E53 Exterior Colours & Interior Guide
« on: August 05, 2010, 08:53:14 AM »
Ok Guys and Girls, just thought I would help current and future members with the colour options on the e53 X5. Clearly there are several popular combo’s but listed below are the colours that were available when ordered from new. Clearly pics of the real thing would be helpful but I am mindful that these could take up valuable sever space so  will refrain for the moment unless the Mods agree and will be happy to edit in the future. Most of this will be from memory, so If I miss anything then please let me know & I'll edit it accordingly  :thumbsup:

The Exterior Paint Code can be found in several place on the e53, these are as follows:

On the top of either suspension tower
On the VIN sticker attached to the 'B' pillar by the drivers door

You will also be able to get the colour & code from any BMW dealer by quoting the last 7 digits of the VIN. This should be done when ordering a touch up stick as the above info is a 'Guide'

I have filled in as much as I can remember but please feel free to PM me to add anymore info to the above.

Thought I would bring this back to the top of the pile. Loads of New owners have joined since this was done and may find the info useful even just for the paint codes :thumbsup:

But it's a 'sophisticated' colour, only showing its true character in the right light..... :D

I had Black Exclusive Nappa in my 2005 Sport.  Perhaps is was a Comfort Seat only option?
