carbon black has a lil hint of another color in it, jet black is pure black. both are great colors, cb has a lil metallic look to it tho.

I have a jet black M3 - have seen carbon black in the showroom though and I don't care for it . . . it looks almost dark blue, like something is just a little bit off.

Carbon black has a little metallic look to it because it has metallic in the paint. This is why it has a silverish-blue hue. You won't see the difference between cb and jet black in pics. You'll need to see them in person.
