same for me. Saw it in real, and it has no real WOW effect actually. Carbon black is so much better, but so hard to keep clean and scratch free. Got it on current F15, but I want to replace it with this new G30 M Sport. When will new colors be available ?
This is guess work but based on previous model histories:

In the UK this year we expect in march the launch of M550, then later in the 540d. I suspect once those are out of the way we will get the full BMW individual palette

Bluestone v Sophisto

I've just ordered my new G30 530e M Sport in Bluestone, it's a stunning colour. My current 5 series Touring is in Sophisto, also a stunning colour. So don't have any doubts about what colour to chose, whatever you chose they are both fantastic colours. Bluestone looks grey in the flesh, not really a hint of blue.

Nah... everyone is probably going to get that and looks a bit to silver in bright light.

This is similar to what mine will be like

Bluestone 664 wheels and spoiler on the trunk although this was not on the option list with the car. Seems this is just glued on to it, when you pull hard you can just take it with you.

The spoiler is now included in the the m sport plus pack in the U.K. Not sure but I would guess it's been added there was well.

That's the darkest I've seen the Bluestone look. Looks almost space grey there.

What kind of spoiler is that? It's not the same as on the M550i.

Not sure, I haven't seen it. I just got told the price of the m sport plus pack was increasing by £145 from March and a spoiler was now included.

Maybe that one is the plastic m performance spoiler that has been sprayed. The one on the previous picture not the 550i.
