I have the same color combo with the bronze metallic and tan interior. It's great and fairly uncommon.

My wagon is Platinum Bronze as is my friend's 535i. Although it's not a common color, it's quite similar to Cashmere Silver which is popular on the 1 series.

Enjoy!

Tom

Our '08 535xi is platinum bronze. I really like the color because I don't get tired of looking at it and it's also easy to maintain.

It's always cool to have a unique and rare color. It looks great!

I'll tell you a story about a friend of mine (and fellow BMW CCA member) who ordered a BMW through European delivery some years ago. She bragged that the color was "the only one in the U.S." upon delivery. He was quite proud of that and told everyone that she knew...at every opportunity. It was indeed a unique color.

I took the opportunity to "deflate" her bragging rights and took out a "prank" advertisement in the Roundel "for sale" section, offering TWO cars of the same color for sale...husband and wife combo. I used my phone number. You guessed it...SHE was the first to call me and ask how "we" had imported these cars with this "exclusive" color. I explained that it wasn't really exclusive as my "cousin," and three other friends in my city had also ordered that color. I then exposed the prank
