High Def pic of Glacial Silver

Just thought you guys would like a true depiction of what Glacial Silver looks like in the sun. I asked my SA to take a HD picture of my car in the sun and he came thru. Looks much better than any pictures I have seen so far.

Love it! man, I have been trying to find a Glacial Silver that was tinted for the longest time. Im probably going to tint an even 30-35% all around. Are you pretty happy with your color choice?

That looks sharp. I may go to silver on my next car. I haven't had a silver since 2006.

Love the color. Traded in a 09 and I went thru the lot and just was amazed by the color! The only thing I'm missing is the power. I had a 750!

Looks great, I was VERY close to getting a near identical 7er in that color. I think next time I will go that route!

Silver with Black leather is such a classic combo . Now for the important question, does the car have the wood shelf?

The Titanium Silver on the E65 was one of my least favorite colors, but this Glacier Silver on the F01 just WORKS.

And I agree, all she really needs is tint. Congrats, throw up some more pictures when you pick her up.
