What colors do you want BMW to offer for the F80 M3?!!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I, like many of you are eagerly awaiting the release of the new M3 and plan to purchase as soon as it becomes available.

I am hoping that BMW offer some great ///M exclusive/specific colours for the car.

I am disappointed that Estoril Blue is being used on the F30 M Sport and the 1 series M Sport - this would have been a great exclusive colour for the new M3 IMO.

So post up pics showing the colour or colours you would like to see offered exclusively for the F80 M3.

I'll start with the understated but cool 'Sparkling Graphite'

I've always liked that color but I'll probably get Silverstone again because I'm a boring SOB.

My wife's 335is Coupe is Le Mans Blue, an exclusive color for that model. I don't see that as making it any less exclusive for the E9x M3.

Interlagos Blue was offered both on the Z4 M and the E46 M3.

It's a few years away, but I'm planning on Estoril Blue II for my M4.

That color looks amazing on your car Golffrr!!
I'm seriously considering that color when I make my M4 purchase (if they offer it).

I don't know about in the States but here in Europe Le Mans Blue was available on every E9X M Sport model from 318i to 335i and also the M3 - in every body style - that is not exlusive to me.

I have already seen quite a few Estoril Blue II cars on the road here and it is a beautiful colour however i would like to see more ///M specific colours available for the new M3 and M4 - colours only available on ///M cars.

The E9X offered only 3 initially - Jerez , Interlagos and Silverstone and of these 3 only Interlagos was hugely different at a glance to the colours BMW were offering on the 3 series.

More choice of some of BMW's range of great colours, exlusively for the new M3 and M4 would be nice to have.

I've been wanting to get an Interlagos Blue M3 or M5 for the past 5 yrs. Hope they offer it on the F80.

Looks like a Moderator has changed my correct spelling of ' colour ' in the thread title to 'color '

San Marino Blue looks fantastic - first time i have seen this colour.
