In case you’re wondering what some of these colors look like on vehicles, here’s a link to the F80/F82 color threads:

Of course the brand new colors aren’t there, but British Racing Green, for example, is.

I might be down with frozen portimao blue...but it's not my favorite shade of blue.

Still hoping these release a silver option.

I know the feeling, I had a Fire Orange F80 for 2 years or so, I went from loving it, to loving it in cool pictures that I’d taken, to just plain fed up of it in the space of that 2 years.

Now I’m 14 months into San Marino Blue, and it still blows me away, and gets compliments left right and centre.
Sometimes these loud colours are best left to other people’s instagrams.

I might try a frozen color myself if I don't go Individual. I've never owned a frozen ///M, so maybe it's time to give it a try.

I like the look of the frozen colours, but also like a car to shine...

Agreed...I have a feeling I may just need to pony up for individual...

Since Silverstone or a decent silver isn't available, I might have to go IOM Green over Aragon (if it's available)

I went to the Seattle auto show today which was pretty sh*tty but BMW had a lot of cars on display and it offered some interesting observations. Since this is a color thread thread I’ll start to say that this year it was a Donnington grey X3M that had my eye in terms of colors. Last year it was a Marina Bay blue M5.

Why can’t BMW just make these type of excellent shades of colors standard colors on all Ms? It would save them time, cost and us the frustration of having to deal with the lack of great color shades on some models.

The X3 is far from the prettiest shapes/design of BMWs, for me it’s closer to the bottom but since the color plays such an important role it made the car outshine others.

Another observation was regarding controversial designs per this forum and the general public. My observation, they aren’t controversial at all. During the hour or so I spent around the BMW area the busiest cars to get access to was:

1. X6 M50i
2. X7 M50i
3. BMW 745e
4. M5

Least busy car, I literally saw no one approaching it. It was the only car no one looked at. Portimao blue G20.

I hanged around the X6 and 745e a bit longer to listen to comments. Not one mentioned the grill. And honestly it didn’t look out of place...

Interesting observations, and while anecdotal, they are telling. I think we all - referring to the types who spend time on automotive forums - tend to think that we represent what the masses think, feel and believe. Often we are wrong.

That's not nice at all.

Wonder where they got the shade from?

I meant that the colour wasn't nice. But neither is the Prius ��

I was thinking the same but I am a little worried that frozen has jumped the shark... at least to my eye... the oxide gray is high on my list right now but am yet to see the other new colors (isle of man?)

I think the Ford and Toyota lime greens are too bright. I'm considering Birch Green in the future because to me it's loud and bright but not too bright considering its hue. Usually I get sick of looking at loud colors pretty quickly but not with Birch Green at all.

I, too, was thinking of IOM Green with Silverstone leather or a gray or silver with Individual brown leather. I definitely want to try something new.

I’m hoping IOMG will be a launch color so there is a chance I can see it at one of the VIP events or at a car show. I’m curious but I have to see any green color IRL before ordering that’s for sure. One of my E36s was Oxford green and was quite nice but likely darker than IOMG seem to be.

I'm hoping that IOMG is similar to one of the Porsche GT3 greens. I've seen the color pictured below in person on a GT3 and it is a very good looking color on the right car.

What are the M specific colors for the G series?

We had Austin Yellow and Yas Marina Blue for launch colors and still had Silverstone and Sakhir Orange as more M specific colors.

Also running out of F1 tracks to name colors after.

Seems like it will be Isle of Man green and São Paulo yellow.

Yeah, that’s a good example of something I would need to see IRL. I like that it’s not a flashy green but the shade need to be seen properly since from the pictures I’m kind of on the probably not side of the fence.
