I know this is a totally subjective question, but I have to choose a color soon and i cannot decide between these two. It will be on a 325i sedan. I am leaning towards Gray Green because it looks damn good to me, subtle but not so quite and definitely rare.
Biggest Pro is that its a lot more easier to maintain than OB, (i am lazy i admit)

If i got Gray Green, it would be Gray Green with black interior.

Orient Blue on the other hand was what I had wanted to get for the longest time, before I saw Gray Green. Plusses are that it looks damn sexy at night, really sharp looking color, but i heard that it is a ***** to keep totally clean looking.

Any Suggestions? here's some pictures for thought


and of course Jeff's car


Thanks guys! this is a tough tough decision, I can't lose either way but I want it all! lol

good call showing a stock green versus Jeffs Orient Blue. :confused:

Either way, Orient Blue. That was my second choice. It is so distinctive, not many cars are in that color.

Both hot colors - I've got Orient Blue and love it, but you're right about keeping it clean - every once in awhile, I want to kick myself in the arse for not getting titanium silver. I'd say if you have *any* aversion to washing your car on almost a weekly basis, go with the gray-green.

I've got to vote orient blue, I almost would have gotten my own Ci in orient, if I hadn't seen Carbon Black at the dealership.

This is such a win win situation, but why does nobody ever get gray green? It looks like a fantastic color to my eyes, and i definitely know why everyone digs orient blue. I just really suck at keeping the car clean, and i'm almost certain my orient blue will dull after two weeks
