I guess this video shows a pretty representative look of the Valencia Orange. If so, that will most probably be my choice, it looks awesome.

Valencia Orange sounds so sexy. I hope is the pace car color at the Rolex/Daytona race.

I ordered AW only because VO is too loud for me and all of the "M" body details show up better in AW. Although I wouldn't bet any money on it, I'm hoping that BMW offers the "Exclusive" program with the 1M so you can order it in any BMW color.

Sorry, at this time BMW says they cannot do individual orders at Leipzig. Unless they make a change and allow special orders at this factory, our only hope is to have them add other standard (or P1) paint options.

I've already asked about doing a special paint order and that was the answer I got.

I personally think BMW should change Valencia Orange to Camelion Orange since the color assumes changes under all lighting conditions ultimately hiding it's true color.

IMO some of the changes in color do not look good. I personally don't like the dull Orange, and dull Copper look that is present in low lighting conditions. Yet the Yellow/Orange is almost too bright in direct sun as seen in the video on the highway in Jersey.

For me the decision of color for my 1M continues. (sucks) I haven't had this much trouble choosing color for any car I have owned ever.

It would be nice to see a color wheel next to the Orange paint so we could compare known colors like red, blue, green and Orange etc. Maybe then we could gauge the true color of the photos we are seeing and just how Orange this color is.

When I look at skin tones and say red in surrounding objects in the photos most look correct to me on my laptop, yet the VO is all over the place.

I assume you didn't see the colour in person, did you?
Me neither, but in my opinion two thirds of the pictures we see from VO are rubbish and are not representing the real apperance. Especially including that video from the highway, where the car actually looks red.

I'm not saying I can proof any videos or pictures wrong, but it's just my experience as an amateur photograph that tells me, that there are many pictures out there which have nothing to do with how it will be actually seen by the eye.

I just want it to be mentioned, not that you make your decission based on bad made pictures.
