I'm not a fan of yellow in general
But your car looks really nice
Love the contrast between the yellow and the black trim
Any interior pics?
I like that yellow stripe on the seats
You should get the performance steering wheel, the older one with the yellow stripe

Here's a pic

Hope you like them

Nice man. I luv your garage and car color. Congrats. :beer:

I'll get some interior pics for you and post them up. The yellow stripe really sets the interior off. Sometimes plain black can be a little dull, but I like a contrasting interior / exterior but the yellow trim really sets it off.

As for the performance wheel - I actually seen that a few weeks back when searching the forum. I notice that people are quite into their mods, where I've not even scratched the surface yet - I did think that that steering wheel would be an ideal and discreet way to get involved

Dakar and LSB are awesome colors and should have been standard choices on this car. Heads still turn to check out e46 M's wearing these colors. The current palette is bland and not very exclusive for such an awesome car. (Although I love my LeMans.)

I hate yellow cars. All of them.

Except this one.

Something about it just works. Bold choice. I like it.

Congats!!! Gorgeous car.

Would be such a hard choice for me between this and Laguna Seca on the E92 M3.

Cheers for the comments everyone! ...

It's funny, because I never used to notice yellow cars before, but now I seem to notice the odd BRIGHT yellow SEAT or FIAT!

As requested, here's some interior shots - You can see how the yellow on the seats looks brighter in some shots, which is the same as with the paint work on the car.

Hope you like them



















Thanks.

It makes me sick when I see how good the US cars look without the front plates! Although we haven't got the reflectors over here!

Do the UK M3s have PDC in the front?

Beautiful color, by the way. I wish I had that here in the US.
