Two years later would probably be in a different car anyways. Or close to pull ahead program and just get another M3 or M4.

Wow, I'm disappointed. I was hoping to see a red... I just want red. Or lemans blue... But dear god, not those.

Very, very underwhelming. Hopefully their are new wheel options and ZCP still, but I'm guessing not.

Of all of the LCI changes, I'm most interested in the sliding cup holder cover. The drop-in piece, when bmw were including them, are a bit of a PITA

Some early buyers got them, then MIA, now back in the form of a slider. Wtf, so glad they know how to build engines, they have no clue at cup holders.

Jason has not been too informative unfortunately.

I have a feeling that there will be other colors in addition to those two individual colors (which he has yet to confirm)

Smoked Topaz would look good on a 5 series but both these colors are not to my taste for a M3. Not sporty at all

Really? I saw them in the the M4s I tested over here in the Netherlands. Seemed well constructed to me albeit you have to remove it to put a drink in.

Like I wrote in the thread that became locked(to protect the innocent). When did dark, muted and boring come back in style? What is BMW thinking with this color palette set? A Seriously strange set of M colors!

Seems like Motorsport really phoned in their contribution to the LCI.

They have also solidified the leadership for worst paint colors if they think the new ones are noteworthy. Pity!

I wouldn't expect too much in terms of color changes. 2008-2009 they deleted Sparkling Gray and added Le Mans Blue, otherwise all other colors remained the same.

Going by all the members paying $5k for individual paint. I don't blame them for not offering any good colors.

I would like a blue. The San Marino Blue was what I was hoping for.

A less smurfy blue could happen. They added Le Mans Blue in 09, even though Interlagos Blue was still available. Either one of those blues would be nice.

Horrendous. Absolutely horrendous. It's ridiculous that the now have 3 shades of brown and not one proper red, blue, or silver. What are they thinking?
