Wink I hate to do this to you Blue.Thunder but it looks like your secret is out!

Looks like your mystery color has been leaked buddy.

I'm pretty sure there is no one else in Germany with a Comp Pack M5 with Akrapovic exhaust and Chrome Window Borders.

Excellent choice of color my friend. I would have never guessed.

I would just like to know how much you paid to get the "devil under the hood" option? LOL!

No one seems to know how to pronounce Akrapovic properly

Isn't it "a CRAP ovik"? Or possibly a "ch" sound at the end which is probably the original Slavic pronunciation. Either way it doesn't sound all that great in English with the "crap" accented. "Akra" works better.

Never mind, Dave. But I have to disappoint you again:
First, there exists no "RARE ATLANTIS BLUE PERFORMANCE PACKAGE" for the M5.
Second, the color resp. MY color is definitely NOT ATLANTIS BLUE !!!



And the price tag lies much higher than 125.000 €, that's ridiculous for a fully loaded and special M5

HAHAHAHA! Somehow I just knew it wasn't your real color. But that is your car right?! Lol!

Of course it's my car! It was filmed in Düsseldorf on the famous KÖ-Street (Königsallee) where the rich and famous go shopping.

On that day Blue.Thunder wasn't in good shape because of bad weather.
But nevertheless, I think you can clearly see that it's not Atlantis blue.

Atlantis blue metallic (code 399) looks like this ...

The moment I see this color, I'm reminded of KINGFISHER BLUE (like what I saw in that BMW Individual brochure)

Oh no, not again. We already had that. Any other ideas?

Maybe you look again what Stealth.Pilot and Scott26 wrote about it in my thread.
Maybe there is no official name but only a code?

Are there any hopes in the future, that you'll reveal the color name?
