Mein Auto: '08 550i Sport (ED 7/07)
New member, new 550

New member here. Thanks much for all your help over the last five to six months while I've been lurking around, gathering as much info as possible on how to negotiate for and outfit my new BMW. Pre-ordered an '08 550 Sport about a week and a half ago for a European Delivery scheduled in July. Only one problem... still debating on color. So, if you have a chance, swing over the the E60 forum and give me your opinion. Thanks again.

Congrats on your '08 550 order. That's going to put some zip in your step. Don't know what colors are available on the '08 5er, assume similar to 3 series. Pretty much can't go wrong with any color, except for green which looks simply awful on any BMW that I have seen. Space Grey is a classic, but much overused, IMHO. Silver or Black are, also IMHO, the best choices. Interiors will be very personal, but the coral leather really looks hot.
