    CTS-V Color choice

    for the introductory year of 2004, the V only comes in Black or Silver. Does anyone know what additional color choices will be available for 2005?

    VinMan out...

    Other than that radical shade of blue offered on the M3 and 350Z (which I dont think would look right on this car), I dont know why you would WANT the V in any other color. Maybe even a deep burgundy color but this car is made for Black and Silver.

    Someone would want a CTS of any kind in a color other than black or silver?!

    I think it would be cool to make the colors of the V-series logo available, which i think would be yellow, red, blue, black, silver.

    I don't like the CTS in silver, and black in Arizona is not an option. Thant's why I'd like another option. :disappoin

    It's okay in silver. I'm not fond of the CTS' shape in black (well, I'm not wild about the CTS' shape at all, but especially not in black.) Looks better in lighter colors IMO, not really white though. A light blue would be nice.

    Silver or Black will be fine for now but it would have been nice if they added a few other colors to the mix like the classy pearl white or perhaps a dark, forest green. I'm not complaining though, the silver one has my name written all over it.

    Re: CTS-V Color choice

    trust me guys, I have nothing but LOVE for Silver and Black. I'm not proud this year.... but being a huge Raiders fan I'm automatic for those colors.

    In fact, to prove how insane I am...... My 740 is Silver, the SS I recently sold was Black. Don't think I need to say any more about that.


    I do like the charcoal gray color the M5 comes in, that would look nice on a CTS-V.

    VinMan out....

    I bet you mean Anthracite. Yep, this would be a killer color for the CTS-V.

    Re: CTS-V Color choice

    The only color I'd like to see added to the V would be that great metal flake paintjob that looked both black and silver on the Sixteen concept. That is a color I'd be happy to pay extra for.
    Kind of like that BMW grey, but darker.

    I think the CTS-V needs colors that soften its hard corners. Kinda like this one:



    So how many other bmwm5.com/m5board.com folks are sniffing CTS-V private parts?

    Re: CTS-V Color choice

    Why would you want to soften the CTS-V's corners? That is part of what makes it so hot!

    I do agree that charcoal grey would be hot on the V and I have thought secretly in my mind of painting my CTS that color. Funny you should say that....also picture it that color with red calipers.

    To each their own, I suppose, but I don't agree with that. I don't particularly care for the CTS' shape, and particularly not in colors like black that accentuate the hard edges.

    With sales topping 4,000 a month many disagree with your view.
