Well, I have been patiently searching for an 04-05 M3 in Carbon Black/
Cinnamon now for 5 months, with no luck. I'm looking for a fully
loaded model (PP, CWP, Nav, HK, Xenons, 19's, etc); either SMG or
6MT. Anyone here have or know of one, please let me know. I know
what I want, but I guess that's not a good thing if you can't find
I feel your pain... I have been looking for the same thing(but for a
longer time) but in JETBLACK. you and i want the same thing but no
luck. I have been down south and up north.I want a MANUAL though..
have you been to any of the websites for M3? they have a lot of good
stuff in there.
Not the most common color combination, plus full-zoot options. Lotsa luck.
Try Roundel and Roadfly. You might want to settle for a different color
combination. BMW Nav is mediocre, I'd avoid it.
Other option is a new 335i coupe. Very close in performance and better ride
quality. Then you can custom order the exact car you want.

Talking about color combinations, I am completely astounded by the
number of new BMW buyers that choose gray leather interiors.
Gawd! They look like complete shit after 50k miles or less. Don't
people do *any* research before they plunk down their money?
I would never buy a BMW with that light gray interior.
Well, he said cinammon ... pretty nice looking. I've got Sand, but it's
surface dyed vice vat dyed and shows its age early.
I'd guess that 80% of all US bimmers are silver, white or black. Most
popular interior color black.

Agreed, except there is no BMW interior color cinnamon. It's called
"Natur" I think, and I happen to like it.
Sand leather and Black leather seem to fold up much better than the Gray.
If you look at the used cars available on line there is a predominance
of nasty gray interiors.
Silver over black is the classic german car color scheme. I'd take that
Yes! That is the color I thought they were calling Natur. I guess
Natur was a bit more brown, less orangy. You are right./ That is a hot
looking car. But, maybe I'm just getting too old, but those 19" wheels
seem a bit too large. The tires are like rubber bands. I'd be afraid
to drive that down the street for fear of bending the crap out of them.
Still, they do look nice.
You need to move to where somebody takes care of the roads.
The ONLY time I've hit a hole in the road that caused any sort of damage at
all was in a construction zone where they neglected to put a plate over a 3
~ 6 inch ditch that was cut across the road. Had I not been exceeding the
speed limit by a significant margin, I would have seen the fast-approaching
ditch, and could have made any number of adjustments to preclude the direct
Having said that, I think that 19s on a 3 Series is a bit much too. I like
them with 18s, and mine has 17s.
Actually, I do *live* where they take care of the roads. New Hampshire
roads are surprisingly well maintained considering the harsh winter
weather. But my home state is small and I often have to venture south
of the border into Massachusetts. With all the taxes they collect they
prefer to patch the potholes rather than repair the roads. Some of the
worst road surfaces in the world.
