Picked up Oxford Green Individual BMW X5M Comp

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Ordered this special X5M with all the whistles. Decided my discount was too good not to add every single option under the sun apart from the TV screens in the back and go down the individual route and order a colour I think BMW should use more often on their cars. I haven't personally seen the car yet (should be next week) but I cant wait and maybe it's all the excitement that had made me post this. Anyway will update on the journey.

UPDATE
Picked her up and she definitely is a Green Beast. Tried to keep the revs down and break her in slowly but couldn't resist not to rev her out once or twice 🤣. Now cleaned and decontaminated, ready for PPF, tint and clearplex.

UPDATE
Fully protected thanks to NVN London and they did such a fantastic job in making the PPF look seamless that most people wouldn't be able to tell there was PPF applied. Interior carbon trim was also protected in PPF and the door sills up to midway up the doors. Now off to Driven Detail for Modesta coating. Clearplex and Tint lined up as well.

I haven't been following ordering guides recently . Black calipers now an option or did it go through as an "individual request"

This was a joke.
Manhattan Green is pure poop color.
We call it East River here.

My apologies in advance for MG owners.

can't get behind Manhatten Green personally ... i would go for the brighter 'oxford green' which to me pops more:

https://g05.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1842418

and, for me, where there is a choice of caliper colour on a car, they should match the colour of the paint ... but definteily not be black or grey as you NEED TO SEE THEM!

... it's all a personal choice of course!

I did the opposite. I didn’t want matchy matchy. I ordered MBB with red calipers. I figure the blue and red display the //M colors well.

"matchy matchy" ... i like that phrase, i'll use it mysefl

i've seen a few MBBs with red calipers and i do like the contrast ... i just think colourful calipers are ace, so choosing black / grey feels like a wasted opportunity.

i don't recall caliper colour being an option when i ordered my car, but i would still have gone for "matchy"

post up pics when your car arrives, you must be getting excited by now!
