What colour is your E60 M5 going to be?

Was wondering as the release is getting near, there is some talk about two tone pain...if bmw do that i would go for the ferrari 456 look that was posted here a few weeks back..light grey ontop of dark grey..or if they are doing normal colours iw ould seriously consider imola...or anhracite...arrrgh its too hard!

all the best

Well since we obviously have no idea what colors would be available, I'm going to just say that I'll be picking a color other than Lemans blue! I love that color but having it once was enough!

I want some unique colors to distinguish the M5 from the regular 5ers AKA like Le Mans not necessarly that color but like that.. its dark and OMG Soooooooo Nice and its only for the M5. Not sure if I want Lemans in the E60 if its going to look like the new 7. the shape will just kill it.
