This is the color I have ordered. Does anyone think it will be a cop magnet?

I've had mine since Monday (feels like much longer!) and no one on the street has noticed it. It's a great colour - classy and sporty at the same time.

Unrelated question, when you are at the traffic light, do you have to keep your foot on the brake, or does the car have a auto-handbrake, or a launch control which keeps the car still while waiting for you to apply the throttle?

I'm new to the car so this might not be the full story but the car acts like a manual in neutral at the lights - no creep. I keep my foot on the brake to stop it rolling back or forward, but also out of habit.

I saw monte Carlo blue in person two days ago and wasn't impressed at all. Coming from an interlagos blue me I found the color to be a bit boring. It seemed a bit dull in person to me and I love blue on cars. It wasn't bad but just not what I thought BMW would use as there flagship color. I don't think it will be grab that much attention from cops either.

Sorry it didn't do it for you. Here's mine. I'm delighted with the color.

Not that I hated it. Just looks a lot brighter in pictures. In person it just wasn't what I expected. I actually ordered it in the beginning and changed my order after seeing it. I still think the M5 looks good in any color 😄

Still beautiful, even if it's been the most viewed F10 M5 color.
