I plan on the 18" wheels. I know the Interlagos blue is supposed to have a purplish hue at times--difficult to appreciate on the small 6" paint sample that the dealer showed me. I find little difference between the 2 colors based on the samples, & internet pictures of the two colors are not all that different. I considered Jerez Black and Alpine White as well, but really think I would like one of the blues. I had an Avus Blue E36 M3 before I got my current E46 Titanium silver--I'm really tired of the silver (approaching 9 years old, and too many of silver cars around), so I don't think I want Silverstone (too similar).
There is a huge difference in the two colors. Although IB is an "M" specific color and less common, I think Le Mans Blue is much nicer. Yesterday I saw a 335I in LMB with the "M" package and Saddle Brown leather....WOW!
IB looks a little strange to me in broad daylight but at night looks incredible.
