Lightbulb BMW M5 in Individual Atacama Yellow

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW M5 in Individual Atacama Yellow
83
COMMENTS

A bright yellow probably wouldn't be our first choice of BMW Individual colors for an M5, but if you're trying to get noticed in Qatar, where chrome wrapped cars are not out of place, this color choice makes more sense.

The exact color is Atacama Yellow, which was first introduced on the Limited Edition Design Pure Impulse Z4 for the UK.

We've seen Atacama Yellow on several other BMW models since: http://www.bimmerpost.com/?s=atacama

Chrome window trim is very popular in the UAE. Most M5's seem to have that option there.

black out the wheels and trim and it'll be fine. While they got the paint out, might as well black out the whole car and it'll look even better

On another note, BMW should let owners pick brake caliper colors for those who want individual ordering. That blue caliper looks out of place on this car

Unique color but not with those wheels or chrome trim. Gloss black wheels and trim would look great.

Trying to think of something positive to say, but coming up empty.

EDIT: This could look good with black wheels and mouldings. Definitely a bold look.
