Just my opinion.
Would you wear an orange suit to begin with?

Thank you for the reply and I must say yours looks really nice have you not considered putting an M Performance kit on

Let's just say I'm grabbing my black or white golf shoes if I were playing golf dressed like Rickie Fowler (in all orange).

Pairing brown with orange is just wrong to my eye.

That orange is a love/hate color.

For me, it reminds me too much of what a kid would pick, wanting to be noticed and proud that they're driving a BMW.

I'm the kind of guy who debagged his M5 and took it in black just to be a 'sleeper car.' I prefer to go unnoticed until I actually need that horsepower.


Bottom line, can you live with that color for the duration of ownership?

If it's just horsepower you're interested in, there other plenty other options that will outpace the BMW...starting with Corvette, Camaro, Mustang, etc...but I doubt that's what you meant

In terms of color, to each their own... personally, I really got bored of the typical black/white/silver/blue/red obsolete colors...I remember 20 years ago when Nissan Murano first broke the market with the orange/copper color and I was thinking to myself, why can't BMW come up with something like that...lo & behold, here we are and I just can't wait to get mine delivered...it's not about flashing out my car to others, but rather enjoying looking at it before I get in..again, to each their own

I agree and also I don't find sunset orange as flashy as people make out. It's actually quite a classy colour.

Beautiful car, I should pick up my 2021 330I xDrive in Glacier Silver next week. After looking at these pics I should have considered the SO. I had a HD Roadglide in Laguna Orange before and loved it; especially blacked out. Oh well, Silver it is and perhaps next time.

Iíve ordered sunset for my new car, it was a toss up between blue and orange. I find the the German marques have such uninspiring colour options, Iím quite a reserved person, but the choice of Greys and Silvers are just depressing. Grey has even crept into the household as a popular colour option.

That said, dravit grey is a stunning colour. But on the whole the world is far to a depressing place right now so that drove me to order something a bit more exciting.

I honestly love the color! It pops so much especially in the sun and itís pretty rare seeing it on a g20! Hereís a few pics of mine. Just recently put the black grille, side skirts, and carbon fiber roof. Instagram @orange_m340i

I think color options are not very satisfying unless you pay individual. I didnít want another blue as EB is everywhere here and so will be Portimao. So I went for alpine white with carbon m performance diffuser and spoiler.
oh estoril blue is terrible..just my opinion in the sunset orange thread....also I have a sunset orange metallic and love that some people don't like it. I tend to go for what other people don't like. My friends hated the M340 grill when it came out..now they kiss my ass about it

apparently you didn't see the spoiler or the CF diffuser. No reason to jump down my throat because you didn't see the parts I purchased

I purchased direct OEM for port installed from BMW. I get a lot of shit from people on this forum to be honest I have no idea why people get so butthurt that I purchased OEM.

I personally have seen aftermarket parts and they are not the same fitment. Some of the spoilers are okay but front lip I have seen some rough rough fitment coming from Ebay and Aliexpress sites.
