In Reply to: 416 CARBONBLACK ........ AWESOME!!! posted by Leif on November 19, 1999 at 11:33:01:
: 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.
Thanks Leif for the thoughtful response. Because the car is so special and expensive (for me at least) I want to make sure that I get a safe color. My vehicle won't arrive before next May so I believe I still have time to change the color from Avus Blue if I have doubts about it.
