Lightbulb Any Speed Yellow M3 owners on here? Saw one and love it!

As much as I love white cars, I saw a BMW Individual color m3 the other day that really stunned me in a good way!

I'm not talking about the dakar yellow but the Porsche Speed Yellow!

Post up some pictures if you guys have one - this is one color that I would love to one one day if you know someone selling. Dealer can't order E90 sedans anymore sadly....

I personally like that color as well. My last car was chicane yellow and I love yellow cars.

Now the pheonix yellow on the other hand...

I remember seeing the Speed Yellow M3 posted while it was at the dealer

I have a buddy who ordered a Atacama Yellow E93 a few months back, its in production this week. What sucks is that he paid a premium for the last order spot for a E93 back before they said they were going to make the 2013 model....

Good color to do a vinyl wrap in. Get the effect without fully committing.

I loved yellow on C6's and wound up buying one and regretting it. Kind of felt silly in it, and all the attention it attracted. I still think it looks good, but would be hesitant to get yellow on a car again unless it was something crazy like an Exige (which you WANT people to see due to its small size) or Ferrari/Lambo.

Every time I drive my buddies I want one but then my wife reminds me we have 1 toddler and one more on the way

Anyways I really think the x5m is in my future, how do you like yours?

Btw I was at Austin's place over the weekend and he says what's up.


So I guess going back on topic no one on this forum owns a speed yellow m3?

Speed Yellow looks like French's Yellow Mustard to me, but to each his own.

Isn't this Atacama?

There's an Atacama Yellow Z4 at Tischer that I always see.

No the ones that I posted are Speed Yellow (Porsche Color), I think the Atacama is a little bit of a darker hue to it? There's a Atacama yellow E90 that was recently delivered a few months ago and my friend should have his E93 in about a month depending on how long it sits at the port....

Funny, to me Speed Yellow looks great on this car but I DON'T like it at all on Porches. In fact I may get a new Boxster in Corvette yellow- my personal favorite yellow( along with Ferrari).

I would love to Speed Yellow and Atacama Yellow in the same picture. It's hard to figure out which one is darker, more saturated, etc. from comparing different pictures. It looks like Atacama might have a bit more orange in it, but again, it's impossible to determine that from different pictures.

Atacam looks very very different in person= hard to pin down I'd say more of a "toy" color like a very bright but slightly pastel yellow. More of a "lady's color" IMO

speed yellow is one of my fav colors on cars, especially porsche colors, like mexico blue and gulf blue/orange and the more "conservative" color of aqua blue.

that being said, i know it's to each his own, but yellow color is for smaller cars. don't like it on big cars (sedan size and up). nice color on the m3 tho
