I got my LMB M3 in October 2010. It is an 09 that was imported from the US. Got it with 7800 miles. Pretty much loaded except for extended Leather.

Bone stock when I got it (actually, there are 15mm and 12mm spacers on the car in this picture)



In my driveway with my old E46 before it went back off lease



As it was in the fall before putting on winter rolling stock. Mods include OEM CF Splitters and Competition Spoiler, GC Coilover Conversion Kit, Volk LE37T (with 15mm spacers up front - wheels were from my E46), matte black gills and grills and color matched reflectors. I have since installed my VRS type II style JL diffuser and had the reflector delete done (actually, I had to have my front bumper along with my driver's front fender, driver's headlight and fender liner replaced due to an unfortunate encounter with a 2005 Honda Civic - he turned left in front of me. Totally unavoidable. Deemed 100% his fault) to get the Eurobumper look. I also have new side mirror covers with CF in M5 pattern, LCI tails and RAC RG63s (street) and Advan RS Dark Gunmetal (track). Come spring, once all this is installed and the car is properly washed and detailed, I will take new pics.



I love my LeMans Blue M3. The color really pops. It is a rare bird amongst all the white, black and grey.

Black or Palladium Interior?

I'm this close to pulling the trigger on an e92 M3 Coupe in Lemans, but I can't decide on an interior color. Obviously Black is the safe choice, but I've had all black interiors on every car I've ever owned, and tbh I'm a bit tired of it...but it still does look good, and wears extremely well.

The other option is Palladium, which I've yet to see in person, and is pretty difficult to find many pictures of. Can anyone with a Palladium interior chime in here and provide some interior pics...preferably with the door open showing the blue in the same frame? From the few pics I've seen, I think I prefer the regular Palladium leather instead of the extended, as I don't think I like the way it looks beneath the dash (console looks good though).

For those of you with the combo, any regrets? I'm going to go for a more sporty rather than luxury look for the car (carbon spoiler, carbon lip, gunmetal wheels), so I'm also not sure how well Palladium will fit in with that too.

Welcome to the boards. I don't have Palladium, but here are some Silver shots. I really like the color combination...can't really go wrong with blue/grey-ish combo.

Much thanks dafunguy! Those help a bunch. Your color scheme is actually exactly what I was debating. I incorrectly thought all the silvers were named palladium, not just the 2 tone silver and black...which I'm actually not a huge fan of.

Your car looks great!

It is a rare bird indeed I was at the meet last Saturday in Oakville and mine was the only LMB amongst some 50+ cars.

Some people ask me if it was a "individual" I said no, shows how few there are. I love the colour under different light exposures it changes.

Got mine last year in November in Toronto it's a fully loaded 2012 with MT.

Perhaps we see you at the next meet so I wont be so alone with the only LMB.

Was this interior FR an individual selection on this LMB?

If I go to one car I would order LMB and FR interior if I can here in Canada. I understand if you don't have the answer I will check with the local dealership here.

Thanks, Rolf

One of your posted pictures below. It looks real nice, my 2011 AW interior was FR and I liked it

FoxRed works GREAT with LMB. Since I did European Delivery, and did not see FoxRed before ordering I was a bit apprehensive. As soon as I saw the car I knew I made the right call. I would do it again without any doubt. I highly recommend FR. Others, who are much more conservative with the color choices also like it very much.

AGREED

Pics of my '11 Lemans Blue/ Fox Red E90. It's actually a very nice contrast in person. My friends when they see it in person always say "It looks better than it sounds." No tint either because I like seeing the red leather everytime I walk up to the car.

Took a photo shoot last night here is my baby :)

EDIT

Sorry ...... traded my LMB April 6th for a AW with M-DCT so that the wife can also drive her the 10% of the time that she goes shopping by herself. I had to go with AW and Black leather it was her choice ... this way I will be able to continue driving my beloved M3 after the Benz is gone. We plan to go to only one car. You will see once you retire you too will only need one car

Besides it is nice to have someone to help with the driving on long vacation and road trips

Tell me how did you manage to get the red fox interior with the LMB, was it a special order? or is your exterior colour not LMB?

Thanks, Rolf

PS. I had AW and FR on my stock 2011 I traded.
