Thanks for the positive encouragement. It was a snap decision at the last minute but I think it's the right call for me. I saw a MW M4 in person today and it sealed it for me. MW is nice but you can barely tell the difference from alpine white and it just blends into the crowd took much. AY also seems like it will hide dirt well unlike a black car.

Car looks great as is, so don't worry about it. I am pretty sure I will go black grill and side markers, but that's about it.

After seeing pics of AY with Black Kidney Grills, I am definitely doing this to mine

Congrats on "making the leap"

Thanks. I can tell this is the right choice. I have stopped obsessively looking at other color threads and am not hunting for that individual color that blows me away. I'm at peace and it will look great with my black leather interior.

That is drool worthy! Almost filthy
The F80 in AY is such a looker. Simply my most favourite color.

That color + F80 flares = winning combo. If for some reason the M2 doesn't work out for me, it's not like I'll be crying myself to sleep when I add an AY F80 to the garage. Beautiful car!

^I wasn't sure a polished lip would look good on AY, but that totally proves me wrong. Stunning car you got there.

Is it what you plan to do for your F80 now instead of signal green?

Still never seen it in person but these photos are some of what I found.

Yea, I'm planning on going Austin Yellow over Signal Green for a few reasons.
- SG is $4500 more than AY, and that's a lot of $ that could be going towards the other M's
- I luckily got to see an SG F80 at the Performance Center. Don't get me wrong, it's more or less what's I expected and I liked it. But everytime I see AY in real life, it's always THAT much better IRL than in the pics. They really do it 0 justice.
- Heard there's a pretty long wait for Indvidual cars

You really really owe it to yourself to try to find one to see in person, preferably when it's sunny out. It's an absolutely stunning color.

I'm more or less set on an AY/Cloth/6MT/CP at the moment.
