Well, I'll be the lone dissenting voice here. I'm not a fan of the E92 in LSB. That color is done. In 2001, it was cool on the E46 M3. But it's not standing the test of time.

Agree with CMOS. Laguna seca blue looked great on the e46. From the photoshop it only looks ok on the e92.

Would love to see a ruby black M3.

Damn Will, that is AWESOME! Great way to look out for us forum members. I am excited for the member who purchases that car.

I'd love another Phoenix Yellow ///M3 or a Sterling Grey ///M3.

I wonder if something has changed for MY2009 to make this easier now? Either way prepare to be bombarded with requests on how to do this. Actually, I am tempted to have another look at the BMW color list now to see what's available.
Not true. Somebody purchased a Dakar Yellow E92 coupe at Peabody.

See this thread.

As a former E46 M3 owner in Laguna Seca Blue I don't know how I feel about this. As much as I loved my E46 M3 in Laguna Seca Blue, I don't think I would want the E92 M3 in that color if given the option. It is a great color though:

Nice!

Something must have changed from a few months ago then, since no one could get anywhere with custom colors. Maybe someone at BMW NA was reading and opened up the proper channels.

Somebody already has one. There are a couple of threads with pictures of a PY E92 ///M3.

That's my belief as well. I'm glad that somebody is listening, because I'd gladly pay for a custom color before I pay for some of the other options offered.

I wonder how a Sterling Grey, PY or Estoril sedan would look!!!???!!!

Yeah, I saw that, it looked amazing. I think it would be cool if they brought it to the US though.

so it's possible to order new colors for good? is there a limit as to how many they will do or is this a temporary thing?

You guys - let me clarify - this is not an official thing. I definitely had to pull some strings. It is not like everybody here is going to order an M3 and get whatever color they want. This is the exception - not the rule

Will, the color combo should have been this:

Exterior: Aegean Blue or Estoril Blue
Interior: Ecru or Champagne

That would have been a STUNNING car. I saw an E46 M3 in Estoril and Ecru and it was the most unreal combo ever. Leguna Seca frankly looks cheesy to me.
