I’m well aware that I may be the only person who is obsessed with this color, but I honestly think that Arctic Metallic is the best color ever offered by BMW.
There’s just something about it that makes me love it. It looks like a light teal, yet, it could also look pink-ish, brown-ish, silver-ish, and even blue-ish.
Don’t get me wrong here. I love Estoril Blue, Melbourne Red, Techno Violet, Dakar Yellow, Yas Marina Blue, Boston Green, and other interesting BMW colors, but none of them appeal to me as much as Arctic Metallic. It was available on the E90 and E92 from 2006 until 2008. It’s been almost a decade since it was discontinued, yet I’d still buy it if I could. I’m well aware that it’s available for $5000 through BMW Individual Manufaktur. If I could, I’d order a base 320i in Arctic Metallic with black sensatec, satin silver trim, and nothing else for roughly $38,000.
