Agree. It’s a really cool color in person. I saw it on an i4.

Great photo skills capturing the color.

The color is certainly very neon-like and flashy. I just don't feel the Series 7's large, luxury-limousine countenance is best suited, or is an ideal canvas, for that. However, should you or others like it, fantastic!

Looks good on a vette but not a 7er unless uou matte ppf’ed it then I think it would tone it down and make it look classier. The new 7’s are very color dependent I feel and if you get the wrong one it completely changes the car.

I feel strongly that bigger cars look better in darker colors. I do like blues but the "midnight" type. I had Azurite on a prior G12 and would have done that on my G70 had it been offered. Carbon Black has hints of blue. This particular blue just does not appeal to me. Others may disagree. That's why they make different colors. I also believe the neon kinds of colors make it way easier for law enforcement to pick you out of the pack.

Without looking at anything other than the car and the color of it, I said to myself, "This must be in Miami" ..... lol, pretty close, Delray Beach

Wrong color on 7 series, but it most certainly will stand out. Belongs on smaller vehicles like M3, 911 GT3 or as someone else said on a corvette. And knowing how BMW of Delray Beach does business, likely with at least 20k over MSRP ADM.

Ugh I shouldn’t like this. I like my 7 to look like a rolls Royce with two tone and chrome and the luxury package. But this is so the other direction I almost like it.

That is a HUGE amount of a VERY bright color on that GREAT BIG car. I wouldn’t want it, but I’m sure someone will. To each their own, right?

When it comes to my big, comfy saloon, I like more subtle colors and tend towards lighter ones. I love the darker colors, but being a “glass half empty” type, five minutes after they are detailed, I think they look dirty. I’m going with Space Silver on my new I7 and feel the color looks great on the car and will at least appear to be clean for a reasonable amount of time between washes.
