Tahiti Green: Any chance this is it?

I don't plan on buying it, but I am intrigued by what Tahiti Green will actually look like. Here's the color chip from the 1er brochure...



Alpina recently showed a bunch of new cars, one of them in a color that looks awfully close to Tahiti Green. Any chance this is actually Tahiti Green?

I still won't buy it, but I must admit it looks sharp with Lemon Leather.

If that's Tahiti Green it looks better than the color chip - I was suspecting that Tahiti Green would be more of a sea-green (green/blue).

That actually looks fairly close to the paint chip, not bad.

Doubtful. Alpina does their own paint if I'm not mistaken...? Stunning color though.

You would certainly have a very rare 1er if you went with Tahiti Green. It's not the most masculine color in the world, even on a body-kitted Alpina, but it has enough blue (assuming this is Tahiti Green) to keep it from looking totally fruity. It's growing on me.

I'm pretty sure you're right, but this would be a clever way to preview the color.

Tahiti Green is probably my first choice. The first car I ever owned was a blue-green '91 Saturn. I loved that color, and I'd like to return to something like that.

If that is not it, it looks pretty damn close.

that's what I thought also. Their colors are unique from what I know.
