I might be picking up an arctic tomorrow but am still debating on the color. I've only seen it in dusk/night, so it's always been gray. I have to say at night it looks great though.

My question is does it really look mint green (as shown in some of these pics) or does this just have to do with the camera/flash? I'm hoping it's never that green in person. Thanks.

Jesus... This thread reminds me of an article in Evo magazine about how bland Americans are becoming with their color choices. I truly believe this color should be submitted to the Subaru mediocrity campaign. Sorry to shit on most of you here but anyone with half a color-receptive eye can tell that the color blends in with the pavement, the concrete, the gray sky, and so on. Even with the green tinge... What the fuck?

Who crawled up your ass and shit in it? Guess you really are "psycho". You don't like the thread, go somewhere else. It is an "Arctic metallic" thread. And this coming from someone who is clearly obsessed with the color blue. To each his own.

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

Perhaps being gay would still trump whatever positive opinions you have about this color. The British have certainly caught on enough to write an article about it. Your rebuttal is something, something, blah, blah, laced with a little homophobia?

Juvenile... Is all I can say.

I am CERTAIN that it is able to be proven scientifically, that this color (at least in photoshop) has the most camouflaging / blending characteristic numerically. Want to guess what the three colors are in the current Army Combat Uniform? Gray, green, and tan. Congratulations, Artic Metallic has 66% of a camouflage pattern. MAYBE, and that's a big MAYBE, it looks stunning in person. I highly doubt it.

So, here I reiterate again: anyone with half a color-receptive eye can tell that the color blends in with the pavement, the concrete, the gray sky, and so on. I'm not telling people to buy blue, I'm just saying don't get into accidents by buying a color that shows up least in mirrors. Yes, gray gets lost in the human eye.; it's been studied. You think people give a fuck if it has "oh so many layers?" No. To the general public, it's gray. Period.

At least I have something constructively negative about this color. I don't go around just dropping bombs about how something sucks.

AMEN!! You inspired my Arctic Metallic Purchase and I loved every second I had that car!

I loved the color just at dusk or a gloomy day, a nice rich blue/gray

You're right... There are Hundreds of Thousands of vehicular accidents because the cars blend in with the ground.

Car accidents happen because people are tired, drunk, stupid, or not paying attention.

I just think this color is stunning. I get asked all the time what color it is and have had many offers on my car because the color is a little rare.
