BMW X5M Competition in Individual Velvet Blue

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Of all the Individual colours that BMW offer, Velvet Blue has to be one of my absolute favourites.

Here we see it presented on a X5M Competition complete with 50 year M emblem badges.

That is a beautiful color. I hint of purple but not too much that it's obnoxious.

Velvet blue is one of my favorites, I think it pairs best with an ivory or silverstone interior

Totally agree, and blue brake calipers too, red is not suitable for this combo 😉

Yeah, I'm fine with either, or black even. I'm not sure I'll buy another BMW again, but I do like their colors

Great color, but too bad it's over boring Black leather

Stunning car with an undeniably clear message to iX design team: iX would set new sales records if it had an opportunity to closely resemble this vehicle.

Matching the calipers to body would have flowed better or if it were my vehicle I would go with a shop that could match to Alpine Weiss or a reluctant second place Schwarz.
Brushed wheels would make that colorway pop since the interior kind of buries the full effect of Velvet Blue by being a run of the mill boring black.

Aren't those bicolor wheels already brushed? Or are you referring to a different set spoke wise? Agreed on the interior, black is super boring
