Snapped a few pics at the show. Sadly they were locked so I couldn't get in them. Stunning cars though!

2015 BMW M4  [4.50]
Here are a few pics I took Wednesday night. The full set, including some pics of a Pagani Huayra can be found at:
http://andrewbarber.smugmug.com/Cars...2014/i-kPz8jFx

I was hoping to see the black sapphire / silverstone M4, as this is the color combo I have specified on my pre-order. Well at least the cars were locked.

Damnit! I can't wait to see these cars in person! Everyone is having a car show except where I live (in the biggest car market in the USA, Los Angeles!)

BMW didn't show anything new at the LA Auto show but pre production i3s and i8s.

Thanks for posting

Back when I had a 1M and was on the 1M forum, you wouldn't believe how many whiners there were out there, complaining that no moonroof option on the 1M was a deal breaker for them.

I love Austin Yellow on the M4 but not on the M3 for some reason. Good choice going with YMB on your M3.

Neither one of those colors is as good as Estoril though!

I like YMB in these pics! Still no idea what it actually looks like though, all of the pics on the forum are different, seems lighter than this in most of them....

In real life they are a lot lighter than the ones akbm3 posted (gorgeous shots though). The pics I posted are very close to the way they actually looked except for the one of the front of the M4 in YMB, that one came out too dark It's a very pale blue in person.

Agreed. My pics of YMB are darker / richer than this color appears in real life. This is because the pics I posted were from the original camera JPEG files (where I have color saturation boosted slightly, +2 saturation on my Nikon D7000).

It is always difficult to get an accurate depiction of color indoors.

I also have RAW versions of the pics I took. I typically don't do anything with the RAW files other than saving these "digital negatives" for archive purposes, however, I did pull the RAW file for one pics that I posted which provides a more accurate rendering of YMB. The first picture below is from the RAW file. the second picture from the JPEG file I posted previously.
