Oy! (IMO, of course everyone has a different opinion).

Porsche has a yellow but it's not quite that, ah, shall we say, pungent.

I'm looking at the Sakhir Orange that BMW seems to be throwing out there as a bone to people wanting a more colorful car. I'd have to see it in person.

When I bought my first car (a 1971 BMW 2002) I always wanted the orange but the dealer didn't have one in stock so I "settled" for Riviera Blue. I was hoping the Sakhir would harken back to that color (don't remember the original name) but the 1971 orange was more a creamsicle color, Sakhir seems more red-orange. OTOH, wifey wants a car the same color as her 1980s orange Chevette, and Sakhir seems to fill the bill.

Fine by me.
