Agree with metallic comments, the colour can look okay on hot hatches but not an E89.

I love this colour and probably would get one - it’s so unique. My Alpine White is mundane in comparison (although I still love mine).

I do have an Atacama Yellow 1:18 model which is gorgeous too!

Agree with the black roof/mirror caps addition. Along with the black wheels it would look great

Chris1712, hey, that's my line, as a Valencia Orange owner too :thumbsup: :fuelfire:
Nope, definitely my line. VO is the one to have :poke:

Not a fan of black roof myself. for me it seems to change the dimensions/balance of the car's overall shape.

Would be ideal if you were an entomologist.
On sunny days it will be covered in every species of bug you can imagine.

I am all for bright colours, I had a liquid yellow Mini a few years back but I am not sure of this shade of yellow. I much prefer the Z4 in Valencia Orange, if the sdrive30i was available in Valencia Orange with that special black and orange interior I would have searched one out.

Personal taste ,but i think it looks great,
we go on runs with a forum member and his car always attracts attention ,for the right reasons.
Not like my boring silver and grey one.

Roofs fine, it needs silver wheels :P

Agreed. Super shiny silver wheels to make it pop.

One of the issues with black wheels is that generally it’s very difficult for the camera to capture the details against the yellow especially on a sunny day...

That’s why you get plenty of positive comments when you see them in the flesh as opposed to most pictures...

Anyway that’s my story..

a bit pale for me, has it faded?, I like really vibrant shocking yellows.

I love the colour but I am biased!

It was the Alcatama yellow and matching interior that won me over :)
