Question SURVEY: What's your favorite color on a 5GT?

Given these cars are rare, it's hard to develop a good sense of what looks good on one. Since you have one and/or have seen some in person, what do you think are the top two exterior colors for the GT?

[GUIDELINES]: Include the following:
1) whether you are male/female
2) if you think MSport matters for the color
3) which color you have and was it your choice, someone else's, a consensus

[OPTIONAL]:
1) What's the worst color.
2) an exterior/interior combination you've seen in person that you think is killer

Neptune Blue with Nappa Black interior. Thats what I have. When we ordered it, my wife talked me into it over Space Gray. Really glad I made the choice. 2 years later, still love it.

Neptune Blue, Space Grey and dark graphite would be my favorite. Interior would be black. I personally have the all white and it gets dirty too easily.

We just ordered a 535i in Orion Silver Metallic with Cinnamon Brown interior. I guess would be our favorite.

Neptune Blue w/Venetian Beige interior.

I also think that Deep Sea Blue w/Cinnamon Brown interior would be a beautiful combination.

First off, I meant Black Sapphire metallic/IVORY (not oyster) black interior....my bad. Just a very classy look. For what it's worth, I was first looking a Black Sapphire/Cinnamon Brown....the CB looks great on the BMWUSA build site. But I actually got to sit in a 2013 GT Black/Sapphire w CB and the CB looked nothing like it appears on the website. Instead of more brown, the real color is more reddish...think football or basketball color. And with the Dakota, it actually looked cheap...like the cheap Spaulding outdoor Basketball. I was really disappointed....that's when I started drilling down on the Ivory/Black, and after sitting in a GT w that combo, I was hooked.

Just a warning to those considering the CB....please know you're getting a reddish color. And it's not that great w the Dakota...

I've only heard that "reddish color" said about the Nevada Chestnut when I was shopping the X3 and not the Cinnamon Dakota. Are you sure it was in a GT?

Oh yes, absolutely a GT. But maybe my reddish is another man's brownish....I guess it really is a personal thing.

My GT was a BMW Canada executive car and it is Black Sapphire Metallic (BSM) with Black Dakota leather. I could not choose but it was too good a deal when compared to a tricked out X3 that I was considering.

That said, I am partial to the black interior for practical reasons and, in addition to the BSM, could happy with the Neptune Blue or Charcoal Grey on the outside.

The Black/Oyster interior looks sharp but a light colour like that means extra work in keeping it clean. I am just not a fan of Cinnamon Brown.

Dark graphite with cinnamon brown. The interior is sharp. Not as hot as black on sunny days but dark enough that it is easy to keep clean
