Black and Blue almost complete

Bluestone 540i almost done, door chromes wrapped, kidneys changed, Euro fender badges painted and added, rear spoiler being painted gloss black to match rest of car trim, once spoiler is on final rear details will be to either wrap or paint rear diffuser gloss black or keep it m sport grey ad wrap the exhaust tips black..wont decide until the spoiler is on.... Inside pedalhous pedals added in black and radar and laser going in hopefully next week... car needs to be coded as soon as octopump gets back to NY ugh.....experimenting with having interior vinyl made to match the cove line matte wood so i can cover the gloss black parts of the center console that get all finger printed and scratch to match the wood parts...

Is bluestone the best color for the new 5? Not sure why it don't come in the charcoal grey like my 14 f10.

Without a doubt Bluestone Metalic is the best color for the 5 series paired with 20 inch wheels, M Sport package and black kidney grills. Plus an ivory leather interior of course.

bluestone is awesome never thought id love anything as much as carbon black... i do think it needs some extra black trims where possible to toughen it up a bit but im in love and haven't reconsidered my choice once.. ok well once when i was at the radar installer and i was parked next to a fully loaded carbon black m550.. but hey the owner looked at my car and said i was considering bluestone but went CB, not sure i shouldn't have gone BS...


Black rear spoiler going on and rear diffuser and exhaust tips being painted black hopefully monday or wednesday...the im done...other then considering black wrap "eyebrows" to cover the silver metallic at the top of the headlights... my body shop guy has amazing vision with certain things and has done his share of great mods on bmws... depending on the cost i will probably listen to him and try it

Please, do post some photos. I'd love to see the Night Blue and Matte wood. I've been considering this combo myself, or Ivory Nappa with the Luxury Seating Package.
