Not too much different, closer to Phoenix Yellow.

Honestly, from that grainy pic, it may as well be Aurum Dust or Phoenix Yellow in different lighting conditions.

I bet that the size of the metallic flake in Austin Yellow will be a bit smaller than what we saw on the M4 Concept car.

This. I think it's going to lean more toward a richer tone of Dakar. Maybe it will be in between the two. Who knows.

I have been pretty spot on with the colors on the new M3/4 here recently.

Not much of a difference to me and it's not for me. I can't stop looking at Yas Marina Blue

Yas marina and Sakhir is going to look like Phoenix yellow with Imola.

The yas/Sakhir is the Supergirl combo.

Well, even though I'd rather have Atacama Yellow instead of this shade, I'm really glad that BMW is offering yellow, orange, blue, and green as optional colors on these cars, with most of those shades being nice and bold.

Much better than the boring selection we got with the E9XM generation.

I would do this or Yas Marina if it were a weekend car, but for a daily driver too much attention and it might get annoying in a year or two. Sucks to think I'll end up in a grey or white car again, hoping Sakhir will save the day and not be 'too' flashy.

Indeed, and without the additional cost (..although I'm sure there will be a plethora of Individual colors available for +/- $5k).

I hear this a lot. I never got tired of driving my '03 PY/IR M3. You just get used to the bold color after awhile and it no longer really phases you. Annoyed however? Naw!

You sure?? I'm confused now.

It will get both a green and yellow color option - both standard options (not Individual).

The yellow will not be the same exact one you see on the Concept M4 (Aurum Dust), but similar.
Edit: Also, what color is this?
