Default Midnight black or Eclipse Grey JCW?? - 31st October 2013, 08:50 AM

Morning!

I sadly missed out on a chance to buy a stunning midnight black jcw this week due however I have now found a couple more possibles.....

Choice 1 is a midnight black with red roof/mirror caps and lounge leather

Choice 2 is a Eclipse grey with recaro interior

Now I've always been a massive fan of midnight black but the eclipse grey is more unusual and has the benefit of the recaros!

Which to choose?!

What's the Price and spec on the two cars

Both are stunning colours so for me it would be down to which has the best options / price.

Both are 2011, black has 10.5k on the clock and is 16k. Chilli pack, six cd changer, lounge leather, auto climate control, Bluetooth, multi function steering wheel

Grey has 14.5k on the clock and is 17.5k, chilli pack, visibility pack, carbon dash, handbrake, gearknob, recaro seats,

Both fairly similar spec, I can't really see I'd want more on either! The black one is from an Indy dealer but a year warranty left and the grey is from bmw.

Very torn between the two!

Both cars sound great but you will need to check spec for spec on each car and price but eclipse grey seams to be a lot rarer on here but lovely colour

Choice 1 for us, but then again we may be biased

TBH eclipse grey has always been a bit of a marmite colour for us. Sometimes we love sometimes & sometimes we don't

As ever, only our opinion of course ...

Cheers for the thoughts guys!!

Think I'm leaving towards the midnight black tbh..... Always loved that colour and it still has the lounge leather which is great!

Hopefully go and see it on Monday

Black pros: nicest colour, cheapest, lowest miles

Cons: tough to keep clean shows scratches etc more easily, no recaros, slightly poorer spec, independent dealer.

Grey pros. Recaros are ace, better spec list. Easier to keep clean. Dealer car so should in theory be better than independent.

Cons; more expensive, more miles, probably slightly less wow factory on colour.

If this was me and even although I have a midnight black jcw I'd opt for the eclipse grey. This would be purely in better spec , recaros and dealer car.

Does the eclipse grey have a red roof btw?

Some interesting points! I think I'll try and see both.... I like the fact the grey is rarer- it's had a grey roof too. Do love the recaros!

I've never been overly concerned with spec, as long as it has a chilli pack I'm usually fairly happy tbh! Extra spec is obv a bonus though!

How flexible are bmw over the prices? Can I expect to knock much off?
