2011 Color Choice - Final Runoff!

So Alpine White and Platinum Gray were the winners from the color poll. How about a final runoff, and to add a bit of interest, I'm throwing in Deep Sea Blue metallic in the mix!

Alpine White


Platinum Gray Metallic


Dee Sea Blue Metallic

Blue wasn't even part of your last poll.
Since you are gonna be making new polls with new colors inserted, I will just wait for your FINAL FINAL FINAL poll, when its down to only ONE color. I would be more than happy to help you out.

I agree that blue looks awful with black trim... Without the trim - totally different story. So it is a great color ONLY if you are willing to paint black trim same blue color.

Otherwise I go for PG, and I am not biased

I would go for Deep Sea Blue with Oyster. That is what my heart wanted but would have gotten too dirty with two little ones!

I don't know about your local dealers, but the ones around here have very few X5's on the lot, and they are usually Space gray, Titanium Silver, or Jet Black.

With those tinted windows, that SAV could double as a hearse.

got ya, I wanted to like DSB as I love blue cars...however I was very unimpressed when I saw it in person...

I'll probably go w/ Alpine White (or Carbon black if I get an M-Sport)

Performance vehicles should be black or gray! The only SUV that looks good in white is the Tahoe, as far as I'm concerned.
