    After seeing met blue in the flesh, those photos are very misleading.

    It’s just your run of the mill navy blue. Very boring, but all the times I’ve seen bmws with the color have been pretty overcast with little to no sunlight, so maybe the metallic makes it look better /different in the sunlight? :dunno:

    I searched through some bimmerpost forums and this color seems to have a really nice metallic flake to it in the sunlight

    I think this is my favorite color. The yellow is not like I imagined and the red, although eye popping, is too much red when seen from the rear with the red tail lights.

    If you look closely its just black with light shining on it giving it a brown highlight. The supra only comes in black and red if you get the limited edition version.

    Is the only leather color available seriously black? And red only for the launch models?

    Gotta have more colors than that I hope...

    As of right now, that seems to be the case. I'm sure in the future there will be more colors, but this is what it took to keep costs down

    I dunno man, 49k for a banging i6 from Toyota seems good to me. The car looks outrageous and it’ll turn heads.

    Agreed. I don't know what some people expect. This is a lot cheaper than the A80, taking into account inflation. Shaking my head.....

    From what I've seen it is only a good price in the US. For example in the UK it is around £4k more than the Z4 M40i and a few thousand more than Cayman S as well. From what I understand the Supra is cheaper than both in the US.
