Fashion Grey F90 M5 Competition!!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I had the pleasure to order this car for inventory at my dealer. This is a 2019 M5 Comp in fashion grey with some M performance carbon fiber! This is one of my favorite colors i've seen. In darker light it has a green hue but in direct sunlight it is a lighter grey. This car has the carbon pack pro with the larger rear wing and front splitters in carbon fiber. Also has the carbon diffuser and carbon roof.

More pics outside! In love with this color!

Looks great. There was a base M5 with that same color that another dealer ordered a few months ago. For whatever reason, I wasnít a fan of how it looked. This one looks fantastic...maybe itís the comp package or the carbon bits...either way, really like it!

Not a fan of the green in it, but love the contrast with the CF bits. I think the Porsche color "chalk" is better looking, but I feel it's a bit overplayed.

I'm not exactly sure what you call this type of paint like this, the chalk paint and Nardo Grey. Is it just non-metallic? I feel where the matte look was popular a few years ago, this type of paint is the new in thing. You see it on Raptors, Kias, Subarus among a few others. I'm a fan.

I love the chalk too. Fashion grey is a non metallic paint.

Wow! I might actually like that one more than Nardo.

It's at least more exclusive than Nardo.

More exclusive than Nardo? Is that even possible?

It's non metallic...I'd call it a "flat" paint. That may not be the technical term...but it makes sense to me.

Absolutely gorgeous. Love all of these grey shades that has been in style lately. Been waiting to see a Fashion Grey or Chalk White M5C with all the Carbon bits. Looks absolutely perfect. Just throw in KW HAS kit and M performance exhaust and vouwala!

I remember being surprised seeing the Fashion Grey after previous pictures but realized (even then) how different these colors look in light.

My Grigio Medio on order is loaded with every port installed CF trim offered. Wish Germany would stop dragging their feet and release the CF mirror caps for the US market. Anyways, your Fashion Grey looks awesome with the CF accenting, especially being a lighter color! I wonder had it been a sunny day in SoCal when I saw both cars (colors) if I would have switched up the plan and ordered the Grigio Medio!

It looks a lot like Nardo to me. I guess I have to see it in person.

Black interior in M5 looks a bit boring. I know its preference for most people, but I think silverstone or first edition's interior looks best on F90.
