The original BMW press release stated Titanium Silver as standard, and two individual colours (Estoril Blue and Velvet blue) for the Clubsport. Most are silver or Estoril; the Velvet Blue is pretty rare.

Iirc Carbon Black was also available.
I think you might be right. It wasn't a Clubsport launch colour, but was added afterwards. Allegedly 6 Clubsports came to the UK in Black.

I have only seen one velvet blue clubsport in the metal before and it was lush. The pictures posted in here don't do it justice at all!

Caught this nice snap of my E91 last week as I was setting off to give away the bike on board:

So many clean cars, mines filthy and I'm struggling to get the motivation to clean it!

Picked this up at the weekend. Year old 440i with under 10k.
Had a lovely drive back from London to Glasgow in it.

How did you find it? I've never worked up the courage to have a go as fear I will burn through the paint and cause more harm than good! Car is looking fantastic though, love the wheels.

Back with an updated pic of my own, spent the last two afternoons thoroughly cleaning the car prior to polishing and waxing by hand:

Very easy mate, id reccomend giving it a go, just make sure you get a Dual Action polisher. Its pretty difficult to cut through the paint, you'd have to press on silly hard and keep it in the same place.

I think i could of done a better job and spent a bit longer, maybe next summer when its worth cleaning lol.

yes with a dual action polisher, the foam pad would explode before you go through the clear coat.

Some recent shots of my F02 760Li after a good clean and wax (autoglym products).

Interesting to compare the look of the white ("Mineral White") finish to the 440 in the post above. Surprisingly different look - I wonder how much is the paint and how much is the wax.

She's getting there... engine and gearbox remap done. Hybrid turbo and suspension tweaks still to go.

The power delivery is brutal.

Here’s mine, bought a couple of months ago and absolutely love it.

Nick, it looks very new. Was it a run out pre facelift, or did it have a few miles on it. You don't often see such high spec cars. Did you search specifically for it or just happened to come across it when looking? Perfect spec btw
Sorry for the super late reply, I started looking at S Class and 7 series for the mile munching that I was supposed to be doing, 35k per annum. I started comparing specs across the cars available and before I knew it I was looking for the highest spec possible.

This one has about £25k worth of options on it. It came in new at £103k. I bought it 9 months old, 1 owner with 3k miles on from a main dealer, for a lot less hehe it’s one of the last pre facelift cars. Due to COVID I’ve only gone to the shops and back... still a nice car but not the intended purpose so far.

My X5 is Mineral White, in certain lights it can look quite different, I'm not really sure how to describe it, almost creamy?
