New 2014 colors - Jatoba Metallic and Mineral White

Any opinions on these two new colors?

Thoughts on Mineral White vs Alpine White?

Also, what is Jatoba Metallic? Does anyone have pictures??

Thank you!

Mineral is a great color - I drooled over it at Die Welt when it was an Individual color on a 750Li. Less yellow than other whites - kind of like white beauty cream or ice cream.

Thank you all for the comments. This helps. I may try the Jatoba color - seems to be unique.

Mineral white looks nice. It appears to be a pearly metallic white where as Alpine if non-metallic. I wonder if Jatoba will come with m-sport. The last "brown" did not.

If you mean the ZMM M Sport package, you can see in the ordering guide that B65 (Jatoba) is not listed for M Sport. If the ordering guide is right. It does list 416 (Carbon Black) as being excluded and then later says it isn't.

"ZMM requires ordering 300, 416, 668, A52, A83, A89, A90, S34, X02, X04, X08, X11 or X13"

then later:
"ZMM requires ordering 300, 668, A52, A83, A89, A90, S34, X02, X04, X08, X11 or X13"

I think I saw in the ordering guide that you can't have Jatoba with M sport. Too bad. I would have liked Mojave on my 535 M sport. Here's what it would have looked like:

Whoever makes these decisions must be colorblind.

Deal breaker for me. It is too bad, I do like Jatoba and Mojave.

One is for 528, the other for 535 and 550. If I read it right, it means that only a 528 comes in Carbon Black?!?!?!?

I really like mineral white. Reminds me of that balloon metallic white on Lambos.

Brown is making a comeback. I have seen a lot of new brown cars on the road.

Funny though, white, black and silver have been the mainstays for decades. Everything else just seems interim.

Unless I am reading this wrong, but it appears that Mineral White is also not available with the M-Sport package?
