IIRC, the pics of the e92 LSB were in full daylight, which makes LSB look "smurf" in color. I think the only reason you guys like it better on this e90 is because there is no lighting and so the LSB looks darker and richer with more depth.
Having owned an e46 LSB, my opinion is it looked better when it was darker out and not full sunlight. That color so depends on the lighting. One of the reasons I sold it to get my e92 in JZB.
