Very nice

To give you all some additional background:
The dealer is Sepp Fässler which is very active and a true M passionate (Roger Fässler runs it)
He usually has in stock some nice M cars: right now M6 Coupe White, M6 Gran Coupe SG... And he also had an Alpina B3 Biturbo Touring recently.
His philosophy is to have cars always fully loaded.
I personally saw this M5 end of Feb at the dealership.
Before going I was skeptical...
And I must admit, away from the sun, it looks black with some nice deep green tones... In full light the green is quite dark and menacing so actually superb.
As usual for special colors, pictures do not do justice and on these pictures it maybe looks like a dull green. Interestingly it seems that green is the color least sold for cars, but this one is special and classy.
And yes the interior is Cohiba Brown.
If you are around in the region of Appenzell, feel free to drop by to greet him.

Would this color cost the same as other individuals ($5k?). Beautiful.

Paint looks beautiful I would have rather seen a deeper rich brown instead of that muddy color.

BTW the interior in the photo above looks more like Nutmeg than Cohiba to me.
I def agree, light light tan campagne interior but with black grilles and wheels. OMG that would be so sexy

I think the color is gorgeous but it seems a bit strange to have BRG on a german car. And it is classic Aston / Jag. So I would agree with you, so maybe get another color that's just like it, but not exactly :P

That Oxford Green is amazing! Especially combined with that color interior on the M6! Love it!

Exterior is great, interior is NOT. BRG on Rust brown would have been amazing.

I think a Nutmeg or Champaign interior would have suited the British Racing Green a bit better. Amaro is too dark.

Green doesn't belong on German cars IMO...

There is something slightly off about a German car in that color but you can't deny that it looks great.

The car is new and is currently the most expensive M5 F10 in autoscout24.ch in Switzerland. It costs almost 190k CHF.
I just don't like it. I don't think that interior color matches the exterior. To each his own though. Just not for me

The contrast of the gold calipers on the green is insane!

My previous car was a BRG Cooper S. I love dark green on European cars.
