Placing order for M5

I am in process of ordering M5 via ED:

Color : Sakhir Orange Metallic
Interior: Sakhir Orange / Black Merino Leather
Wheels: 20"

What you all think? Is this a good color combo?

For my taste the orange is so vibrant and special
I would not do it again in the interior
It's a bit too much
I've seen one at Shelly BMW
I would have preferred a black or beige it dark brown
Good luck

These color decisions are so personal, go with your gut. I would not do orange interior (or ext) on my M5, but that is just a preference.

Even if I liked orange, I might choose a more conservative color for resale. It is a personal decision. Great car though.

Nice. Did they deal at all for an ED lease?

Yes, I got a good deal on it. I paid few over the Euro Invoice. It was lower than many other dealers in town.

Yes I can imagine will be long wait after I come back from factory. But it will be all worth at the end . I should get get it by mid June so I will have all summer to drive it ..

The BLUE calipers just don't go with that colour body, they need re-spraying another colour IMO.

I agree with .. Do we have a choice of other colors when ordering it or is this a only color BMW offers?

Do anyone know that how long it takes after getting production number. Because I called BMW of NA and they said my car is scheduled for May 24th for production start date. And they also said it may change. I am not sure what they meant by that because my order was placed on March 5th, 2013.

Awesome color choice ! I have seen this color choice in person and it is awsesome. Almost picked it for mine but went with monte carlo blue, but wouldn't be unhappy with sakhir orange. Definetly the most unique and rare.
