It was mine, yes. I custom ordered it with Sewell and don't commute to work so that's why the low miles. I thought it would be a little less dark and so at times it looked blackish. I really wanted the comp package but Bryan there talked me into just getting this. When the comp came out, I was determined to keep this car, but Bryan kept working me over with deals.

Basically I of course lost money trading it in and you I am sure got a great car loaded with everything. I ended up with the comp in a color I really like, Daytona Violet.

I have read these forums for a while now but it was your pics of the car that convinced me I had to join to post and see.
I love your color and it is exotic in a way and I agree it will stand out way more than mine! And comp is worth it

Glad someone on here got it, like I said, I read here all the time for the last couple of years. I had two M4s prior to these M5s.
I’m in Southlake...we should meet up sometime. Would love to see this color in person.
Same here. I live in Southlake and bought my M5 competition from Sewell. Would love to see this Daytona Violet in person!

My CA at Sewell said the color wasn't purple enough for you...so what color did you go with? I'd love to see pics of what replaced this.

Nice! My F80 is a 30th Anniversary Edition in Macao Blue. I was thinking of trying to get an F90 in the same color... Now I know. Sweet!

My take
It's beautiful but personally don't thinks it's that exotic, despite being super unique! Not sure about 5200$, not going there, whether as an IDIVIDUAL BMW COLOR IS worth it or not! That's very subjective!

I believe this color was originally on the E30 including the Evo M3.

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1075787

https://s14net.vbulletin.net/forum/s...e-thread/page2


I would guess that when the E36 M3 came out that this color was enhanced in two ways.. one darker ( cosmos Schwartz ) and one more purple. ( Daytona violet and Techno violet )


BMW revived it for the f80 M3 30 Jahre edition models.

That's the only word I would use to describe it
I never really loved it, but it's growing in me because if the amount of complements I have been getting on the color since inception, more than anything else about the non exotic car

Gorgeous color but the premium is truly eye opening. Still - this color has to be appreciated without any financial perspectives.
