I hope, in Europe the individual paints (the whole range) will be available. In that case, Verde Mantis would be the one I desire.

I would go for Dravit Grey, or Tanzanite Blue II as a second choice.

Agree it's a beautiful color. But I'm afraid it'll get old quickly being so bright and vibrant. It's nice to see one once in a while but when they're everywhere not so much?

Not that true. Only a handful of people will get Msports package. Therefore, it is not going to be the most popular color.

According to the official brochure in Belgium, no Verde Mantis.

Verde Mantis has never been in the official brochures. It is one of the colours that are for special request.

lol, you're desperate for facts if you're using sample size as proof. The poll is obvious, it's the most popular color. Period.

If you base your decision on only 60 entrance, then you are right. However, any statistician will argue with your findings.

I'm a bit surprised you stop there and don't go ahead to draw the conclusion from this poll of 56 voters so far, all from the same forum, that the most popular/common color on the road is blue.

Based on your results, most of us are also buying the M Package...

How about polling Lux/Sport Line Buyers Color choice separate from M Pack buyers.

Majority of the G20’s that will be sold are not with an MPack. So less MPack drivers on the road, still makes Portimao Blue more RARE.

I bought my F20 in Mediterranean Blue back in 2016. Nobody had it. Now, it’s readily available but what seems to be a risky choice to some and others don’t want to pay $550 for it.

Blue is forecasted color on the rise in the auto industry for 18/19 models. I have always been a BMW Blue fan.

White and Black still remain the most popular color choices, luckily silver is way on the decline amongst all automakers.

Blue will always stand out in a land flooded with grey and silver cars. Very few times in my 20+ thousand Highway miles per year do I see a blue car period. When I see an Estoril blue 3 it just looks awesome. I love the Portimao blue and not surprised it’s leading this pole.

Not surprised either that Portimao Blue leads the poll. It's one of the most vivid colors, almost as good as San Marino Blue.

Finished up the painted front reflectors for the G20 and now can see why Portimao Blue is leading.

I saw Dravit Grey on an M850 and it looked awesome. I am choosing Dravit Gray for my M340i. I need to decide between Cognac or Black leather interior

After having Estoril Blue on my 435i well over 3 years, I don't want these rather loud and attractive color on a daily car anymore. Doesn't suit me. Too much attention. I will have Mineral Gray! Shame there is no silver color for m sport pkg.
