Arctic on a grey day

Hi Boys,

this thread was very usful for me while making up my mind concerning
the colour.

It all came down to two cars. One was Monaco blue and the other one was arctic. I went with the arctic, because it had the sunroof. But I would never have guessed how beautiful this colour can look in person, when looking at the little sample in the brochure it came across so fugly.

This is why I post the following pix. They where taken on a grey day in northern europe, opposed to the majority of sundrenched photos from California here.
Enjoy:



**greenish grey hue**



** more blue from the rear*



** bluish grey sky **



** material study **



** reflections **



** arctic **



** sports-seats, half - leather, brushed-aluminium **



** the whole combo **

If someone is interested in getting a more detailed view on anything, just ask.
Have phun everyone with these gorgeous cars as long as gas is still "cheap".

yours mo-i

I seriously cant decide, my budgets <$1500

I've never had a car of this color before, and have no idea what would look good.

white, grey, gunmetal?? 18" 19"??

please help!!
Hyperblack CSL's look great on Arctic... They make the car look so much more aggressive, along with the m-tech of course!

(This is not my car, but I could not find the thread again.. and I had saved it on my computer a while back )

Gives me a perfect idea of what mines will look like, minus the 162's and the ZSP ride height.

Thanks!

Thumbs up Gotta get some blacklines

pcarela,

Great interior color and rims. I wasn't sure about blacklines on arctic metallic, but your photos convinced me that I should get them.

Here's my (new to me) 2006 330i (6MT, Sport and Premium, tan leather with burl walnut):

When I was shopping, I was looking for a black on black E90 (to replace my black on black 2004 325i), but came across this car. The photos in this thread convinced me on arctic metallic. It's amazing how the color changes in different lighting conditions.

Blacklines, I dislike the white and when you smoke the rest it stands out even more.
