Orion silver picts?

Does anyone have pictures of what the new 'orion sliver' looks like?

I narrowed my color choice to silver, melbourne, or imperial blue.
If orion silver is between regular silver and mineral gray, then that may be what I want on the Msport.

I found a pict of orion silver. It's available on the X6.
I think I may have found another color I want.
So now it's between orion silver, imperial blue, melbourne.

Estoril blue looks good on the Msport, but I think I may get tired of that color after a couple months.
The Msport with estoril does look sweet though.

estoril will get played out yet youre considering imperial blue and silver?

estoril and red will stay fresh and aggressive for a long time...

I think the press release said no Orion for msport. It's gone before I even seen it in a computer generated image.

For me it is silver or alpine white for msport. Probably the latter because I think metallic takes away some of the msport feeling by being too posh.

Not sure I like estoril and I am sure I will get tired of it. Should have had more violet in it.

Red is nice but I'm not sure it is even possible to sell a red BMW (in Sweden).

We have a blue similar to the Estoril maybe a little brighter on our Volvo V70R and I really like it. My wife didn't want another bright blue although she likes the color. Consequently, we are getting the melbourne, her choice I am wondering if it might be a little too aggressive on the M, i.e. cop bait but I gave her only three colors to choose from the melbourne, estoril, or mineral gray. I told her she might have to dye her gray hair to bright red--she didn't think it was funny.

OP...you might be getting a red Msport. I don't think Imperial Blue is an Msport color either.

So it's another "silver" that is really more of a gold/champagne. Looks like the "mineral silver" on the x3...

Lol at all the colors they're afraid to call what they are, the gold and browns..

To me, Orion Silver is a fancy word for beige.

Beige = blah!

Also, looks best to me with black interior vs. beige.
