I wondered what the F95 X5M would look like in what was my previous favourite BMW blue (Long Beach Blue), so this is pretty close ... I would have loved to have owned the F85 X5M in LBB, but sadly my finances at the time would only stretch to a 40D (in Space Grey)!

Atlantis Blue ... I'll remember that, I could very well buy a new X5 for the wife soon and that is a stunning colour ... thanks for posting so many pics

I'd love for ours to be LBB, but we have an M2 isn that color and it's a cop magnet. It's louder and pretty much the Honda civics of M cars, but it really pops.

I LOVE an M2 in LBB ... it is the THE colour for that car ... my OCD however would be into hyperdrive trying to keep that colour looking permanently clean

EDIT: Out of interest, and speaking as a Brit, and police are not any kind of issue for anyone who isn't black (it seems ... so wrong!) ... what cop issues have you had? i.e. you're being pulled over for no reason ... what kind of attitude does the cop have with you .... what kind of frequency are we talking ... etc?

Genuinely interested in this, as here in little old Lancashire, England, we don't EVER get stopped by police ... unless as I say, you are black in which case it's not all the time, but maybe once a month if you're young and have a half-way decent car (like my nephew ... though it's a Merc!)

Looks very similar to snapper rocks blue. Is there any difference between them or is it just a name change?

Pictures don't capture Atlantis Blue (or any paint for that matter) correctly. There is a difference in-person especially how/when the light hits Atlantis Blue.

Atlantis Blue is more "dynamic" than Snapper Rocks Blue. They're not the same despite what you may or may not see in pictures.

Is Long Beach greener? I'm drawn to these blue hues with traces of green.

That's beautiful, love Atlantis. My car is Snapper Rocks, I'd love to see them side by side.

All nice, but Atlantis Blue >> LBB >> snapper rocks. Atlantis in person is on another level.

We should not be calling this Atlantis Blue. The color’s name is Atlantis (met). Adding the blue on the end is how you confuse people and get a car painted Atlantic Blue like that poor guy with the E92 lol.

The color name is Atlantis. There is no “Blue”.

Atlantis has a teal shift in person which is extremely hard to capture correctly

I think Snapper Rocks Blue, which is very similar to LBB, has more of a greenish tint. They're both gorgeous.

Long Beach Blue is darker and slightly less green than Atlantis. Atlantis is closer to Snapper Rocks.

The reasons I've been pulled over were valid. I think because the car looks hot, cops expected me to be a punk, but that goes away when I'm polite and don't argue with them for doing their job.

The issue is more with having self control and not to indulge in the shenanigans when provoked. Everybody wants to race the M2.
