Also, would be very curious as to your impressions of LED lights vs xenons, both looking at the car from the outside and the view it gives the driver at night, e.g. brightness, color temperature, throw length, etc. I can't seem to find much information about this anywhere.

Beautiful car. Looks like a color cross between Imperial and Deep Sea.

Gorgeous car and love the rims. Want those for my F10.

I had the chance to drive and check out a 640i here in the states today while my rig was serviced and I absolutely loved it.

My only knock is the frameless windows. Meaning when you open the door; the windows are exposed at the top and it does that little shuffle downwards. Not sure why; but it bugged me.

Not enough to not want one though.

Enjoy!

Very nice. Congrats!

Question: I wonder, is it possible to have/bring a RHD car to the US? If I do ED? Or is ED that is bound for US LHD only?

Not sure why it bugged you or not sure why they do that? If the latter, it's so that when you shut the door, the window will be able to inch up in order to form a proper seal.

RHD cars technically aren't illegal in the US, they're just not recommended because our roads aren't designed for them. That said, when you do ED, you always pick up a car spec'd for your home country. I don't think you'd be able to get BMW to build you an RHD car bound for the US, in fact even though RHD cars are legal for consumers to import and drive in the US, I'm not whether manufacturers are allowed to sell RHD cars directly to customers here.

But of course, the computer monitor, the camera, and the fact that the car was photographed under auto show lighting all mean that the real-world appearance might be substantially different, so I'm wondering what your impressions are since nobody else seems to have this color. Your current pics make it look almost exactly like Imperial Blue, so I'm really looking forward to outdoor sunlight pictures. Can't wait, and congratulations!
I agree that this colour is fantastic. If you are looking for another blue option, however, look at Deep Sea Blue metallic. It really has to be seen in person

Looks great. Did you buy or are you leasing? Which Sytner dealer did you buy from?

Congrats on a beautiful car.
The color looks pretty dark in overcast weather, but I but it looks stunning when the sun hits the paint.
