Ya, because for a lot less than $5000 you could repaint it!!

Its very classic, but no.

Green is one of my favorite color, but its just don't look good on cars.

Does anyone in this site even have one? I would like to see some
real life pics.

It's not out yet. Available for order yes, but too early for anyone to have one.

I don't believe anyone has it because they started producing them this month. I think green or hunter green looked good on SUV's.

I had an E34 (540i) in Oxford Green, and would wish it were any colour other than the green. As many have pointed out, its just not a German sportscar colour...

I used to have a Fern Green E46 Touring with beige leather - it looked great.

I moved away from this when they changed to Boston green as, like many BMW 'colours' it looked almost black.

I think the new green will look fine (the configurator colour bears no resemblence to the true colour)

They've opened up their customer market to attract the duck hunters.

Definitely not for me.... I would take any of the existing colours over this one.

On the upside, it does provide the E90 with something different. Who knows, it might have a huge following once people get bored with the existing colours.

Just as I've always wanted a bimmer, i've always wanted a car in british racing green.

Has anyone actually *seen* the deep green on a real car, not on the configurator or on a paint swatch? Seems like lots of people are saying "ew gross" before they've ever seen it.
