Your photo link is not working. But the car looks great by the way. Nice choice on color, in and out.

Looks great! I've never seen that color locally, and it looks way better in your pics than on the BMW site. It kinda looks like the older Topaz or Mystic.

Thanks guys! I think Mystic Blue had some green hue to it, while deep sea blue has got more purple.

I agree - my next 5-er will be Natural Brown with whatever medium to dark blue is offered. The silver with black interrior is very conservative, but the natural brown leather is simply stunning.

Thanks bro... The BMW brochures suck... they don't even have any night pics with the cat's eyes... I mean come on, I can do better...
Seriously though, I think those hard headed munichens are geniuses, but still, they should hire a full-time team to monitor Bimmerfest because this forum is a marketing/customer service TREASURE that they could tap in for free!

No... from my experience, waxing leaves white residue in between panel joints and between plastic trim and sheet metal joints... I just wash it at the automatic car wash and pay extra for "Triple Wax", "Clearcoat" and "Rainex" treatment

I know they're called Angel eyes but look at this picture... what does it look like more to you? An angel or a ferocious feline?? I think they're angel eyes during the day and cougar eyes at night!!
