While I was @ my BMW dealer picking up the beast from service I happen to pick up an 08 brouchure as I was skimming through it I noticed that Carbon Black has now been added as another color choic, funny when I was ordering mine carbon blk would have been extra,:grrrrr: seems like there were 2 printings of the 08 brochure.

I understand Carbon Black is now a stock colour. A bit late but BMW have finally responded to customer requests.

My M3 which is my track car (gutted inside, roll cage, etc) is carbon black. I love the response I get from people. Is it blue? Black? I say it's both. Glad to see BMW is offering it again.

Carbon Black is available on the BMW Canada web site now. Looks like just the USA can't get it (yet?).

They should keep some ///M colors exclusive to Ms

I like Carbon Black a lot - they should have never allowed this on the 550

+1 Had this color on my E39! I love the color, but I am sad to see it on a non-///M car, although I think they have offered it for non-///M cars in the past as well.:dunno: Not sure though.
