That's why i'm considering to switch to AW I just think that AY will be too flashy and everyone will be staring at me and thinking like "that guy wanna show off" or something like this. Moreover, i guess that i will get tired from it after a couple month. However, i still wanna see it in flesh to make my final decision!

If they don't like the color, they can buy their own M4. The way I look it at is if I owned my own private island with a track, what color car would I drive?

Life is too short to care what other people think.

I absolutely agree with you at this point. But you know, there is another more complicated thing that makes me switch to safer color. Since many people are jealous and the color draws a lot of attention, some weird things might happen...The alternative is to go with AY and then wrap it if i get tired from color.

I saw an Austin Yellow M4 in person today, followed by a Yas Marina Blue and Black.

Let me just say, the Austin Yellow is far nicer than I thought!!
It is a magnificent color that morphs into variations of metallic yellow depending on the lighting condition.

For anyone that has selected an AY. Congratulations!!!! You won't be disappointed! :-)

As a side note, the YMB looked far better and punchier than the black, but appeared quite pale in certain lighting conditions. I wish this was a shade darker. It is however, my 2nd choice after the AY.

I know exactly what you are talking about. This has been the primary reasoning for going with silver, black, and white in the past. But I've grown tired of worrying about what others think. I'm not going for attention, I just like cars and wanted something different that I really like. While M cars are nice and certain groups of folks appreciate them, most people don't really know what they are. They look like dressed up versions of the lesser siblings. I think Porsches, Vettes, Jags, etc are much more flashy. The point in all of this was simply to get ready for some ridicule from the peanut gallery. AY is more polarizing than I thought. I think I'll end up having the fun with the peanuts, er 'nuts, but wanted to throw it out there for thought.

And yes, those most recent pictures really look good to me. I can't help but like this color in the pictures. I tried to go another direction, but kept coming back (for punishment, I guess).

I hear you man. I feel the same way. I wanted that color from the moment I saw photos of the Pebble beach reveal. I want to play it incognito so to speak but am having a hard time forgetting this color.

Saw one while driving to EWR on GSP. Gorgeous color and the car looked exotic compared to other vehicles in traffic.

This car is gorgeous, finally saw it in person. I want to switch to AY... and I thought I would hate AY. It. Is. Beautiful.



Sorry for the compression from photobucket... they suck.

I did the day before I went to 150. SO is very nice though. AY is just very unique. Hopefully it will age well.

I just saw AY at my dealer's place yesterday. I don't know what to say actually. Color is very unique and special, definitely looks better and less flashy in person. I have even noticed a little bit of matter finish lol Although, I'm still happy that I have changed AY to AW because AY is still too "noisy" color, it will draw a lot of attention for sure and people who like flashy, exclusive color, they will definetly love AY. But it's not for DD for sure. Everyone who expects smth rather than yellow/goldy color from AY, I'm suggesting you to change your order.
