The color sure doesn't flatter the M5, at least not in this particular photo. Without the sun, you don't see the metallic and it looks like a pile of brown doo doo. Of course, with the sun, it might look like the animal ate some metal shavings before pinching out this particular loaf.

Someone recently described the colour as looking like "a three day old chicken satay" :confused:

Is there a duller, plainer, less exciting, more boring color that exists on this earth? I really want to like it, since it goes best with the brown/olive interior. Not for me.

Hopefully Sepang looks better in person than in the pics. Maybe on a 7er but not on an M.

Having seen both M5 and M6 in sepang bronze, the color looks significantly better in real life.

Like many of the BMW colours, you really cannot appreciate the true character of the colour until you see it in the flesh. I'm sure it is truly a stunning colour, the pics I have seen so far just seem to portray it too brownish.

I didn't care for these pics either.
But I've seen nighttime pictures of a sepang M5, and it looked, IMHO, stunning.
This confuses me. Stunning at night, and ugly the next day... Sounds like a bad night out. :p

:crying: Why?? That color is terrible IMO. I am yet to see one in person, but all the pictures of it make the car look so bland. M5's shouldnt be bright yellow or anything of that sort, but that color makes it look like an unwashed Kia. Not enough class for that sort of car.
:cheers:

My opinion - FANTASTIC - in fact the one i'm ordering. Looks very understated, very classy and dare i say it, unusual.

OK black or silver is a better choice for resale but i'll be keeping this bad-boy for a few years so it's Sepang for me. Plus it seems most are going to be black/silver/blue so i like something different. And black has to be the ultimate pain to keep clean, here in NE Scotland the roads are a mess all through winter with the salt, a black car becomes almost white within a couple days of washing it and that's no joke!

Plus - and my last excuse - Sepang will go well with Black leather (i forget the actual colour name!) i don't fancy Black/Black or Black/Light Grey so it would have to be the extended leather in Red and i ain't keen to pay £5k just to change the seat colour!

Just noticed too a clear disparity in opinions so far - North America seems to hate it, Europe seems to like it! Go figure...

Each to their own after all!

Cheers,
David.

This was the colour at the Melbourne Motor Show. I liked it a lot. It isn't brown, it is a definite bronze. Classy. Didn't order it though.

I like it a lot , too. BTW, " bronze " or " titanium " colors are in the the next trend in exterior car colors - according to the color research people who advise car companies .

Quoting a recent article on car colors :

" For 2005 vehicles, silver accounts for 24.1 percent of sales, according to statistics compiled by Power Information Network, a division of J.D. Power and Associates. The next runner-up: black, with 16.7 percent....
So how long will the consumer love affair with silver cars continue?
... experts believe silver could be losing its appeal.
"I would say it's starting to decline a bit," adds Cynthia Leighton, product planner for color materials and finishes with Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc. According to the company's recent market research in Los Angeles, "Silver is not the No. 1 choice for future buyers," she says.
Next up? Many auto makers are having good luck with shades that incorporate silver with a little bit of color -- ice blues ( Silverstone II ! ),..and even warmer, golden-toned hues ( Sepang Bronze !) .
Others believe that greys -- deeper, darker metallics -- will eclipse the lighter silvery shades. "Grey offers more dimensions, from warm to cool," says Leighton. "It's a fresh look and an alternative to silver."
And blue is gaining fast. "There is a whole trend in blue and purple," says Webb.( Interlagos Blue ! ) Of the 21 new shades his company is currently developing, "at least half are blue or have some evidence of blue in them. "
UNQUOTE


The MBZ CLS recently had a special $8500 option cost " Launch Edition " with a special color called " Indium " ( not Iridium ) Grey , which in realty is a " bronze " color, but people won't buy a color that has that word, so " grey " it was per their marketing folks , lol ! I've seen two at my local MBZ dealer out in bright sun and it's a gorgeous color and " browner " than these following pics show .( Kudos to BMW for calling " bronze " by what it is .)
The" indium grey " looks a lot and behaves like the sepang bronze pics I've seen where it varies by angle of light from greyish brown to brown :
