Took delivery of my 540 today (pictures)

Picked up the car today.... all I can say is WOW!! The thing is just heaven to drive (as was expected). Of course I test drove a well equipped 540 before buying, but when it's yours it just seems different. Sorry the color looks a bit dark, the lighting in the showroom wasn't the best for photos apparently - and I didn't get a chance to take any outside or interior shots yet. More to come...

Great color. That is the beauty of that blue. It's 3 different colors depending on the light.

That's right. I have the same color on order and its one of the reasons I picked it.

Congrats OP! You're going to love it!

I looks like it has M sport package. Imperial Blue isn't offered with the M Sport Package. That said I really like the Mediterranean Blue. Tried to get MBB but they wouldn't allow it at the tine. I am so glad they didn't, NOW.

I was leaning toward imperial blue when I first started configuring the car. Once I was set on M Sport I noticed the color wasn't available so it made color choice easy. It always amazed me how different the med blue looks in pictures depending on the lighting. Guess you need to see it in person to really know.
