Awesome color and amazing car! Looks like you ticked every single option on your build - LEDs, full Nappa, active cruise, night vision, B&O.....

I didn't realize it was a GC at first as I didn't read the thread title and the first pic didn't show anything but the front. Scrolled down and saw the side profile and had a nice surprise

Enjoy!

Amazing!! I don't think I'll ever get over my blue craze for cars, but if I ever want/need something less flashy and sporty than my current Le Mans Blue, I think this could well be my pick. The NY Auto Show photos seem to suggest that it's a deep midnight blue under indirect lighting but with a very full, inky undertone that appears under direct lighting, with a lot of turquoise fleck as well. 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!

Grats on you car . I don't know how you got your car so soon! I'm also interested in seeing more pictures of this car in sunlight since I almost picked this color before settling on the Frozen Bronze.

Thanks for the pics mate! I ordered mine also in Tanzanite Blue with Champagne individual leather. It will be there the first week of August. But until now I didn't know how it would look like. Amazing color!! Can you make some pics of the car when the sun is shining?
Cheers

Thanks for the updated pics, OP! Any chance of getting some in brighter sunlight rather than outdoor overcast? I know from experience that that can be a tall order in the UK though!

Anyone who says this interior isn't as nice or on par with that of Audi and Mercedes is full of it. The 6er is just a beautiful car, period - something we can't always say about BMW's.

Looks great. Seems like you have every option for the GC must've cost a fortune. That's a great color combo.
