Citrin Black exterior...opinions??
 
Hey all...the Individual color Citrin Black is sort of growing on me...I know that the BYO is the least reliable indicator of a car's color (another Individual color I love that is available for the M6 is called Rubinschwartz Metallic and while looking so-so on the BYO looks stunning on actual images of M6's I have seen)

Has anyone seen or found a source of M5 images in colors other than blue?? Also, Champagne Quartz Metallic, Amazonite Silver and Moonstone Metallic are also intriguing colors..

SO...any opinions???

Cheers,

Danke to both of you!!!! I have now seen enough images to want to choose between Citrin Black and Azurite Black Metallic paint...both are pretty sexy :thumbup:

not a bmw individual color but I sure do like this - would consider a repaint of my car IF it had a black interior (I love it) :

Actually BMW does have an Individual color very similar to this. Atacama Yellow. However it looks disgusting imo.

actually I believe BMW has two Individual yellows - the one above and Phoenix Yellow - and I agree.....disgusting (but I do really like the "shade" on the car in the photo that I posted above)

2200+ mile road trip completed just yesterday - parked next to (and chatted with the owner) this older Ferrari (a 355), which has the Ferrari Yellow - which is close to their newest shade

(the pic was taken in the parking lot of the General Palmer Hotel, Durango, Co - which overlooks the rail station of the Durango/Silverton narrow gage RR - which we rode)

sorry to hijack the OPer's thread - I glad he's decided on the color for his new car

I think Citrin Black and Champagne Quartz are both stunning colors. I like Citrin Black the best, but it is high maintenance to have a black car.

Also note all these individual colors are now available on regular F10s as well as part of the Individual package. So if you want a unique M5 color you should get something else.

Bimmerpost has lots of threads with different pictures of these colors. I recommend you check that out.
