I like YMB too but I think I may be a too old to drive around in a smurfwagon. I'm not saying that I'm old or anything ...FAK maybe I am. Now I'm thinking SO on black interior.

I am still on the fence about an individual paint order, so that is just what I like for now. I hear ya though. Can I live with the color after the honeymoon phase? Not sure about that yet!

I tell you one thing, if Interlagos Blue was an option on standard list it would be my choice without hesitation.

I was thinking San Marino for individual, but I also love Frozen Japan Red, and Frozen San Marino. For $5000 I would like something truly INDIVIDUAL. Ya know?

San Marino is also one of my favorites but paying $5K for a color...I just can't do it. I don't have that kind of flow.

Im not too much into any of the available colors, IMO one of the worst line-ups ever but hey, thats just me..

Id def. go with San Marino Blue Individual if id get one in the beginning...but i changed plans to get an M6 in SM Blue now and wait for the LCI M4, that time there should be more colors available..

Interesting to see that sapphire black is least popular color so far.

Any bets on how long it will take for someone to order a yellow car with an orange interior?

After reading the posts, mine seems boring, but... SB or MG with SB interior (assuming it's the saddle color on the BMW visualizer) still tops my list. Can't wait to see any color in person or on the road though!

I'm trying REALLY hard to like YMB, but find myself lusting for either EBII or MCB. I have the YMB as my desktop wallpaper for now, and in the right lighting and photo processing it looks okay, not quite lust worthy. Most of the time it looks like baby blue
The 'metallic' of YMB barely seems to stand out - looks non metallic to me.

...and now that will be the signature color associated with the M3, an otherwise georgious car. Maybe I'll like it better when I see it...

Does Sakhir Orange shift between light red and rich orange in the sun like this M6 shows?? The preproduction M4 Sakhir Orange pics we have make the color look pretty bland. But if it shines like a Lambo dual layer paint, then I would be in.. just the chances of seeing it in person before ordering are slim to none, as no dealers seem to have a Sakhir orange car in their showroom ?

Are any dealer models shown on the floor in SO?

I'm starting to not feel this car. There are no colors I love (I want a nice blue) they're cheeping out on the rear tails (again) and there is no ZCP. I may wait for the lci with zcp in a blue they will undoubtedly make available after the first year run.

At the local dealer today and they had a Sakhir orange m6 in the showroom. Looks very red with inside lighting but seems to show the orange more in sun light. Really nice color in person.

Pretty much the same here. I may be going with Frozen MCB which hopefully will be available as one of the "standard" Individual colors.


Best regards,
