Ordering an Individual 640GC need help deciding which color

My dealership has informed me that there is one slot open to order an Individual GC and I decided to take that slot. The thing is I don't know which color to pick , I was going to pick frozen bronze but found out that 2 people already ordered that color so now I'm not sure it I want it or should I pick another color. I have checked all the available colors and I like them all.

Any suggestions?

P.S
My current car is a vermilion red 640i.

Well, if you want to go lighter I would go Moonstone Metallic. And if you wanted to go darker, I would consider Tanzanite Blue. My personal favorite would be Moonstone is you are at all concerned about sun and hiding dirt. I also think it shows the character lines well. But in the end it is personal preference!

I have been in love with moonstone for quiet some time now and since I live in a country where it's always hot and dusty and moonstone would be the perfect choice but then I saw Ruby Black and fell in love with it.

So now I'm debating between Ruby Black, Frozen Bronze , Frozen Silver and Citirn Black.

If you are going Individual, Ruby Black is good. You may also want to consider Velvet Blue. I think Velvet Blue with Chanpagne leather would be fantastic.

Out of this selection, Ruby Black, then Frozen Bronze.

With Ruby Black, pair it with Champagne leather. with Frozen Bronze, go for Ivory.

I have settled on Frozen Bronze exterior with Vermilion Red Napa leather for the interior. I didn't go with Ivory White since my 640i has that interior and I wanted something different.

Not sure I like that contrast. I would imagine that the brown or champagne leather interiors would go better with a bronze car.

Color choices

I have the Tanzanite Blue on my 650i, very unique.
Here are a couple photo's. On a cloudy day it is black, on a sunny day very cool blue.

I'm considering changing my order from frozen bronze to tanzanite blue since in my country almost every car has a matte finish which made me think that it will stop being unique very soon while the tanzanite blue will stay unique.

These pictures makes me want it even more
