Cool Sakhir Orange F80 M3 Spotted

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey there guys,

I've been to the Welt today to see how the M235i looks in person [photos here]. And it really looks incredible, I can tell you!

Then we headed back to the center of Munich and what stopped at a red light?!

A Yas Marina Blue M4 was also driving by, but I couldn't take a pic. They sound awesome! Like a race engine!

There were also two X5M, a 4 Series Gran Coupe, a 2 Series Active Tourer and two i8 all in camouflage. So if you want to see some new cars, go to Munich!!

Don't like it with black wheels, should look better with silver. Hope to see some more pics soon.

We should add these to the master color thread.

The test mule shots were taken on an overcast/cloudy day, so it affects the hue.

Understood, but then (correct me if I'm wrong) it looks like SO is a type of color that is going to be hard to keep clean (or look clean). For example AW or MW always look clean and glow regardless of the lighting conditions, but then they don't look as good as SO in the perfect light. Tough choice. I'm actually considering this color or YMB with silverstone leather, not sure what to do.

This statement is perpetuated a lot, but I disagree with it. You should see my AW 335i right now. It is not looking clean nor is it glowing under any lighting conditions. LOL! I haven't washed it since December 27th. AW/MW shows more dirt than darker colors IMHO.

SO won't be hard to keep clean, but because it's a darker paint, making sure to care for it and keep swirls to a minimum will/should be the focus.

Nothing shows more dirt than black and gray

This isn't my car, but my 335 looks about like this right now (..with a bunch of bee feces on it):

Most all of the car washes in Miami are 20$ hand wash, and they get every bit of dust off the brakes which rocks. Easy to keep the car clean.

Looks very sexy! I am sure M3 will look amazing in SO, too.

That looks tremendously good. I saw an M6 Gran Coupe in SO. Also amazing.

This is it! Finally some fully uncovered pics of SO M3. My choice was set, this only confirms it.

The subtly named shop in the back ground looks interesting

Thank you very much for posting these. It really shines with the black (monotone, preproduction) wheels adding contrast. Looks like the photographer captured the car driving through some sort of red-light district. I'd say that's appropriate.

Love the pic of the elderly couple below the "eroticland" sign - too funny.

That looks pretty damn nice. Much darker than I expected. Looks real good with those wheels.

It doesn't look as nice as I expect it to be. Maybe it's just that chrome grill...
