+1 makes me think of two buck chuck or something. On the other hand, it may look great in person. Bronze doesn't look so great in the configurator but in person it looks understated and elegant.

The other day I saw an X5 with the color kinda like the Barbera red. It looked very nice.

I was a bit confused because BMW currently doesn't offer X5 in that color. Maybe in the previous generation (the style looks somehow like the current gen).

This is a more mature red color, IMO more suitable for the 5.

I was excited when I heard the e90 was going to get it (late production) and then when I saw it...yuck...not sporty at all...should not even be called red....jeffnj hit it on the head...chickpurple....

Just my opinion however....

I would place my order tomorrow if it was. Awesome on every BMW (esp. the last gen X5) I'm drooling on my keyboard over that pic.

Me too. My sales guy says he has checked every resource and no new colors will be in the US until the 09 run. I'm not sure what that means, other than I am stuck with Deep Sea Blue which I think will look cool, just not as cool as Le Mans Blue.

Since real life pics haven't been posted yet :

I've only seen it in person 2 or 3 times, but it was in my opinion less purple than most of those pics.

Hey Adrian,

Thanks for the shout-out and for the pics You da man! I just still can't decide what to do It looks "different" but I can't tell if it has more hues of blue, green, or gray

Is this a special order car or an inventory car? Just curious.

Thanks again...regardless of my indecisiveness, that car still looks great!

Not so attractive as my deep sea blue 528i. The deep sea blue looks great on sunny day and at night (looks kind of purple too).
