Looks like Santorini. Love the colour but BMW are getting silly with all these minor % changes in shades.

Yep it is, it's got a few nice extras but with no CCB's it has to start with a 5 - Anything above that will be gone in 60 seconds....

Individual Paint tax.

I bet the carbon bits are £2.5k.

Not much in it with Santorini.

Personally donít see the point in having 2 so close, have similar thoughts on Mexico and Porsche riveria just pick one.

seems confusing but then the majority of the bmw range has went that way why not confuse everyone further with colours.

Is it a metallic?

Even if, Santorini edges it for me.

Saw this car last week at the dealership and it is very blue and not metallic. Some very nice carbon parts on the car but big money at almost £70K!

I don't get it. I can't imagine the BMW buying crowd insisting on a "colour just a shade darker than Santorini please. But barely noticeable." At least Melbourne and Japan/Electric red aren't only different shades, but different depths, too.

Having said all that, it does look nice.

It's all marketing driven - some focus group probably said it was nice
