In Reply to: Best COLOR for E39 M5 ???? posted by Paul T. on November 18, 1999 at 19:17:53:
Iīve seen a few M5:s i diffrent colors and i have to say my favourite is 416 Carbonblack . Itīs a dark metallic color.. black with a bit of darkblue in it. Looks very special.
I have never seen a color like that on any other car than the new M5.
The color is smiliar to 303 Cosmosblack but with the small amount of blue in it it looks much more elegant.
This color i exclusive to the M5 no other BMW models are available in this color.
Which color to choose however is a matter of personal taste.
Personally Iīm not that crazy about 397 Anthrazit. I have seen it and it didnīt like I thought it looked kind of boring.
Looks very much like the old BMW color 310 Fjordgrau .
I would go for 416 carbonblack itīs awesome.
But you have to see thatn color in real to understand what it looks like. In pictures it only looks black.
If you want a car that every one turns their head around when you drive around you might want to consider 405 Imolared looks very cool much better in real than on pics.
425 Silverstone is also very nice but perhaps a little bit to similar to 354 Titaniumsilver.
