New E90 colors will be available

At the Denver 3AA they passed out a brochure that had additional colors that will be offered for the e90:

Barrique Red (A41) - looks like a dark red / burgundy
Ultramine Blue (A42) - darker blue (between medium and dark)
Sonara (A23) - mustard-bronze-gold
Deep Green (A43) - dark green

Doesn't sound like we are missing out by the sound of those colours.

Now, I would like to see that Blue as demonstrated by the Alpina B5 B3 concept.

Silver Grey would have been excellent choice too, but they've made it a special order colour or something.

Sonara is an ugly color. It's available on the 05 coupes.

I'd like to see the red and blue though.

This is Sonara / Sonora. It's a hideous color IMO (unless it's just the lighting in these pics, but I doubt it).

ultramarine blue (if thats what it looks like), looks very similar to estoril blue, what a great color for a coupe or ///M car!

I'd like to see them offer this color. Or maybe this is one of the colors that will be availble for the m3 since it's on the m6??

Both that and Carbon black are restricted to M cars or Individual cars

While Ultramine Blue looks good, I still like Sparkling Graphite!

If only Monaco Blue did really look like that color sample it woulda been a hit instead of being criticized by everyone.
