Idk I think it will be very unique. I would rather have a light blue over a very dark blue. I guess it depends we're you live too. I don't think many people reaction will be like that's a ugly color but a awesome car. I think people will like the car more for its color!

I suppose location plays a role. In SoCal, a metallic baby blue car wouldn't be cause for concern (..especially in sea of yellows, blues, matte colors and the occasional chrome). In Oklahoma, you might get heckled a bit.

The blue is beautiful, and a man can pull it of. If your a member of the other option, it'll never fly. This matter has been up for discussion all over this forum, for example in the Vancouver carshow thread.

Don't like it. It looks like a smurf. Monte Carlo blue from the M5 would have been perfect. Sigh.

I wish I could drive one for Easter and dress up in a bunny costume. The kids would love it at the parade...

Love it I ordered it. People are hating on it but it is tied for second most popular on our current order tracking thread. Most people that are hating probably want the same old boring AW. AW lovers seem to haters for some reason. Maybe because they are angry that they can't break their mold and are worried about what co workers will think. Do it you'll love it.

and that's why LSB's seem to bring more money then every other boring color E46 M3. Good choice on that.

Now if your LSB had cinnamon leather...yummm

Its amazing in person. The color changes dramatically between a powder blue and a deeper blue that resembles Monte Carlo Blue. The clear coat on this color looks especially thick and shiny, almost like it has more layers of clear on it (compared to my previous Mineral Grey, Glacier Silver, AW vehicles).

The color gets hated on occasionally-usually for the first couple minutes seeing it, then opinions start to change. Some love it immediately.

I have always owned siver, grey and white cars because I like that those colors show all of the details of the vehicle. This new blue has me completely sold as it looks very motorsport (almost the same color of the light blue M stripe in the "///M" logo). The color has been described as "Rude" which I actually think is great. The car in general is rude- its loud, aggressive, menacing and this color is almost an oxymoron in a sense, since some might find it to be feminine until they hear and experience it for themselves.

My E92 is Jerez Black and I love it. I don't want white or gray or black. Everyone has those colors although the car looks great in them. For me, YMB is just too damn baby blue. If you love it, then happy for you. Not hating, just isn't for me and I dunno why the color choices were so polarizing and limited.

I saw interlagos blue M3 today so glad they didn't go that blue route. It is way to dark and doesn't look good. Glad they went the lighter route.
