Yes, i love Cape York Green. My husband wanted blue or red, but I got to see it in person at the dealership. Itís grayish green in low light and almost teal in the sun. Really interesting color.

it's a very nice color. I first saw it last year when I was ordering the X1. I assume that "Cape York Green" looks identical on the X1 and the 5-series?

too bad I didn't pick Cape York Green at the time, otherwise I can get the same color on my upcoming 530i... two cars with matching colors!

Didnít realize how big new 5 is until I saw one on the road yesterday. The car has a lot of presence. The only criticism I had is the rear looking too flat for my taste, but I could live with that

I like darker greens but Cape York Green just really suits the G60. And thatís the thing, some colors look better on certain cars than others. This is one of them.

Walked in to the dealership with my wife to show her the new i5 M60 and she saw an all black M4 Competition convertible. She wanted me to buy that one. I wanted the 4 door sedan though. Maybe I get her one later.

Moses should have added #11: The wife is ALWAYS right.

I have always faithfully abided by this unwritten rule even when she is in the wrong. (actually, especially when she is wrong) A happy wife is the beginning of wisdom and eventually world peace.

That's why my G60 turns RED.
By the way: Happy wife, happy life! And it has been that way for 42 years.

Looked at this kind of spec for non Msport package to avoid all the gloss plastic. Would love to see a real picture of this kind of spec in Cape York Green.

[QUOTE="OHV_44;30820632"]That's why my G60 turns RED.
By the way: Happy wife, happy life! And it has been that way for 42 years.

And itís that reason why I have Tanzanite Blue instead of Cape York Green. Married for 38 years. My husband would not go near my Jaguar because I bought it without asking him his opinion. Iím the car person, but whatever makes him happy makes my life easier. Itís just a color. He also wanted self driving where I donít care. I never use cruise control of any kind. I like to drive.

The wife is very happy thankfully. The M4 comp convertible will make her happier when I get it for her. She has a 70K Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit right now which she loves.

Everyone has seen it and there is a long thread on that post. Another person posted it again in another spot. It is the most idiotic review I have seen and have watched dozens.
