Arrow (E90) Official Mystic Blue E90 Thread

I've been trying to imagine exactly how the E90 would look in mystic blue. I got pics from the BMW configurator for different models in that color, but they are not very consistent (see below). I think it would look good in any case, but I wonder whether I should really get it before seeing it. Opinions?

Also, would mystic go better with gray or with beige interior? Thanks in advance.

these are le mans blue pics (not mystic blue), but I think they're similar and both look much better than monaco blue

My e90 will be Mystic Blue with grey interior. I don't care much for the beige, with any exterior, because it has too much bright yellow in it.

On Order:
2006 330i Mystic Blue/Grey/Walnut
Manual/Sports/Premium/Cold/Nav/Comfort Access/PDC

The wait is killin' me!

You guys are lucky.. I love this color. Here's some more of a mystic blue e60, this one with beiege interior so you have an idea. Doesn't look bad but I still prefer black or grey with this color I think.

IMO...

Beige = too bright yellow
Black = looks awesome, but too hot in the summer
Grey = looks pretty good and goes well with Mystic Blue
Terra = looks sweet, but not sure it fits with Mystic Blue

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's difficult to make a "bad" decision here.

Your comments made me feel better - I guess I needed some reassurance about my choices.

Mystic Blue is a great choice so feel reassured. Now regarding the xi....I don't know CT at all, but your fun factor will go up without the AWD, especially with the manual tranny, IMO. I originally was going to get the AWD too, but later punted for the sports pack with a set of good winter tires and rims. The xi won't be a "bad" ride, just not as fun.

Back in the old days I would go with the Mystic/Natural Brown combo. Now that NB is discontinued, I think Terra would go well with Mystic

Wow that color is the most exciting E90 color I've seen. What a mistake not to put this out at first instead of monaco blue.

Now you have me thinking maybe I should get Terra instead of Grey with my Mystic Blue order. Hmmm...

I think Mystic looks great with Beige. That's the combo I am ordering for my ED in October.

You'd have to wait until Oct for delivery then, since Mystic Blue doesn't go into production until Sept.

That looks fantastic! I'm definately leaning strongly for the grey interior too at this point.

Thanks.
Yeah, I think grey is the way to go with blue, although I do like tan a lot too.

The carbon fiber front spoilers give the e90 some aggressive style to it. Can't wait to see the pics when you get it.

I agrree did you see EVOS4's pics in the photo gallery? Gives the car such a more aggressive looking front. Too bad CF only goes with black or SG.. but painted it would look hot too.
