I am learning that I need to get it outside in sunlight haha. Soon enough I will get it outside and get some good photos. I've tried more photos with the iPhone to no avail in the showroom.

I'm not sure I would call it white, Fashion is a fairly flat shade of grey and in different light it takes on some tan tint. I have yet to have someone compare it to white, but again, weird iPhone photos.

Do a quick Google search for "Fashion Grey BMW" and you'll find much better representations.



Still waiting for more pics from the OP!

If I was in the market, I'd love a fashion grey spec but would need the black trim bits and CP.

That's probably a much better representation haha. I'm excited to get it out in the sun! Sorry for delay - sales is busiest this time of year. I'm hoping for tomorrow or Wednesday to get her out.

It's still on my to do list to get it outside - snow storm rolled through a few days ago so once everything melts we can get it outside to get photos. Patience is a virtue, so I've heard. 😁

Timing isn't perfect. Not a ton of people looking for a 600 HP sedan in the middle of winter in Colorado, even with AWD. I wouldn't be surprised if it went out of state!

You built it.. why not a Comp??

My local dealer ordered for customers two M5 Comps while two non-Comp M5s sat on the lot and were ultimately dealer traded... this was months ago-June... when you would have ordered this car.. non-Comps don't sell I would say.

(I will be ordering a M5 Comp if I tire of my M4 Comp and don't like the new M4 lol.)

Reason is my store is allotted a certain number of M5 Comps (as are all other stores depending on region) and the next two we have are sold orders, so we likely won't have an inventory unit for months. We were given this extra M5 (non comp) allocation because we sold 2 other M5's so quickly, so this one is the third.

More photos! I didn't edit these to show you the color in the harsh light. MUCH more of a grey tone than tan outside in the sunlight, and so much better of a representation of the color than in the showroom. Which scares me, because, that's where she lives right now... 🤔

FG is a cooler tone of grey, like in the GT3 below, and I've always really liked it. Almost like a lighter shade of Nardo. But that's the problem with all off-whites. In certain lighting -- they look like crap.

So is the GT3 in this picture fashion grey?

It sort of looks like Hockenheim silver.

I was thinking the GT3 might be chalk. The other 911 to the left (which has a bit of yellow/green in the paint) looks like fashion grey to me.
