I have loved LeMans since the E39 M5 had it, and have wanted a car with it ever since then.
Its a great color, with lots of depth and metallic that looks marvelous in any lighting.
I get plenty of compliments, from all types.
I got Oyster with my LeMans exterior, but if I was getting an M would go for Bamboo, or Champagne.
I dont see it anymore difficult to maintain than my Alpine E90, or Black Sapphire E90, Or Silver Gray E86M.
