Citrin Black exterior...opinions??

Hey all...the Individual color Citrin Black is sort of growing on me...I know that the BYO is the least reliable indicator of a car's color (another Individual color I love that is available for the M6 is called Rubinschwartz Metallic and while looking so-so on the BYO looks stunning on actual images of M6's I have seen)

Has anyone seen or found a source of M5 images in colors other than blue?? Also, Champagne Quartz Metallic, Amazonite Silver and Moonstone Metallic are also intriguing colors..

SO...any opinions???

Cheers,

Actually BMW does have an Individual color very similar to this. Atacama Yellow. However it looks disgusting imo.

actually I believe BMW has two Individual yellows - the one above and Phoenix Yellow - and I agree.....disgusting (but I do really like the "shade" on the car in the photo that I posted above)

2200+ mile road trip completed just yesterday - parked next to (and chatted with the owner) this older Ferrari (a 355), which has the Ferrari Yellow - which is close to their newest shade

(the pic was taken in the parking lot of the General Palmer Hotel, Durango, Co - which overlooks the rail station of the Durango/Silverton narrow gage RR - which we rode)

sorry to hijack the OPer's thread - I glad he's decided on the color for his new car

I think Citrin Black and Champagne Quartz are both stunning colors. I like Citrin Black the best, but it is high maintenance to have a black car.

Also note all these individual colors are now available on regular F10s as well as part of the Individual package. So if you want a unique M5 color you should get something else.

Bimmerpost has lots of threads with different pictures of these colors. I recommend you check that out.
