2012 X5 Best Color Combo

Hi Guys,


I'm in the last stages of finalizing my order for a new 2012 X5. I have seen them in different colors and they all look amazing. I need help deciding which color combo to go with. I'm just wondering what would be the most striking color combo out there. For those that already got theirs can we see some pics........

I am sure everyone will state what they got is the best, and everyone's combo could be different.

The bottom line: any color option putting on 60K vechile is going to look great in some ways.

Really depends on what you are willing to put in for upkeep...

If you don't mind keeping it immaculately clean or if it will be a garage queen, Alpine White and Jet Black can look awesome, especially with all the black trim that you will have with any color choice on a non-M X5.

For daily drivers, I think Space Gray and Platinum Gray look great. Then Carbon Black and Titanium Silver.

My personal least favorite are both of the bronzes and the Vermillion Red, but other people seem to like those colors. Want to love Deep Sea Blue, but it doesn't look right to me with the black X5 trim.

For interiors, Oyster is my favorite on the garage queens, Cinnamon on the daily driver.

I am not sure if you are getting the M PKG or not. I think it really looks great with the painted trim vs the plastic trim ,but my favorite is the Sapphire black with either Tobacco or Cinnamon. Mine is actually Saddle ('10) If you want to add a little spics the Ferric Wheels are a great touch.

If you really want a stunning black color which one is it in your opinion: sapphire black or jet black?

To me the Sapphire (mine) would be my choice. I love the look of Metallic paint vs a regular paint, but it depends on one's preference.

A perfectly polished, swirl-mark free non-metallic black (Jet Black) is hard to beat... But very hard to keep that swirl-free polish!

It's personal preference. I can't answer your question.

Can anyone post a pic of the X5 in Jet black or Sapphire black? As far as the "blackness" is concerned, which color appears the darkest?

Shiftinggeerz,

Your color combo looks very nice and stunning, is your leather upholstery cinnamon brown?
