Arctic White new color?

Are you guys sure this is a new E92 color? I hope so, but when I looked at the Visualizer, it was in German, and the paint name came up "Arktis" which is exactly the same color name as the E90 color.
Anyone with inside info? Thanks

I hate to say it but BMW still has a considerable ways to go in improving their color choices. Very disappointing! With the intro of the 335i, I was hoping that they would have their act together re colors - but they don't. They better hurry up though, because I am waiting for my E90 M3 to arrive.

Maybe this has been answered somewhere else, but I checked the US Ordering Guide and for the 335i it shows up as A34 Arctic Metallic which is the same as the E90 code.

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 (many of the pictures in this thread) 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. (And although the configurator pictures could be considered to be "girly", the real thing is a lot different.)

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

Yes, I think that any that come through for a while will be in and out quickly so it would be sheer luck to actually see it

The colour looks ever better on the E92 than the E90.
