Well whatever light I saw it in person wasn't too flattering. It looked greenish yellowish brown.

One dealer I spoke with recommended against Sonara for the same reason; used different words, however.

Sonora Pics

Looks like I'm the first OWNER to provide pictures of a Sonora E90 (325xi). If you look carefully at the interior shots, you'll see that I painted the bindings of the floor mats to approximate the color of the upholstery.

That first shot reminds me of Arctic in the sunset, pretty.

Photos were taken on a property overlooking the Hudson River in Westchester County, New York. Waited until almost sunset before taking the pictures -- a technique frequently used in automotive photography.

Isn't he cute?

I think this "insult" to peoples choice in color/color combination is uncalled for. That is the reason why BMW gave choices for individual taste. And if they can afford it why not.

For a person that sells BMW's and drives around in a "rolling refrigerator" color you have NO CLASS at all. You should be selling KIA's and I think that's where you will end up or maybe in some USED car junk dealer.

You are an embarassment to all BMW Client Advisors.

You should apologize to all the Sonora owners.

Sonora owners UNITE!!!

Here a few pics of Sonora 318i I found on a Polish web.

The colour is quite nice although it's not my taste. But for people who prefer BMW as luxurious cars it's perfect. And it's cheaper than the Brass Metallic from Individual palette and looks very similar to it.





I only hate these wheels. They're awful

Rare

Thanks for the kind words. According to my dealer there is not one 335i Sonora sedan yet built! I am not sure if thats true but I thunk it will look great especially with blacklines , tint etc. I do not want the boy racer look I was over that years ago. By the way the other car is a black/black 550 so i don't hate the traditional BMWW colors just tired of seeing them everywhere. I will post pics around Christmas. Cheers

At a personal level, I am definitely not a fan of this color, but I believe that it has its potential market somewhere. heh, I have never seen it in Vancouver.

Great! I actually like the color, is nice and rich irl. I've seen libartsguy's sonora/terra combo and I must say its got potential. Your car will definitely stand out in the sea of black, silver and grey E90s.

I think you will like it IRL. I had 1.5 months of anxious waiting and picked it up last friday only. Ordered it without seeing it in IRL as I was curious with all the "insults" it was getting. I was even ready to forget about my deposit if I didnt like it on delivery time . But guess what it looks nice with the beige leather. Not sporty but elegant .

Damn, this car rocks:rocks: even if its colored pink .
