I actually saw two other 228's last week. I saw a silver base model the other day and my car's twin today. Pretty cool.

Took delivery on Friday and had a blast over the weekend! Really happy that I went with MDB, don't understand why there isn't at least one more car with this color in my area...

Do have any front 3/4 view or side views...trying to decide if I want to order this color...I am getting track pack so I think it would look even better on a slightly lower car. Thanks!

You can't get this color with the Track Handling Package option. Check out the video I posted a couple posts up. if That doesn't help you decide then IDK what to tell you. The way this color sparkles in the sun is like nothing else.

Thanks...and you can according to the ordering guide and bmw site. track pack does not require m sport. Sport seats now standard. M sport is just for a body kit basically.

Huh. I guess I am mistaken. Still the best color I think.

Mine is ordered with the track handling package, so definitely available! Unless they changed that for the 2017 models...

And here are shots from the side.

Awesome, thanks! It's basically down to this and the brown.

This does not seem to be a very popular color but it is my absolute favorite. Here is my 2017 230i.

My 2016 MBM 228i. I traded a 2014 Sparkling Brown metallic 228i and brought my bronze TSW wheels over.

Not particularly clean but some views of Midnight with tint finished and the chrome window trim wrapped in 3M gloss black.

I plan on doing that with my chrome trim as well. Did you do it yourself or have it done?

I hired it out. Originally I bought a 3M gloss black window trim "kit" and was going to DIY. After watching a few yootoob vids I decided I didn't have the time or patience. Combined it with my tint guy who also wraps cars. He quoted $100 a side with my provided materials. I don't think he would price it that low in the future. It totally changes the look/feel of the car.
