Lol I've been using the uk configurator online and I now speak fluent British they've got some different standard equipment than the US though...im so sad we don't get the HUD and carbon fiber interior trim standard and they do. Im now anguishing over wheels for an iomg G80 at 3:24am lol I go through phases of liking the blacked out wheels better...seems like a better match to the black side skirt and carbon fiber roof

I did the same with the Canadian one, and they have something like an "ultimate" package that just adds everything for like $20k+ CDN lol

I love Tanzanite but it's a bit too dark for what I'm looking for! It appears to be a very complex color and will definitely make the orange interior pop! But I'm not sure if it'll show the carbon fiber exterior package well, or even look good with the gloss black accents.

In the video they say it's close to San Marino Blue but all pics I've seen whether out in the sun or in a parking garage show it as a very dark color. Almost carbon black in certain conditions.

I'm definitely getting the Orange interior whether I go with Brooklyn Grey (like I'm planning to), or if I switch to Tanzanite Blue or Isle of Man Green (if I fall in love with those when I see them in person).

I've had Red interior BMWs for 16 years now: E46 then Z4MC then F30 and I want to change to another powerful color so Orange is exactly what the doctor ordered!

It is vey dynamic! In overcast conditions, it will look dark blue but more vivid than something like imperial blue. In direct sunlight it pops and is awesome, IMO. Not as bold as San Marino Blue but definitely exciting; there's a lot of flake in the paint. Here's a few more pics of it with one I took of my car next to a San Marino Blue M6:




In the last picture, you can see the blue is still pretty strong even under dark skies.

Hera Mica FTW. I have Tanzanite, and it's very nice when clean, but HM is a better version of it imho. SMB is also tough to beat, but I like the subtleness of HM

Tanzanite and San Marino are far apart. Tanzanite is a complex color, but shines so nice in the sun. Out of the sun it resembles more black. Itís definitely a unique color.

Since Joe already has a Long Beach Blue M2, I think the Isle of Man Green with Silverstone is the best option.

Of course, the Tanzanite with Kyalami Orange leather is beautiful. That would be my top pick!

It looks to me to be very similar to Aragon Brown in my M5 Comp (which I love)!

Agree that Hera Mica is AMAZING IRL.

I didn't have time to watch the whole video...what color combo did Joe choose?

the silver 825m wheels look better on the iomg full stop. Orbit gray I don't know. The 826m look terrible.

I came across this video on the weekend ...saw it was 50mins and passed. I like Joe's reviews but I mostly skim through them because I find them too long.

Isle of Man and orange for me.

BG with the orange will look hot! I like that combo also. I was stating black on black for the first go around but I have to say as time goes on and more and more comes out Im really starting to open up to some of these color combos!

I think BG with some brownish colored interior would look great.
