oof, now that this is up, I need to rethink everything. I told my dealer from jump that I would before atlantis blue. he told me it wouldn't be offered. when I pushed him that I knew eventually it would be available, he told me it would be a waste of money to spend $5k on paint on a car that will be behind the times on tech in a few years. I had an M3 on order before I cancelled and switched to this and it was going to be atlantis blue, so I need to just decide on if I wanna spend it or keep with the sunset orange.
And a matching red interior. Where does it specify the price for these things?
Also what is a climate seat vs. sport seat? Haven't we been able to get heated sport seats?
Also why does color change affect the lane change assistant?
I went through all colors and you know, I didn’t like that many. Le Mans blue, Melbourne red, Nardo grey all look cool. And the Isle of Man green from M3 is missing, that’s a real cool color. But BMW is already earning a lot on upgrades, paying a huge sum extra on a relatively normal car is a bit excessive I think. A custom paint and upgraded leather interior will buy you almost half of a classic M3.
I had preordered an atlantis blue M3, but with the chip shortages it kept getting pushed, and then I cancelled the order and got the i4 instead. the upcharge was $5k for individual paint. it was worth it for me with the M3 because I planned on keeping it for a long time. because of the quick changes to electric vehicle technology, I think I might not keep this one as long. so that makes it harder to decide.
