+1, if you are going blue, monaco is the blue to get. While we are at it, if you go monaco, you must get natural brown on the inside. The combo rocks.

I have Toledo Blue and prefer it over Monaco Blue. Color opinions are like a--, well you know what, everybody has one. There is no wrong, right, better or worse color on a BMW.

Toledo blue is nice, just not a popular color... I like it. Monoco blue is nice too, I think thats on newer models tho i may be wrong.

Good point and fair enough. I for one have a color that is not that popular. In fact I have NEVER seen another barbera red seven besides mine. Your Toledo looks good.

Very true, I don"t see many. I like the way the Barbera changes w/ the lighting. Coming from an Imola M3 I was tempted...but the Sterling won me over. Toledo & Monaco are fine, both look better with the Natural brown interior. Not a big fan of the Michigan Blue, but looks better with a nice tint job & bigger wheels.

Bottom line is that this car looks pretty good in all factory colors and they all recieve compliments. However, I would be the first one to admit that I bet most of the compliments are inspired first by the badge.

Now that yellow one in the other thread is a different story.

Ok not all true....It was a great car at a great price with the 100k warranty so I overlooked the color in lieu of a "bargain." The verdict is still out if I made a good choice, but the color I am happy with now. In fact if I we're to buy new I may even choose blue over my first choice, black. I've now owned both colors and black is a PIA to keep clean.

The Orient Blue is actually one of my first choices. Hard to find, though. Silver obviously next. They're everywhere . . . which I think is why I'm down with the Orient Blue. Looks ill on black rims.
