I am having trouble making a decision on the exterior color for my M5.

I have a Blue/White Viper GTS that has a color similar to the Interlagos Blue. It is a medium Blue in bright light with some purple but remains medium blue at night. It does not seem to have the range of darkness like Interlagos Blue.

I like the Interlagos Blue in the sun. but am afraid it is too dark/whiteish at night/cloudy days. I would love that Chrome Shadow, but it seems like that is not an option.

How about Sepang Bronze? My friend was at the M factory a few weeks ago and said that the Interlagos Blue was so-so, but Sepang Bronze was awesome. I have not been able to find many pictures of Sepang Bronze.

Some great "real world" photos of Sepang Bronze are the following, all taken by other esteemed members of the board.

Best regards,

I believe the sepang is more a clasic color and suits the 7-series more than a real sport car like the M5.

I will be ordering either silverstonII in & out or Alpine weight & red:thumbsup:

From the photos, Sepang seems to be a very understated color. Does anyone have photos of the Sepang interior ?

My god Spiroman's pics above is the car i'm ordering - Sepang + Black! Said it before but black/blue/silver IMO is too common, and i think it looks regal/understated/elegant in Sepang. Each to their own!!

Cheers,
David.

Sepang Bronze - Portland ?

One more combo that I have not seen is Sepang Bronze with the Portland interior and Walnut. Any board member have photos of this ?

Looks like the US ordering frenzy has started......too bad BMWNA does not have an online configurator yet.

There is a video of a sepang M5 posted on m5ftp.leaseweb.com. Its title is "e60_5_testrit_duitsland.wmv". It has been posted a while back, but if you are trying to determine if you like the color, it is a useful video if you have not seen it. See Enrico's thread at http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=56979 for details about m5ftp.leaseweb.com, and thanks again to Enrico for making it available.

My order is in for Sepang + Portland + Olive

Has anyone seen the Infiniti FX color Beryllium ? The Infiniti Beryllium looks very close to Spiroman's photos and I love the Beryllium.

If I could get the black wood, I might opt for the black leather. The aluminum contrasts with every interior color, IMHO. The grain on the olive wood is a bit loud but, the color compliments the portland nicely.

Re: My order is in for Sepang + Portland + Olive

I'm undecided on color as well and am curious about the Sepang Bronze. In pics, it does look quite good but sometimes I look at it and wonder if it might be too brown. Man, I wish they would give us chrome shadow (w/o the $20k charge :) How many of you guys have actually seen Sepang in person?

Not very dark (we saw it in bright sunshine), just shiny and uhm hot! :M5rev:
