I've seen a Yellow E46 M3 before and it was atrocious.

that's because the yellow for the e46 itself was atrocious. phoenix yellow was more of a mustard yellow/green than anything. the rumor was that they'd release a phoenix yellow 2 this time, which wouldn't look quite so disgusting. seems bmw didn't come through. but dakar yellow II on the new m3 would look great.

Is Jerez Black somewhat blueish?
If yes, it's my choice.
If not, I would go for Silverstone.

coyot,

yes. jerez black incorporates more of a blue sheen than those found in the normal or carbon blacks. the jerez black formula has a higher blue composition than traditional black. click the link below for specific color composition values.

bump

now with people placing orders, and real life pictures of every color available, i'm curious to know if people have changed their mind about their color choices.

I do like the AW, but it seems everyone else does too.

I think I'll go with Sparkling Graphite. Not too far off from what I have now. I really would like to see the Fox Red interior in person.

as good as white looks, I can't bring myself to do it. My dad wants me to get a white one b/c he loves the contrast with the roof, and I agree. But I was sooo pissed I didn't wait an extra month for my car to get it in black, and I won't make the same mistake again. Jerez Black for me b/c its so close to CB, which I love.

I've loved Carbon Black but oy, the work to keep it clean. Probably going red, silverstone or maybe IB. I really like the M-exclusives.
