Favorite color???

Hey all,

Which color do you like the most?? These are the final choices if I get a new M5 later this year..#1 is Alpine White, #2 is Black Sapphire, #3 is Sepang Bronze and #4 is Space Gray....whatever exterior color I choose I will get be the Black Nasca ventilated leather and wood trim will be Olive Ash....

Living in south central Texas like I do, I am a wee bit wary of the black (though I think it looks the most SEXY). Also, I do not like any shade of blue and the Silverstone and Indianapolis Red are not an option

THANKS!!!

Get the Black or White. Other colors can't match them both.

BTW will you be getting a new one or a used one?

Black is not technically a color but it is by far the most stout! Just remember, black equals lots of washing to keep it looking good.

If I could do it all over again, I would pick black. Everytime I see one on the road, I kick myself for not getting it.

i hope you have seen the olive ash wood in person. we had someone order a new M5 with that wood and he brought it back the next day because he just couldn't handle it. if you haven't seen it in real life i would really do everything i could to see it for myself prior to placing the order.

and for your color choices: white...or sepang

Dang, someone disliked the Olive Ash wood?? I think that the Olive Ash wood was the same that was in my mom's 2000 X5...it was nice there....however, I am really starting to like the Madeira Wood over the Olive Ash..

If you can handle the maintenance, definitely black. If you aren't really into detailing, get the space gray.

Well, when talking about the wood, it all comes down to your interior color choice. Olive might be a bit too agressive when you're getting black leather. That said, it is outstanding in combination with lighter colors like Silverstone (feel free to check my 'garage-pictures'). So far, I only received compliments and I would pick it again - no questions asked.

When it comes to the exterior choice, I'd go for the grey (since black and blue are not an option).

Black looks nice but gets hot in the sun shows more dirt. White is nice too stays cooler. I would take either. I have had both colors BMW.

Re: Favorite color???

I just returned from Bimmer fest, I have an Indianapolis red metallic e60 M5. While I was there I learned that red is a very uncommon color. I only noticed 1 other M5 with the same color. Good luck with whatever color you decide on.

Black. For me, white would be a distant second.
