We have a bunch on M3's in Chicago and I get complements in my SSII all the time. I was on a trip to Lincoln Nebraska(1100 mile round trip) and i think i got a complement at every gas station I stopped at which we all know was alot hehe.
At first I did't want the SSII but the deal was so good I couldn't pass it up. Since then, I am glad because it is a ///M color and it doesn't blend in like all the other black, white, gray ones. When I pulled up to the house the first thing the wife said was "You bought a baby blue m3?" now she really likes the color. The best is when she gets complements on "her" M3. She is always eager to tell me when people say something to her.
