Since they put colored calipers not every color looks good with them.

I think I am most likely going to end up with classic AW or MW..... They will look great with blue calipers and cf roof.

Well blue has always been my first choice, but...

Smurf Blue? For an M? REALLY?

Given a choice I'd go with one of the elegant dark blues from the 4-Series pallet but with what I've seen so far probably the mineral gray. The blue isn't as bad as the jaundiced yellow or horrid orange but its still an eyesore.

^^No need for my 3 mile commute to the golf course doing 35-45mph plus I like the blue color over the gold.

Strongly considering silverstone. I've always loved the color, and it is an M-specific color only (Correct me if I'm wrong!). Here in the northeast where road grime is ever present on the roads in the winter, it will be easy keeping this car look clean. I've always loved the bluish tint to it as well. On it's own it doesn't stand out, but when parked next to another silver car you can really see a difference.

Leaning toward Azurite Black with either Silverstone or Amaro Brown leather and Carbon Fibre trim. Would also consider Carbon Black paint, if available.

Ruby Black

I saw a 640i grand sport in Ruby Black at the local dealer and it is gorgeous. When I placed my order/got in line and put down deposit, that's the individual color I requested.

Just in case, my dealer asked for $2000.00 + an additional $5000.00 for the individual color. We came to an agreement in writing that if the msrp of the car I ordered comes in over $83000.00, I can back out and get 100% refund. Not knowing the price puts me at a disadvantage in making the deal. Probably wouldn't be getting any discount anyway. I am trying to get the 2yr. additional warranty. Most likely won't get that either.

I initially voted austin yellow even before they revealed the color thinking that it might be similar to yellow from concept. However, it doesn't seem to be as good looking as concept color.

Now I am deciding between sapphire black, mineral white, sakhir orange, and yas marina blue...

From the rumored color palette, I am also thinking of going Sakhir Orange with Sakhir Orange extended leather. Not having dash and other trims in orange might make it less like a tomato. I hope this is not a color you get bored of easily

Me too.

From the M6 videos and pictures that I saw, sakhir orange looks like burgundy red in low light condition. With sunlight, it starts to show orange metallic color mixed with red color.

I really want to see this color in person as my order will most likely be sakhir/sakhir M3.
