Beautiful. I only wish Blue Onyx was available in the USA. I'm getting Interlagos Blue and am a little sketched out about its vivid color. I'm actually considering a repaint at a local custom shop if I can't handle the tone.

What an amazing car you have there!... probably my favourite M5 on the board ive seen so far. I love the Caramel interior too! :M5thumbs:

I wish Individual packages were available on the M5 in canada right away...??????
I would probably get the exact same colours as you have...

have fun!

Three step process:

(1) Meguiars Quik-Clay
(2) Zymol HD-Cleanse
(3) Zymol Vintage glaze

It seems I am the only one here that doesnt like the Blue Onyx color,
I like either a bright shade of blue(like estoril) or simply black ( like carbon), and blue onyx is neither
Still jealous though:haha:
Maybe looks better in person

It looks a lot better in person. It's hard to capture the colour on camera, especially the cheapo camera I use. From what you say I think you'd prefer Interlagos Blue which is a lot brighter and somewhere between Estoril and LeMans.

Onyx looks different under various lighting conditions (much like Carbonblack); at times it's almost black, but under the sun it's a deep rich blue - the last picture gives you some idea of this.
