I also have a grey MDX and must say I am extremely happy with the PG.
I am out of town for the next few days, but if it will help I can take photos of my PG parked next to the SG and/or next to my wifes grey MDX when I get home.
Let me know.
That's good info. Thanks. And of course, I'm always happy to see more pics

I totally agree with you. I think that SG on an X5 looks dull in comparison to PG on an X5. I think it all depends on the color/car combination. Just like not all cars look good in Ferrari red.

I just didn't want to argue the point above because I figured it is all personal preference anyways.
For me PG is two

Needless to say when it arrived I kept it but tell your husband he can always just say NO when it comes in.

Good luck!
Thank you JC; I sure hope it doesn't come to that, but it's a nice assurance. Thanks for the reminder there are always options!

So I just came back from Rallye BMW and there they have all colors of the new x5 ... I must have spend an hour there just staring at different colors of the x5 trying to decide which color to go with .. and I have again confirm that PG just isn't the color for me , its unique at first but doesn't have that long lasting look and most of the time its very dull to me and today was a sunny day . They had three X5 right next to each other waiting for owners to take delivery , it was Black, Deep Sea Blue and Alpine White. All three of them have Cinnamon Brown (which is what I am going to order as well) and the color definitely looks good. After seeing the PG on x5 in person I have decided to go with Black Sapphire but Deep Sea Blue is not a bad choice ... but since we already have a blue car probably stay with SB. ..

Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

I have been in doubts regarding my color choice during past few weeks since you cannot see DSB X5 on the lots yet (in my area) and it was sort of gamble. There is not that many pictures of this color on the web (in natural lighting). It is most useful to see this color X5 side-by-side with SB.
I like the DSB on your pictures, so it just eases the pain while I am waiting to see my new X5 on delivery day, hopefully in the middle of August. In case you have some more pics of DSB, please, PM me. Thx.

Good luck with your purchase!

Funny I was there today picking up my X5 from service. I seen the Blue X5, first time in person. Looks pretty good. Better than Monaco Blue that I had on my 335i

Did any of the three with Cinnamon Brown have Light Poplar trim? If so, what was your impression?
