I didn't believe him at first knowing that the online configurator didn't allow it and figured that when he went to place the order for the vehicle, he would call me with bad news. But he immediately showed me a car which was already at the port that was a Carbon Black m-sport 528. I was, to say the least, pleasantly surprised.

btw, I think ordering a Sport Pack deep sea blue vehicle and then changing the bumpers to m-sport will be the cheapest/easiest option.
Thanks for the info. It's good to know that Carbon Black is indeed available on all of the 5's, although it's much too dark a blue for me personally. However, it's scary to think that the BMW configurator could be wrong... I thought it was sacrosanct !
