I was fortunate enough to change my color from the launch color, Cashmere Silver. My CA made a few calls and managed to get me another build with this color. I am grateful as it just has a little more zing to it. I have since seen three of these cars on local dealer showroom floors. It changes tone; in direct sun it seems gold, in the shade a bronze color. I like it. :)

Thank you for the pictures. Looks great, especially at night. I have yet to see one in my travels throughout DC and it's suburbs. Appreciate it.

Why, oh why, can't you get a sport with Milano Beige?!?

I had the kalahari beige exterior in my 7, it got lots of complements. The other nice thing is you will not see many others in your color. Looks great!

I understand it's gonna look different in different lighting, outside vs inside, sun vs shade, etc, but you've got two pictures of it in the same building where the color is completely different. Which one is more accurate?

They both are. Neither photo was altered from its original color. The camera is a Nikon D700, shooting with a 50mm, 1/4--very fast, very accurate and sharp as a razor.

Yes, even in the building it looked different depending where I stood taking the pictures as the light reflected differently. Here's what it boils down to; strong direct light, a light gold look, overcast or indirect light, a bronze look. And I agree, it is very, very close to the Kalahari Beige color.

I've owned nearly a dozen silver cars and just couldn't do another one. I didn't want black as it's too hot in Texas, and white is already in the garage.

I really like the multi dimensional color that this car carries.

I got the sport package, but I understand it changed in 2010 model. I'll post more pics when I get the car.:)

Thanks bud. That's a sweet ride, but just a tad to expensive after you add all your favorite amenities. I think I priced one out at nearly 130k when I added my "wanna-haves".
