Sorry but I don't like this color, appears kinda cheap looking. Maybe make it matte.

EBII was a little more unique (being an owner of one I am biased though) and probably the lightest blue I would personally go with. I think it will be cool to see one of these on the road but couldn't see owning it for 3+ years.

Glad to see there will be a yellow but will probably pass on that as well. I do wish they had a blue more like Monte Carlo, EBII, or LeMans (otherwise how will anyone do a superman combo ), even Interlagoos. And a true red is needed in this lineup.
I agree! A true red and also another blue is needed for this lineup. Santorini or EBII are both great options and I'd select either over Yas Marina.

I hope they do come out with a few more colors options for consumers because the options right now are on both ends of the spectrum (black white or silver being a little boring... while yellow, orange or baby blue being a little crazy or extreme at least for my daily driver).

actually, here is interesting fact:

YMB is Gray.

I was told by NYC's Top Architect and Interior Designer, whom I consider a very legitimate specialist in color coordination (paint etc.,),- all Blue Colors are actually shades of Gray.
Most obvious Blues, under certain light conditions, do appear Gray. A Lighter Shade of Blue, in dim light may indeed appear Gray and vice versa, Gray can appear Blue...

I hope this isn't the only blue color available...and there certainly better be a true silver, not just silverstone (which is nice, I have it on my M6)...but think the M4 would look great in a true silver or even the old silver-grey.

Just saw this, what a horrible color. I don't think it will be better on M3.

I'm so glad others feel similarly. I was surprised to see how many people in the video thread say how it was the best color they ever saw.

Thanks for the reassurance!

Definitely wouldn't rank it in my top 10, nor would i personally buy it. But. I like it a lot. It will be even better on the M4.

You're not...I'll reserve final judgement until I see it in person but I don't really like it.
