Some pics of a X5M in stunning Individual Avus Blue.

Brings back memories of my E39 525d Avus Blue Edition from ~2002.

Interesting blue - looks like a slightly milkier Marina Bay Blue. I think the interior was a missed opportunity here though, as they should've paired it with the Taruma Brown option.

Taruma or even either of the Ivory combos (w/ taruma or the one with navy blue)… agreed, but that exterior is absolutely stunning

Agreed on all combos. I have seen this more and more on the part of dealers that order Individual exterior color vehicles. For whatever reason, and maybe they have the stats to back this up, they exceedingly choose to pair them with black interiors.

It's not just a BMW thing either. Almost every Audi dealer I've visited that has Nardo Grey pairs with black instead of red or cognac. Porsche does this with chalk, mamba green, and now shark blue. Merc does it with their magno grey and blue.

Creativity doesn't have to stop at the exterior!

(gets off soapbox)

I like it ... only comment would be that it's very similar to Marina Bay Blue, so what's the point? i get the frozen MBB, but this seems too close a shade to MBB to be a separate colour. maybe in the flesh it pops differently to MBB ... still, one more BMW metallic blue in the world can't be a bad thing

MBB has a purplish hue to it, as this Avus blue has a Mexico blue undertone.

Silverstone would be a great pairing. Agreed that the interior selection is a big let down.

I like it. I always white exterior with a black interior.
Both colors are classic and timeless.

Agreed, Avus Blue is missing the purple undertone that MBB has to it.

This looks excellent on the X5 though.

I think the interior is a missed opportunity as they shouldnít have designed seats that look like something from a 1970ís Bentley

For those that are clamoring for laser lights is it a personal preference/ need with your local driving conditions especially at night time.

Beautiful color, however little too close to Marina Bay Blue. Not sure I would spend 5500 to have a color so similar to a "free" color but of course to each their own as both colors look great on X5M. I do agree the inside should have been some kind of brown/tartufo color to really make the whole package special, the black just doesn't seem to go well with the striking blue exterior. My personal choice would be MBB with taruma interior.
