Metallic - Black sapphire
Black Sapphire is a bit of a funereal shade, but it does help to tone down some of the i7’s more over the top styling flourishes, and definitely helps to make that massive grille look a bit tidier. A sensible choice, and at no extra cost.
Metallic - Brooklyn grey
All the information you need on the BMW i7.
Metallic - Carbon black
Clearly, there’s not going to be an awful lot of difference between two different metallic blacks, but Carbon black has a little more life to it than Black sapphire, and there’s a faint hint of very dark blue lurking just under the surface, so of the two it’s the one we’d go for.
Metallic - Mineral white
Mineral white suffers from exactly the same problem as Alpine white, in that you need to have everything else on the outside a sharp contrasting black and you really need some California sunshine.
Metallic - Oxide grey
Metallic - Sophisto grey
Sophisto grey can look like flat, matte-effect grey under certain lights, but there’s enough shine and sparkle in it that it really comes to life under warm sunshine. Good luck finding that in the UK, but it’s a nice shade on the i7, albeit one that might be slightly tricky to re-sell.
Metallic - Space silver
You’re never going to go too far wrong painting a large BMW in a shiny shade of silver, and Space silver proves the point. It is a little bit harsh though, and could do with the warmer undertones of Sparkling copper grey.
Metallic - Sparkling copper grey
Sparkling copper grey is actually a really nice colour on the i7, as there’s enough depth and contrast from the copper part of the finish to stop it looking like just another boring silver. Possibly the best choice of the no-cost colours for the i7.
Solid - Alpine white
White on big cars like the i7 really only works when (a) you take away all the chrome and make sure that all of the exterior trim is a sharp contrast black, and (b) you live in Palm Springs. Anywhere else and it just looks like a wedding hire car.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Dravit grey
Dravit grey is an interesting colour, as like Sophisto it can look — under certain lights — like a flat, matte finish but there’s a real gold-y sparkle under the top-coat that gets picked up by warm light and really brings the paint to life.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Tanzanite blue
Tanzanite blue is possibly the best colour for the i7 of all. It’s dark enough to look sophisticated, subtle enough that it doesn’t make the car look too over the top, but with enough depth and sparkle to look interesting. A great combo.
BMW Individual Metallic paint - Frozen pure grey
Frozen pure grey, as with all of BMW’s frozen paints, looks matte and flat under most lights, but get it in the right environment and it almost looks like one of those multi-hue ‘flip’ paints, with hints of purple and gold under the surface. A great colour.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Frozen deep grey
How many frozen grey paint options do we need? Well two at least it seems, but Frozen deep grey isn’t as interesting a colour as pure grey, looking too close to black and never quite coming to life.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Frozen tanzanite blue
It’s odd, but taking Tanzanite blue and making it frozen just doesn’t quite work on the i7. It looks fine on smaller BMWs, but so large is the i7’s canvas that it’s just a bit too much. Better to stick with metallic Tanzanite.

BMW Individual two-tone oxide grey metallic paint - Black sapphire
Want to spend as much on paint as you could on a new Dacia? Well, this two-tone mix of grey and black is the one for you. It’s very OTT, with BMW clearly taking aim at more traditional two-tone paint luxury cars as Rolls-Royce and Bentley. Does it work? Mostly, and it’s certainly a subtle two-tone option, but you’d want a big ego to back it all up.
BMW Individual two-tone oxide grey metallic paint - Dravit grey
Even more subtle than mixing black and grey for a two-tone is this mixing of grey and… another grey. It’s a classy look, and just about understated enough that the casual glance won’t pick it up. Then again, if you’ve spent this much on paint, don’t you want to shout about it?
BMW Individual two-tone oxide grey metallic paint - Tanzanite blue
This two-tone look, putting the Oxide grey on top and the Tanzanite blue down the sides. It arguably looks a little more classy and welcoming than the grey/black combo, but again you’re definitely looking like a show-off with this option.
