The silver color looks reserved for 3D view

In my opinion this colour suits the luxury of x5 in full chrome for non msport version. Msport must be black, white or blue... all in shadow line.

C'mon BMW, this is your best green? Bring back Fern Green, that was a truly good looking, almost emerald like green.

Dear haters, my clients purchased their ordered X5 in Manhattan Green yesterday and loved it. So, chalk one in the "will sell" column.

This is that new car on the lot they'll have a hard time getting rid of. Someone who will otherwise not get it will be able to get this one because it will be heavily marked down thanks to that terrible color

It's not a colour I'd buy, but a blacked M would work that colour a lot better...the X5 colours are almost a deal breaker for me, I'm holding out that Ametrine will look ok...it's a great time to buy any shade you like....

Just because someone thought it was nice does not make it nice.

It's very similar to Porsche's new Aventurine Green. I'm not a fan of either, but I think that we forget that these companies have global markets with different tastes. I can see Manhattan Green being more of a hit in Europe where loud colors don't go over well.

Nice going.

I hoped they leased it, because resale of that color will definitely be a challenge.

They DGAF about resale. They're retired, have a collection of classic Rolls, Bentleys and more and didn't want a color that everyone else has.

That background doesn't really support a mass market or even statistically significant appeal implication, does it? :-) What do you get someone that has everything — "something ugly" is an entirely reasonable answer in that case. When someone says "no one will buy it", they obviously don't literally mean "no one", they mean "most".

For myself, I am not offended by the colour. I would never voluntarily spend my own money on it, but it could have been worse.

If someone can put G05 in Artic gray, M sport side by side with "green" G05 from this thread someone could think that we are talking not about 2 different models,but manufacturers..one is BMW(with big grille) and second,"green"chinese copy...this is so wrong,only thing is missing is iconic grille..that will be top on this green....
