Looks nice. Think it is an improvement over the old blue (personal preference of course). Thanks Mike!
I'm partial to the old blue... Then again, we prefer the darker colors...
Very nice! That was taken at the HPWCs behind the Corte Madera showroom, I believe.
If so, I might have to take a detour on my way home.
(off topic, and I'm sure this has been answered, but are the HPWCs there available for owners to use?)
Loving that Blue. Have to see what else they come up with in the next year or so to decide, but that certainly makes for a pretty car.
Same. I'm really happy they're starting to offer buyers something other than black, white, and red variants. I bet that blue looks sharp in the sun. You can get a feeling of it in the color transition on the front quarter panel.
Would love to see more pics of this color. Supposed to be finalizing my order this week, and want as much info as possible.
A green of that shade would be gorgeous. ..just sayin'. ..
I had decided against the darker blue when I saw a couple in Miami, dusty and dull looking. It didn't look good as a near-black and didn't look good as a blue in that state (for my tastes at least). So then I was solely looking at Steel Gray (love how similar it is to the Lexus "smokey gray mica") and the Pearl White. I knew these new colors were coming, but I wasn't excited based on the photos I saw. But this picture really speaks to me. This picture seems like a nice, deep metallic blue and would totally go on my list of colors. I guess I will need to see it in person because the design studio's images make me want to ignore the color. If it is like this in more lighting, this will be the color I end up with!
I like ocean blue more than the original, but it's still too dark for me.
Agree. Would like a second blue closer to what BMW had for the M3 around 2003.
Better than the dark blue but still a little bland
MC Red still my fav
Ocean Blue Comparison (pictures of both)
Just snapped these two pictures at one of the service centers. I like the new blue! But here's a picture of both for your viewing enjoyment:
Ocean Blue on top - Metallic Blue on bottom
My order finalizes today. I wish I could get a look at an ocean blue in the flesh. Guess I'll stick with black
I like it much more than the original. Though it is not a color for me. But looks very nice.
I do think the ocean blue is a neat color, but still prefer my original metallic blue
I think what I like about the Ocean Blue is that there's no mistaking it for Black. For me the Metallic Blue looks black more often then it does blue. But its still a very nice color
Obviously, paint choice is a very personal preference. The reason you don't care for the metallic blue (is it black or is it blue), is exactly the reason i love the color. It seems to have more of a "personality" that changes depending on weather conditions and lighting.
The Ocean blue to me(only pictures so far) appears to be always blue, no color shifting. So i prefer the metallic blue.
Anyway, to those who wanted a lighter Blue, now is your chance to get the car of your dreams, that is better than you currently imagine it will be, and will get better over time.
