2011 Color Choice - Final Runoff!
 
So Alpine White and Platinum Gray were the winners from the color poll. How about a final runoff, and to add a bit of interest, I'm throwing in Deep Sea Blue metallic in the mix!

Blue wasn't even part of your last poll. :confused:
Since you are gonna be making new polls with new colors inserted, I will just wait for your FINAL FINAL FINAL poll, when its down to only ONE color. I would be more than happy to help you out.

here's a suggestion...head down to your local dealer(s) & check out the colors in person, pick the one YOU like best

Of the three, blue was my least favorite.

So I voted for it.

Simply amazing.....

JMK 11-15-2010 04:27 PM

I just can't get past the blue with the black trim...

alexmish 11-15-2010 04:59 PM

I agree that blue looks awful with black trim... Without the trim - totally different story. So it is a great color ONLY if you are willing to paint black trim same blue color.

Otherwise I go for PG, and I am not biased :)

Grey>AW for a truck

the kidd 11-15-2010 07:00 PM

I would go for Deep Sea Blue with Oyster. That is what my heart wanted but would have gotten too dirty with two little ones!

Color
 
No competition----PG, black interior and with the dark trim and dark windows...a rich combination. Good luck!

I don't know about your local dealers, but the ones around here have very few X5's on the lot, and they are usually Space gray, Titanium Silver, or Jet Black.

I voted platinum gray. But of course I'm biased :D

With those tinted windows, that SAV could double as a hearse. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

0428 11-16-2010 08:57 AM

Hey at least a hearse is better than calling the X5 a "truck". TRUCK........ LOL

got ya, I wanted to like DSB as I love blue cars...however I was very unimpressed when I saw it in person...

I'll probably go w/ Alpine White (or Carbon black if I get an M-Sport)

Unless the light hits it just so- the color appears to be black

I voted Black on the first round. I drive a AW M3 but a truck shouldn't be white so Hey I voted grey.

gogatorsx5 11-20-2010 11:18 AM

Performance vehicles should be black or gray! The only SUV that looks good in white is the Tahoe, as far as I'm concerned.

swamyg1 11-20-2010 11:30 AM

Here's my PG, love this color... It's was a little dusky when I took this.

Vehicle is incredible.

binobenzo2466 11-21-2010 12:18 AM

JMK 11-21-2010 04:57 AM
