Atlantis Blue M5... What Color Would You Order?

So I will be ordering a new M5 and at this point Im not wanting to go with any of the stock colors. Im sure a few other colors will be added once the M5 configuration is up and running, but I would like to do a custom stock color. So far I have three different colors in mind.

My first choice is Atlantis Blue, my second choice is Techno Violet and my third choice would maybe be Imola Red. At this point Im leaning towards Atlantis Blue. Here is a quick PS of an Atlantis Blue M5 I did. Anyone have any other colors I could consider?

Kingfisher blue. A metalic green with blue hue. Worked great on the large bonnet/hoods of the jags from 10 years ago. S till looks fantastic today.

The darker the better for my tastebuds on this sized car.

I think the F10 looks best in lighter colors or white. Moonstone is an amazing color, silverstone, mineral white, brilliant white, all would be in the mix.

I think atlantis is a bit too much for my taste, the color itself draws too much attention. I absolutely LOVE technoviolet but again, not sure it would work well on the newer cars.

Good luck, you're lucky to be picking a color for an ind. M5 if that's where you're at. If I were you, I'd decide between some of the E39 M5 colors.

Nice work, that blue looks great. I'd probably go with Alpine White.

How about a matte finish? A matte white on the M5 would look amazing IMO.

Some nice colors mentioned. I just saw a pic of the Hellrot Red and it is definitely nice. Thanks for the comments on the PS. Is it still not showing up? Should I host it elsewhere?

I reason Im wanting to go with something rather the regular stock colors is I want something that stands out a little more. I love the lines of the new 5 series and I think something eye catching will work well with the lines.

Mineral white followed closely by Le Mans or Interlagos blue.
