Thanks for the pics. Probably the best ones I've seen of SB. How did it look in real life??

Great! Actually the pics give a very good impression of how it looked in real. If you look at the photo I took standing in front of the car you can see that the color looks a bit more pale on the right, where daylight comes from. But overall it looked very good, especcially in combination with the oyster interior, the moonroof and the privacy glass

And everyone misses the really obvious comment ... if Martha Stewart wants it then why the heck would you!?! I may be from the UK but I still know who/what Martha is Now if it was Katie Couric...

Got to say I was incredibly impressed that the colours just seemed to come out in the sequence they were ordered. I'd always thought that this impacted on build date (today is white, tomorrow blue etc).

Can anyone tell me what colour Regis and Oprah selected so I can avoid those too?

Thanks for the pics? Do the pics reflect the true colour? Did it look good in the flesh??

Rcluff,

I saw a 2011 X5 in the showroom with the SB color....looked pretty darn good to me, so confirmed my choice of SB for my X3.

Hi Dave,

When did you order and when do you expect to receive? Trying to gauge our lead time compared to other Canadian orders.

Best Regards,

Hi darskiczd,

Sorry for the late reply. I ordered mine on Friday, January 21st (just met the production date entry) for delivery at the end of February; so roughly 5 weeks. That said, this is my 2nd BMW (bought an '11 Z4 last year) and the estimated delivery date was off by just under 2 weeks, so am expecting this car to be off by a week or two possibly.

Dave

This is a color (for me) that's nice to look at but not own.

Sparkling Bronze is difficult to photograph but is a great color in person. I spent a while playing with the settings in my camera to get this shot.

Sparkling Bronze

I could not be happier with the sparkling bronze color. It definitely sets my X3 apart from the standard silver and beige vehicles on the road.
