not if you're looking at a yellow e93 or a blue e92. I personally wouldn't own an e93....ever....regardless of color.

I think my color preference is obvious. (SB was my second choice.) But E92 vs. E93 is a much bigger question. They simply are different cars, no?

Santorini coupe ALL DAY over the yellow 'vert. I'm not a yellow or convertible fan at all, so this is like a pink nightmare for me.

I'm partial to the yellow since it looks a hell of a lot like my old 370 but I kinda like the blue for an M3

Get the coupe, gas mileage is bad enough in that, but will be worse in the vert...however if your in a place where its always sunny, maybe the vert is ideal?

I'm not a fan of Santorini blue at all. I would go Speed Yellow.

Speed Yellow is better than Dakar (which is quite possibly the most disgusting and ugliest yellow ever painted onto any automobile), but the blue still blows it away.

Dont really like either color, but my vote goes to the yellow if I had to choose. The santorini is to light for my taste and yellow can only really be pulled off by P or F cars.
This is just my opinio.

My choice would be Speed Yellow, more rare and it I bet it looks with both the top on or off.

Santorini Blue, but it also helps that it's an E92 vs an E93. Just my humble opinion of course.
