one is metallic and one isn't maybe or it is the same color that they changed the name.

I was looking into that when I bought my Z4. To be honest I couldn't tell the difference between the two colors unless you get up close and get the light just right. Then you can see the "sparklies" in the Sapphire Mettalic. From a distance they both are glossy black. If you are set on getting a black one then I would recommend saving the extra money for the paint job and just gel the non-metallic black.

That's what I'm here for; sage, yet disturbing advice.

My first 745i was in the saphire mettaic. in the sun this car lloks like a dark mettalic grey. the jet (obsidian) black is just that. IMO the saphire mettalic is a richer color unless you are into the chrome rim scene then there is no substitute for jet black. hope this helps.

Thanks for all the info guys! I went to the dealer tonight and checked out the new 2004 and wow is that a clean looking suv, or sav i guess might have to order the car from the factory to get all the options i want but its gonna be worth the wait.... Here's a new question for everyone though...I was pretty set on getting Black exterior with Black leather, but at the dealer they had a Black Sapphire with the Beige Leather and it looked very nice. Anybody have any preferences or pros/cons? thanks guys!! God Bless!

I've got beige interior and I would definately reccommend black unless you like scrubbing every part that comes into contact with people (doors, shift knob, etc).

That's what I'm here for; sage, yet disturbing advice.

I have a 325 4-door Jet black, black leather interior, and 65% window tint. I LOVE IT. My father and a jet black 528 blk leather, 65% tint, loves it, my mom has a jet black Z3 with the tan leather, it is always looking dirty, even when it has been driven with the top closed. As you can see we have a small lack of creativity when it comes to color.

Just looked at them this weekend. The jet Black. is solid, and the Saphhire has metalflake type finish. Hope this helps.
