I've been obsessing over what color combo and build and I'm settling on M4 in Skyscraper grey with Tartufo, carbon exterior pack, and full leather standard seats vs extended + carbon buckets if I decide they are comfortable. I really want to like fiona red but every photo I see it just looks way too bright for me. So now it's a wait for xDrive and prices to drop... 2022?

On German, S. African, and probably other BMW sites. Supposedly this color will be available in US although that timeline is an unknown currently, most likely being with xDrive production 2022 model.

It's difficult to tell which gray that is because of the poor white balance but I think most likely it's Oxide.

I spent about an hour checking out a white M4, IOMG M4, and this Brooklyn grey M3. I've liked BG but thought it was a little dull. It certainly presents better in person and is a shade darker than almost all pics and vids. I really liked it immediately but I'm not sure it's special enough for what I'm looking for and I'm having a real hard time with color choices. I tried to capture the true shade in the first pic below.

I posted some good pics of Dravit in the other thread. I think this is most likely my final color choice based on those pics.

I like Brooklyn but its awful close to my glacier silver M240 with factory cf mirrors and spoiler. Ultimately Brands Hatch or Skyscraper are probably the best greys BMW offers but sadly we won't have them any time soon.

Probably the best photos I've seen, the first and last pics are amazing. Can't wait to see in real life soon.

Hi everyone, I am a fan from China. I am about to order the first BMW MPOWER in my life. I am very excited, and because it is the first one, I am very careful about the colors. But I haven't found any pictures of skyscraper grey. I would like to ask you if you have a picture of skyscraper grey?

I think the only actual pic is a that screenshot from the BMW video (scroll back a bit). Everything ese is simulated from a configurator.

I really want to see more images of Skyscraper in real life... the only glimpse of it I saw so far was in the 'M Explained' "Tyres" video. Right now, if I don't commit to IOMG, Skyscraper is 2nd on my list.

Brooklyn Grey Metallic in sunlight. Seems to be the closest match to what it looked like in person to me. Looks amazing with the black/carbon trim

I’m getting the BG. No doubt. Will look spectacular with carbon fiber bits.

People need to stop reposting these. Photoshopped other colors and NOT skyscraper grey or Fiona red interior.

There's a few color threads running, I've no doubt one for Skyscraper will come along as the images do

Here is a color edited photo of Oxide Grey from Instagram. I think this is very likely what skyscraper grey might look like. If you reference the color swatches from the first post, skyscraper is basically a white metallic flake to oxide's gold flake. This looks pretty amazing IMO. I literally cannot wait to see this color for reals.
