After some looking, I was able to get this 14 650i in Carbon Black Metallic. Beautiful with less than 56k on the clock. Drove a couple hours to get it so had the joy of driving home. Happy camper so far!!

I like Carbon Black. Your challenge is to post photos that show the blue.

When I got my 2017 F13 home the first thing I did was give it a good clean and spent some quality time going over it by hand with some compound and it was amazing how well it added depth to the paint and revealed the 'blue' within. On a sunny day you'd never think the car was black.

Thoroughly recommend the OP does the same, its a few hours well spent!

It's amazing how blue it can look. That second shot looks almost as blue as my Deep Sea Blue car. The first shot kinda looks like Ruby Black.

Are tinted windows something you like? I think it would look great, as it enhances the Chrome parts

I definitely plan on giving it a good wash and wax. The weather here in Va has been so unpredictable lately. It's supposed to be in the 60s this weekend but calling for rain. Once I can get a warm weekend with sunny days after, I'll give her a good bath.
