Anyone have Arctic with Terra leather? I can't imagine this choice being very popular, but I am actually considering it. I really like both colors...but, have not been able to see a single example of the two together. If anyone has pics, please post them.

I have that exact combination and really like it. I think it goes perfectly. What do you think.

Looks Very sharp! I like it a lot with the aluminim trim. I think that may make my decision a lot easier. Any more pics anyone?

Ahhh, Grasshoppa learn well. When you can snatch the key from the dealer's hand - it will be time for you to go.

I've been considering Arctic Metallic (actually for an E92, but since I'm not liable to see one in that color for a while, I've been looking at E90s). After looking at several, I've come to the conclusion that pictures (such as in this thread) can be very misleading and that the configurator is dead wrong. If you're thinking about this color you MUST see it in person in all kinds of light. After you do that you'll either think that it's much better than you thought or (as I did) that it's definitely not for you.

The first two cars I saw looked like a light gray/silver somewhere betwee TiAg and Space Gray. I must have happened on the third under just the right conditions because it was truly a chameleon (as another poster mentioned). As I walked around, it changed from a light blue to light gray to an iridescent light green tending almost toward khaki. This is really unique and gives you a car like no other on the road.

So if you spend time looking at this color, you'll either find something special that you hadn't considered before or be thankful you didn't make the mistake of ordering it.

Cool

:rocks: :rocks: :rocks: I just got my e90 330i yesterday in arctic. I have to say that color intruiged me at first and so I researched it (and that's how I found this website) and absolutely loved it. Then just a few weeks ago I began to have my doubts in favor of black sapphire but I'm very glad I did not change my mind. The color is absolutely awsome especiallly at night.
Pics to come

:rocks: :rocks: :rocks: oneshare325 thank you for help.

To repond to jimonier I actually never fully saw the color in person until AFTER my car was waiting for me at the dealer. It was a gamble I know, but like I said, I minimized the risk!

Here is a photo I took today in a light drizzle. It shows the green/gray Arctic has in these weather conditions and notice how different it looks next to silver.

Cool Ammmmmazing Arctic

This color is like three colors in one. Although I was never able to see the green hue myself, the grey and ligth blue shades are beautiful.
Here are some pics at dusk.

Very nice

I think, from all the posts that I have seen so far, including mine, that the first side shot you have portrays the arctic in the best possible light.

In fact, I think it is almost better than the ones on the bmw website.

Congrats, it looks beautiful!:rocks:

my suggested design enhancements: reflective tint (not mirror, and not regular- ask for the ceramic tint) it looks awesome! especially with arctic!
