left in normal steel color please?

And your headlights - bi xenon?

Awesome color mate!

Thank you for your comments, I got the 8 speed auto and considering how big this car is I made the right choice for my needs.

If you've got xenon, then it is bi-xenon.
I don't think they deliver xenon+halogen any more

You have a beautiful new car. Congrats.

Interesting, my calipers weren't painted, and I thought LEDs were part of the M package.

On the BMW site they have 20" wheels and LED headlights as its own stand alone option for $2900, I like LED but not $2900 worth I opted for the 20" wheels for $1300 instead. Yes my calipers are painted black, I thought they all came painted.

In Canada the LED light pkg ($2900) must be ordered with the Tech Pkg (for another $4000) !!! It just doesn't stop adding up!! But I ordered them anyway.

Elias, could I just ask about the carbon black - does it look dark-bluish/purplish under certain lighting angles? I thought the pictures you took showed different hues under different lightings - but I wasn't sure if that's just your camera setting or otherwise.

Thanks in advance for your clarification!

Well the color does look different under different lighting,the more light you have the more bluish tint seems to come out, but under less light then the
color is more dark blue to black. Thats the reason I chose the carbon black because of the different shades depending on the lighting and the angle on which the light hits the car. Hope that helps!

Yes it does! Thanks so much Elias! I ordered mine in Carbon Black as well, but was having serious thoughts because I didn't want another pure black car (my present ride is an F02 in Sapphire Black, which we are keeping as the family carrier).

Now I can rest assured while waiting for the F13's arrival

Thanks a bunch again - and congrats on the new car!
