     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi there,

im about to order my M6 these days and im about 100% sure about outside color "Sakhir Orange". I wanted to go with full black leather in the first place but then looked at full leather sakhir orange/black at the inside...

what do you think? too much orange? does anyone have pics of a car like this?

thanks alot !

greetings from Germany

Good luck. Nice car. Since you asked for the personal opinions from others I vote "too much orange." Use it inside or outside, but not both IMHO.

I originally had mine ordered that way and then paid for individual brilliant white metallic outside. The Sakhir is beautiful but it will stand out everywhere and is a target for thieves as well. I agree either do the exterior or interior. Peace

Sakhir looks great in person, and I agree it will be too much but interesting. My M5 is SO with full merino black, and aluminum and it looks great.

Not a fan or orange for anything less than an exotic.

But if I were to choose orange exterior, I'd want black interior with a few orange touches here and there.

I did the ED Sakhir Orange/Silverstone convertible last month see pic. Turn heads all over Germany. Just another option to consider. I personally was advised by my dealer not to do the SO/SO because of resale and looks. That was one of my option but went with the SO/Silverstone and love it. Good luck with your choice, either way, you can't go wrong with an M6.

March, because my current lease ends in March and Carbon/Ceramic brakes will not be available until March 2013
