Looks like I was a bit swifter to just pip Andrew across the line. Bought the 2004 e55 yesterday, pictured in his thread. Very proud, and glad to be onboard! :bannana::thumb:

Apologies haven't had a chance on photo front yet. Making up for lost time with kids again. The wife's been pretty good looking after our two screaming Banshee's, with my e55 road trips.

Welcome to the forum.

Excellent choice.

I've never seen that colour before and now I've seen your one and the one in the for sale section which Will posted up.

Thanks All, it's good to be on board.Yes I had only seen the colour once online, never in the flesh. Was after black, but happy now with this choice. Couple of months getting used to it, then a call to Acid more than likely. S/c pulley, map, x-pipe.

I was after black when I was looking and I thought mine was from the picture. However, turned out it was a grey colour which I liked even more as I've not seen another like it (in the flesh / UK anyway).

Be interesting to know all the colours they did for the E55k.
Found these on Wikipedia (mine is Tektite Grey) albeit the US versions given the spelling:

Exterior Paint Colors
040 Black
185 Jade Black metallic
189 Black Opal metallic
197 Obsidian Black metallic
353 Platinum Blue metallic
359 Capri Blue metallic
567 Bordeaux Red metallic
693 Desert Silver metallic
723 Pewter metallic
744 Brilliant Silver metallic
747 Granite Grey metallic
753 Tectite Grey metallic
816 Everest Green metallic
904 Midnight Blue
960 Alabaster White
Iridium Silver metallic (replaces Brilliant Silver)
368 Flint Grey metallic (replaces Tectite Grey)
Baralo Red (replaces Bordeaux Red)

Special Order 'Designo Colors':
029 Designo Silver metallic
033 Designo Mocha Black metallic
041 Designo Graphite metallic

Not sure how they compare to the UK colours available but Tektite and Obsidian were available on UK models and I'm pretty sure someone on here used to have a Flint Grey E63.
