2011 Color choice - Can't decide!!

Update: Alpine white and Platinum Gray took the early lead and are the two finalists... Vote for your final color favorite here:

--------------


I'm ready to order my X5 35i, but I can't make my final choice on color!

I think I'll be happy with any of these... Black interior on all.

Honestly- my favorite colors are those that aren't offered on the X5

Other than white, there really aren't any BRIGHT colors. All sedate stately colors.

Had to settle on Space Gray as my wife said "No" to white.

If you are going black, why not jet black? If you are doing black might as well go as black as possible.

Is the car garaged? How often do you plan on washing it? Is it a DD that will be driven in winter conditions? If so, say NO to Black!

My personal favorites are AW (Its what I have) and Platinum Gray, both hide dirt relatively well, but not as well as Silver of course.

I am really loving the titanium silver for just that reason. Hardly shows dirt at all, a big difference from my black Volvo, which shows every spec of anything within 5 minutes of washing.

have you ever tried detailing jb, only to find you must re-detail, and re-detail again? novels could be written on this scurge of a color.

Thanks to all that voted!

I've narrowed it down to Alpine White or Platinum Gray, and threw in Deep Sea Blue Metallic as a wild card!
