Valencia Orange

I see the most popular color on this forum is Mineral Gray. I got mine in Valencia Orange - I just love the color with black interior.

Anyone else?

I'm pretty sure we did a poll and White was the most popular followed by Black.

Once you vote Valencia Orange will be well ahead of Mineral Grey.

If I didnt get Le Mans Blue, Valencia would be my choice. Absolutely love that color. It's just *loud* enough, but not over the top. Love how it looks with the Sport Package wheels, too.

If the orange were closer to International Orange (like the original X-1) I probably would have chosen it instead of Alpine White. Then again, BMWs always look good in white.

I frequently get compliments on the V.O. It's an eye popping colors that shimmers in the sunlight. There isn't another vehicle on the road with that color!

If I ever got a X1, the Valencia Orange is what I'd get. It's def my favourite.

Yes- the color is what sold the car! But damn they're nearly impossible to find. My special order left Bremerhaven on Tuesday, scheduled to dock in Baltimore the 22nd. If I take delivery on March 1st, it will have been exactly 6 weeks from the date I ordered at the dealership. Pretty decent time service, I'd say.

I have mineral grey and love it, but.....if I could do it all over again, I would get the VO. Very cool color, but not too bright or obnoxious...

I had the choice of the two, and went with LeMans Blue. I thought I would get tired of the Orange after a few months. Personally, I find all the standard colors of black, white, grey, silver, etc. boring.

on that vehicle, the orange would have been a bit much. Only certain vehicles can get away with outrageous colors- typically smaller vehicles. Kinda of like people- just because something comes in a person's size doesn't mean they should wear it. Can I get an AMEN?

oh come on now, be honest!
You know deep down your 335is would have gotten jealous of the orange.

I think the X1 was made for the Valencia Orange, but I was not. I wish I were

I also liked VO. It was a bold choice - wife wasn't sure - but I persisted and now she is happy. I don't like dull and dark colors because of safety and visibility issues, but VO is passes that test as well. Coolest color on the roads right now.

I couldn't agree more. My special order arrived at the dealer today. But it isn't mine anymore- I fell in lust with a 2015 corvette stingray over the weekend, married her and thats how the story ends
