Odd as it seems, I think that's the name of the color: "Silverstone Metallic." I believe "Ice Blue Metallic" was offered by BMW in later model years on a number of models; may even just be the same color with a new (more descriptive) name...

If the 2001 M5 is anything like my X3, it's got the paint color name inscribed on one of the strut towers. Lift the hood and see if you can read it there (although you may have to do some rough translating from German...).

X3 w/6-speed & Sport Package:
A sports sedan disguised as an SUV...
