Watch in hd for best quality. Looked great in person and LBB suits the car perfectly IMO

I'm in Melbourne today. Ironically, I work in software sales, and was having a client meeting with Brighton BMW. They had a LBB X6 on the showroom floor. Looked epic. They then pulled it outside into a VERY sunny day for a customer test ride....hideous. Sorry. Was too shiny, bright, and green.

Personally, I'm ecstatic that I switched to Mineral Grey. Far too Jekyll and Hyde for my liking in LBB.

I think I might be living on a planet that has a different sun. I have seen LBB a dozen times now in the sunlight and still don't see it being green Its still blue under my sun

But maybe I don't see colors all that well

Agreed... I have seen a LBB X6M inside under artificial light, under overcast skies and under sunny skies and the car is absolutely blue. A lighter blue for sure but no green. Very close to the video images above but maybe brighter and more metallic sparkle in the sun.

Maybe in Australia the sun is different

I snapped a LBB X6M yesterday at local BMW delaer.

To confuse you even better, the sky was cloudy yesterday and the car was really dirty.

To appreciate the color difference, you must see LBB with Estoril Blue next to each other: LBB tends to be more greenish while Estoril blue has more purple in it. Both colors are great IMHO.

See thread below for a comparison.

BMW should have reserved Estoril for the M2. Still the best blue they have ever made.

Yes I have seen those pictures a while ago. And quit frankly that color made me worried when I did. But those pics are waaaaay to green. I've seen it in the sun and it doesn't look that way at all. Like I've said before I don't ever see green when I see it, only blue. But maybe im off. Wonder what the people from Daytona thought that saw it over the weekend

We must all have different eyes and colour perception haha.

Most certainly LBB in a bright sun was quite green. It was basically an aqua like shade.

Sure, LBB is on the greener side of the blue spectrum but there is no way anyone describes the car as green in any way. It is blue. Period. Do we really need to have this debate... again?
