That's not the first time they made that mistake. The photos on the UK Build Your Own show a LHD.

For sure, it has some interesting textures, particularly seat stitching, the dash w/ alcantara and the piano black inlay - clever but not combinations I would make.

Would have to see the Atacama Yellow in metal. Curious about the name Atacama - wiki came up with a desert, which looks more redish yellow from the photos so BMW definitely took some artistic license because the paint looks like a mustard yellow. Not bad but does make the car look a little smaller than say DSB or red - not quite as classy I think.

Overall IMHO the package has a certain class that might appeal to some people but I think it would look dated rather quickly.

Is it an 35i or 35is?

True, but was partly my question - is the special model based on the 35i or the 35is?

The photos would tend to say either one or maybe both?

You are correct that the pictures are not conclusive regarding the special model ... it could be a 35i with the 35is mirrors (let's hope not )

It's coming to America too. It's the Citrus Yellow package, ZMY. The exterior color is Atacama Yellow (B21) that is only available it this package as well as piano black trim. Scheduled for September production. Mirror caps will be yellow with the 35is though not silver.

i like the interior, but only if the exterior was black, also the other thing missing is the stitched leather dashboard and top of doors like my car, i think it makes a huge difference
