Le Mans Blue?

What's the feeling here on Le Mans Blue? I've looked at some pics of the M5 in LMB and it looks pretty good - but not amazingly different from Interlagos Blue.

Anyone here ordering Le Mans?

I agree...I love IB and Le Mans ...but IMHO i think the M3 looks better in black or grey...i picked space grey...

I think Le Mans is a really good color. Never seen it in real life but in pictures I actually prefer it to Interlagos -- and Interlagos is gorgeous. But at the end, just like everybody else said, get the one that you know you'll truly be happy with in the long run. You don't want this to become a $70k popularity contest haha.

I don't like interlagos because of how much purple there is in it. Therefore I much prefer Le Mans blue. Of course Estoril blue would be even better, but that seems dead completely.

Yeah, I read in the LSB e92 thread by Will that BMW actually discontinued it due to health reasons or something or other. Really don't get why, but it sure was a beautiful color.

Personally though LSB will always have my heart.

Its not an M3 of course, but its as close as you'll get until they hit the streets. The bonus is that you can compare nicely against Montego which is a color you've probably seen around some.

When I was younger, I dreamed of owning an E39 M5 in LeMans Blue. HAWT!

It's definitely a tough decision between LMB and IB. I think it's impossible to go wrong either way.

Thanks. This makes my decision even tougher but the LeMans maybe the ONE vs. Jerzy "Blue" or Silverstone. Glad I have a few months to agonize over this.

Le mans is a good choice to go for. It's more of a subtle blue compare to Interlagos.
