What the fuck?
Dude, I don't even post here anymore because I returned my e90 lease over two years ago but this comment is complete BS. I had to come back just to defend how truly amazing Arctic is and if you haven't seen it in person I highly suggest you refrain from making such remarks until you do so. Arctic is one of the most dynamic colors BMW has offered, shifting from gray to green to blue to silver depending on the light and it is FAR from mediocre or boring. As you can see from the photos below, the color is quite stunning and looks even better in person. Here is the breakdown of the color:

35% Pearlessant Gold
29% Brilliant Silver
13% Micro white
13% Fine Silver
4% Black
3% Laser Dark Blue
2% Metallic flakes MB799
1% Laser Brilliant Red
