Seaside Blue Metallic m850i

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted and getting back to somewhat normal, gave the car a bath and took some pics of my individual Seaside Blue metallic m850i.

Thanks. It's actually the wife's car so the shade of blue suits her perfectly. She is coming off a Yas Marina Blue M3 and wanted something that suits a female driving it daily...hence all the bling on the license plate frame. I still get the weird looks sometimes on the off days I actually drive it to work. Lol.

From what I was told by one of the sales guys at my dealership is that there are only 2 BMWs in this color ever made...both here on island. This was the one the customer originally ordered but BMW messed up on the build so he didn't take delivery of this one and instead ordered another one which they built correctly for him.

Absolutely stunning and I'm sure the wife is a happy camper with the M850i.

Some closeups of the color in the sun. Depending on the lighting there is actually sometimes a purple tint to it.

My wife has actually barely driven it since we got it since she's been working from home since the start of COVID. I think I've actually driven it more than her. Lol.

Same here as with COVID-19 our cars have been mostly garage queens. I finally got to clock some mileage in the M850i with the drive to San Diego and back. Now it will sadly be a garage queen once again until my detailer's mobile service washes it on Saturday and I take it for a spin afterward.

Missed this one initially but know the story all too well as someone is driving around in my first 2020 M850i order thanks to BMW messing that one up as well. Honestly, they messed up the 2nd order but my CA went above and beyond to ensure I ended up with what I wanted including wheel swapping the rims on the first order to the 2nd, full shadowline and carbon fiber mirrors on their dime.

Thanks. But I think it's a lot lighter and a totally different shade than sonic blue though.
