    I didn't plan on getting it, but had seen it on a website. I went ahead and ordered the launch color which is that really light gold color, but it just seemed unexciting to me. Then one day I was driving by the local BMW dealership and I noticed a bronze/gold color 7. I wheeled around and went to check it out.

    Sure enough, it was Milano Beige. It is actually an old color, just renamed. I really liked it as it was sporty and classy all in one. I plan to ditch the wheels on the car at some point as I think they screwed-up in the wheel selection for this car, but that's just me. I'd like something with bigger and fewer spokes and more lip, but nothing over 20.

    The color in full sun is gold, in shade it's bronze. I liked it so much I called my CA and asked if was too late to change. He said the car had passed the paint stage and I couldn't get the color changed. He made a few calls and managed to get me another build, and I was able to change the color. The launch color is real popular so I think they just said what the heck, it's a 100k car let's give the guy the color he wants.

    I really like it a lot. I did look at the mineral white and came really close to buying it but the wife talked me out of it since we already had a white car in the garage. The saddle interior is just stunning in person. I really love the color combo.

    My car has not made it home yet, but should be here by the end of October. I have now seen two of them on two different dealer showroom floors in Dallas.

    Check the 7 forum and I'll post some pics there for you.

    Cheers~

    BMR2009...can you post some larger pictures of your Milano Beige. I was looking for that color and I have yet to see one in person. I ended up doing the Mineral White Mettalic..my 2nd choice. It looks awesome in the small pictures. How do you like it now that you have lived with it.
