: Bmw mag 5 series color?

03-01-2007, 03:37 PM
I opened my new BMW mag and saw a sport package 5 in a dark color. Someone on this site said it was carbon black, but nothing in the mag confirms this.

Any ideas?

It's Carbon Black. I had an e46 M3 in the same color and it's unmistakable.

Last paragraph.. 9th last word in the sentence.. :D

This is EXACTLY the car I want to buy in Oct 2007.. maybe with Black Leather and 6 speed... still have a few months to decide... it looks absolutely awesome... :)

I guess I will be buying a personal valet kit to keep this Black Beauty prisitne..

Between jet black and carbon, which looks best? I lean torards the carbon since it is metalic and may noy show as many imperfections. What do you think?

Both colors are tough. At least with Carbon Black, it's metallic and has a strong secondary blue hue. Swirl marks are painfully apparent with Jet Black. I used Zaino on Carbon Black every 1-2 weeks--basically detailed it like crazy and swirl marks were STILL a problem.
