Colours

Or Colors for most of you guys. . I've just taken delivery of an F11 in Tasman, mainly 'cos the wife chose the colour. I was pretty unsure, but actually it looks really good, kind of a grey green, which changes shade in different lighting conditions. But having wandered through a good many of these threads, it doesn't seem popular. How many of us are out there?

Not a colour (notice spelling) available here in Canada in the m-sport and the m-sport appears to be more popular (or maybe I just notice them more). It does appear to look nice in the configurator but I have not seen an actual car in that colour.

I have an F10 in tasman and really like it. Color appears very different in different lighting. Also you dont see too many around.

I am jealous about the F11. I have an E61 and would swap for f11 if bmw ever sells them in USA.

Tasman would have looked good with M Sport. So would Havana or Mojave. Sadly, I didn't get to choose either one recently when ordering my 535i.

Yeah the M Sports here don't have the option either. I'm surprised BMW don't sell F11s on your side of the pond, as they're very versatile. I switched from a Discovery 4, which was fantastic, but the electrics system was a different story - one failure after another. But I needed something with more space than a sedan.

US(North america) spells it as color, there are many countries who spells colour..

That's something I can't seem to get my head around. BMW USA is called BMW North America but it is only the US. BMW Canada is called...wait for it....BMW Canada. Anyway colour/color, night/nite, z/z (zed/zee), whatever eh!

When you referred to US(North amercia) were you implying that only the US situated in North America spells it like "color" and the rest of the US (Hawaii, etc.) spells it like "colour" or did you mean that all of North America spells it like "color"? For the record in Canada it is "colour" and we take up a pretty big chunk of the continent.
