Sapphire Black 650i M sport

Well, at last I got it. This car is one of the first batch of coupes to make it to Australia.

There are two differences compared to the American ones that I immediately noted - no front reflector and the shadowline trim rather than the chrome / ally trim. I like it.

Another, I could have bought two of these in America for the same money, and still have money left. That difference I am less happy about...

Anyway, after less than 100 kilometers, I already am crazy about this car. I particularly like the little snort the exhaust (in sport mode) makes as it changes gears up, especially between the first few gears...

Looks great, now you need to put some wax on it to take care of that beautiful paint.

Thanks for the positive comments.

After the first 3 days with this new car, I would have to admit it has exceeded my already high expectations. Even if you restrict your revs to say 4,500 or 5,000 as I am doing right now, this car has awesome performance. I wonder if some of the performance numbers are not a little conservative....
