My Friend's Le Mans Blue E92 M3 in Photo with New M3 & M4

Crappy photo but still cool. He said, "those were the "spares" in the garage beneath Cobo Hall at the Detroit auto show. They were almost identical to the ones on the floor but they were dirty so it may have been to let the press drive them."

Would love to see the M4 (or M3 for that matter) come in LMB. Although they're show cars, and I appreciate BMW picking colors which show the lines that these cars have.

if you ask me. the ZCP rims look way better than what the F80 has right now. i am sure the ZCP F80 package will fix that though.

Very cool! In that shot YMB look a lot better. AY also looks very "metallic".

I'm hoping that they offer Le Mans Blue, Interlagos Blue, and/or Estoril Blue II in 2015, because that's when I'll be ordering mine. Maybe even San Marino Blue. Yaz Marina Blue reminds me too much of Laguna Seca Blue, the "Smurf" Blue.

Yeah, I have a thing for Blue Bimmers.

Money2536 inspired me to register. Sorry for the poor quality, I didn't expect to see them in that garage which is poorly lit and I only had my cell phone. Here are some additional photos I took at the industry preview last night. Since I own an E92 M3, they opened up the black M4 to let me sit in it!

Howdy. You should come out to TSE events btw. I have been running the group for nearly 5 years. You'd enjoy them. Lots of other M and 911 drivers. A bit of Italian metal too.

How does the interior compare to the 4 Series? Pretty much the same?

Yeah, I have a thing for Blue Bimmers.
For having a "thing" for blue Bimmers, your color analysis is surprisingly poor. YMB doesn't have any green in it at all, so it is nothing like a turquoise or teal variant like LSB. Your comment about LSB looking like "smurf" blue says it all - that's a function of poor photo quality (usually found in low-quality cameras taking direct-sunlight pics), as LSB in the flesh (again, due to its green hue) doesn't look anything like smurf blue (or YMB) in the real world.

YMB may not look good to you in these pics, but the only current BMW blue it actually resembles is a mix between Estoril (for the shade and metallic effects) and Santorini (for the blue-purple hue). Estoril would barely look any different than YMB, just a little bit lighter and less bold.

I actually have a thing for Blue Bimmers as well (eight years running with an LSB M) so I am qualified to debunk your speculative chromatics. I will be ordering mine in either LSB or Atlantis Blue.
