Choosing a Color for Your BMW iX50: See Actual Samples & Consider Floor Protection
Blue Ridge Mountain Metallic or Storm Bay Metallic are two popular colors for the BMW iX50. Both of these colors can be difficult to distinguish from one another on the web site, and it can be hard to tell how they will look with Oyster Perforated upholstery inside. Aventurin Red Metallic is also an option, but it may not be exclusive to the iX.
Owners of Blue Ridge Mountain Metallic have reported that it never looks grey in any light, and that it has a turquoise/deep forest green hue depending on the lighting. Storm Bay Metallic is a cool blue grey color, while Aventurin Red Metallic is a deep red (not orangish). The Oxide Grey metallic finish is a soft tan color.
The interior of the car can also make a difference in the overall look. For example, someone with Blue Ridge Mountain Metallic chose Castanea Chestnut leather which looked bad on the BMW site but actually looked good in some review pictures. Another owner chose oyster Seneca which appears white but actually has a beige warm light tone.
For those who want to see what their chosen color will look like in real life, visiting a local BMW dealership and looking at the actual samples of each color is recommended. It's also important to consider floor protection such as mats or liners when making a decision.
In conclusion, choosing a color for your BMW iX50 is a very personal decision and should be based on what you like best. Visiting a local dealership and seeing the actual samples of each color can help you make an informed decision. Additionally, considering floor protection such as mats or liners can help keep your car looking great for years to come.
