Very difficult to tell with the partially cloudy lighting. I almost think they would be same color if you didn't see them side-by-side

Like both shades of blue, tho IMHO the M5 would look best in the San Marino blue offered on the M6

MCB looks a bit richer but that might be just me trying to find a difference.

+1. Even though informed that they belong to 2 colours, I can hardly tell the difference.

I'd say Montego has a pretty significantly thicker hue to it, especially on a cloudy day:

Seeing the F30 M-Sport next to the M5; I like the F30 without the fog lights that will be coming to the US. It looks odd with the fog lights now..
