I think a more descriptive name would be "champagne." The dealer didn't have an Orion Silver car on the lot when we ordered, so we made our decision based on a paint chip. We're happy with our choice.

That a nice color. Kind of like a lighter shade of platinum bronze.

So glad that other people think Orion Silver is a great color.

I chose it by elimination. Red= cops, white = non white (unless you wash it every other day in my experience) black = shows the dirt too much.

I love the "champagne" color even if people think it is dated.

I actually saw one the other day. So they're out there. It's really nice. At first I thought it must be a new color. Then I realized it was Orion Silver.

I wanted Mineral Gray, my wife wanted Glacier Silver. We thought about Melbourne Red for about a minute and decided it might work if we were 30 years younger -- so Orion Silver it was!

That's all that matters.

I got Liquid blue, the peeps said it was too girly but I love it, especially with the high contrasting sport line accents. I always get compliments on the blueh.

Just ordered a 320d Sport Line Touring in this hue with Coral Red interior. It's a build to order - apparently this shade is not too popular in NZ - so it'll be three months away. Will upload images when the car's with me.

Had to forsake the promo of a complimentary full M Sport package worth NZ$11k to go with this choice as I thought it too wild for a wagon and none of the colours that are available with the M kit appeals, though Mineral Grey came close.

IMHO, OS is a much under-rated colour as it shines up well and is good at hiding dust/dirt, if the experience I've had with my Cashmere Silver X1 is anything to go by; though many will label it Old Man Beige, which is fine by me as I am no spring chicken.

Best of luck with your new car when you get it. In my case, after two silver cars, while I really like the look, wanted a change and the Orion Silver fit the bill nicely
