2018 F80 M3  [5.00]
1 of 2 | Individual Hera Mica Blue F80 M3 Build Thread

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Well, after an incredibly long wait (6 months), my car is finally here. Now that I've finished most of the things I want to do, its time to present it.

I had no idea what this color would truly look like in real life, and I also had never seen Cohiba Brown in person either. You could say this whole order was done totally blind, but I wanted to be unique, and unique is definitely what I got.

I can all but confirm that this car is 1 of 2 in the USA in it's color, unless there is someone else hiding with one.

The Specs
Blue Hera Mica Metallic
Cohiba Brown Leather
Executive Package
Drivers Assistance Package
19" Silver Wheels
6-Speed Manual

The Mods
Status Gruppe Rear Diffuser
Status Gruppe Diffuser Extensions
Mode Carbon M4 Style Trunk Spoiler
Supreme Power 90mm Exhaust Tips
Front Reflectors and Keyhole Delete Painted to Match
OEM Black Grills and Side Vent Gills
Full Car Clear Bra in SunTek PPF-C with Ceramic Pro coating
SunTek Carbon Tint, 40%

and without further ado, the pictures! These have no editing for color correction, and were shot on a Nikon D810 in RAW. I believe they are very color accurate, unlike a lot of the other photos I've seen of this color.



















and a little look at the color in the shade/rain...






and thats it for now! Hopefully I'll be doing some more shoots with the car in the coming months as well as installing some new mods like a front lip.

If you'd like to see more frequent updates I'm on Instagram at @heramicaf80

7/16 Update, Heres a new rolling shot one of my friends took last weekend:

My SA was trying to get me to order this color back in February. Ended up going with San Marino instead, would love to see these two colors side by side.

Great build though, interior looks awesome!

Here you go...

Hera Mica changes in every light - very difficult to photograph.
