I don’t know where the convertible sightings sticky thread went but that thread has a photograph of a Brooklyn grey car out in natural light. It looks more like dark silver there.

Interesting, I've not seen that. I'm so unsure about this color It's impossible to google as you get Brooklyn BMW silver cars; the mystery is making me curious

with these grays its so hard to grasp unless you see them in person. pictures can help but with some of these shades you really have to see it, bc of the various highlights some of them have in the paint. this is def one of the colors I want to see up close no doubt

How comes this is the Brooklyn grey ? It just doesn't look anything like it, it seems way more nardo/blue than the grey/green showned on the configurator, strange.

I was hoping for a Donington grey or Silverstone Metallic II (like my f82 was) available for the G80... guess i'll be going for the Frozen Deep Grey this time

If you go with the Frozen, will you immediately have a clear bra put on it? I’m intrigued by the frozen paint, but hesitant based on the problems that could arise given it would be a daily driver in the Chicago climate.

Looks lighter than Nardo, similar to the lime rock grey on the F8x CS. Not my cup of tea but it's badass.

Great find! Looking at the blue cars next to it the picture is heavily saturated but it shouldn’t impact grey as much. Looks pretty good but flatter than I prefer in a grey. I’m not a fan of now so fashionable primer look and this seem to have at least one foot in it.

The shade is just about perfect, If it had depth it would be a go for me. As flat as it looks here it’s barely a maybe.

I'm still interested to see it in direct sunlight since it is a metallic. I agree with Frankiebones above, it most likely looks similar to Lime Rock Grey metallic.

This color clearly needs to be seen for real, it's looked seven different shades in seven different pictures ha!

Yeah, this under a cloudy UK sky, I wonder what it looks like under a blue sky in sunlight, and just as importantly, at night.

I wonder if this is it in direct sunlight.. seems a bit lighter than I would've expected, though

This photo!....the body lines of the G80/82 are massive, and impressive for a factory car. These are going to be so worth the wait.

This. Really like the shade, but I'm afraid it's just too flat. But since a metallic color, I definitely have to see it in person.

Agreed. The rear fenders look MORE flared here and the way the outside of the tail light inserts into the body panel makes it look massive.
