Where'd you see the info about '09s being delivered in Europe? I haven't been paying too close attention but I figured it be pretty big news on the forum.

Can't wait to see the LMB.. I think its not a bad colour, at least on the configurator. Anyways, what do you guys think about a Foxred extended interior with the LMB colour on the outside? cheers!

It seems to look good in the press pics, from what little we can see. monsta has a similar IB/FR car, and there is another member of the forum planning on an LB/FR-ext E93.

You mean owner or pre-production pics and not like the PR ones on the first page of this thread?
Exactly. The photos taken by BMW for PR-purpose tend to not be even close to the real-life impression of the color.

Ex.


Compared to a "owner-taken" photo of the same color

I understand you, though I don't think the BMW ones are any less valid than the owner's ones. Its just different lighting and different quality of photography. Check out the official Le Mans threads here:

You'll see plenty of the same variation in color.

Agree. I really liked my mate's Avus Blue e39 M5 - great colour.

Anyway, I think that LeMans is a great color, but I don't really understand why they ditched SparkG for it. Why not just add LeMans and keep SparkG? The color choices are really limited.

Thanks for the pics, South. If only one of those pics ventured into the inside and showed us the i-drive. I know that somebody knows the answer to this!!!!
i had both sparkling grey and lemans blue. lemans blue by far superior to sparkling graphite mettalic. i found lemans blue superior to interlogos blue IB . IB just doesnt sparkle like lemans.
