In the US, I don't think that color is available. I can't find it on the BMW build site.

It doesn't show up on the configurator now because it won't be available on builds that begin before January. But if you try now to configure a 35d (which now won't begin production until Februrary), you will see Imperial Blue as an option.

That's too bad. I would've chosen this color with my white interior.

Hmmm- the BMW international "visualizer" includes Imperial Blue:

Maybe if you guys in Canada and the UK check directly with your dealers they can confirm it actually will be available to you come January?

It's true. You learn something new everyday. However, Confugurator on that site only gives you X1 X3 and X6 not the one I want
