kudos to you for being original. I don't think the color suits the car at all...but that's just my opinion. As long as you're happy!

Thanks for the replys, glad it's not universally hated. Lol. I wanted to do something I knew no one else would have.
And yes, I live in Manoa

Another pic of how dark the car looks in some light

This color combination confuses me. I think you've been able to get so far out there with your choice that I literally have nothing to say or think about it. I certainly don't like it but I don't hate it the way I hate E90s. Do you truly think it looks better than the traditional colors offered? Or do you only award individuality points?

I think a darker, classic color is really not going 'way out there'.
Wanted something unique and not a skittles colored car, like most of the other Individual M3's are.

I like it.

Very similar to special edition e36 M3 GT from 1995... (which was actually BRG)

Great choice. BMW has some of the best Greens ever made IMHO.

Saw it at the dealer before you picked her up. I like it a lot as it reminds me of my old e46 M3, which was oxford green metallic 2 over cinnamon.


Btw you should bring her out to a meet sometime. Would love to all over her again.

Great colour! If it were me, I'd matte black the wheels though.

Either way, big thumbs up to those that fork-out for individual colours, it's not about what the group thinks, its about what the individual thinks.
