Ever since the E36 M3 I've always like the Dakar Yellow. Much better than the E46 Phoenix Yellow (mustard yellow? puke yellow?). Dakar should be a standard (but M only) color. I figured that Dakar might stand out too much and ruin the "stealthiness" (or perhaps just the conservativeness) of the cars looks. But, seeing these pictures I've changed my mind because that color on that car just looks so right.
Kudos to the owner, his CA and to IND. Great job. Can't wait until Friday.
