Neither... It's Black Sapphire. Great color. I've had two BMW's that were this color.

Cream is a pretty accurate description of the color. BMW makes a lighter color closer to true white but it's not available on the X5. I saw it on a 6'er. Here's a shot of the exterior with 20's.

What color is your exterior?

I've got the Oyster with the Platinum Grey. I would describe the Oyster as more of a cream color. I initially thought that it would be more of a white, but I'm pretty happy with it. I think what really does it for me is the Oyster on top with the black on the bottoms (doors and carpet). The contrast is really eye catching.

Awesome... You have the same combo that I ordered Does the Alpine White look good with the Oyster? Any regrets/issues with this color choice?

No regrets on color combo. It all goes real well together.
