I considered the black leather, but decided to go ahead with more of a contrast inside the car.

You're right. In all the excitement of taking pictures I forgot that one.

Here's a story I came across. I don't know exactly what it is saying, but after running it through one of the translation websites (which didn't work very well), I think I agree with most of it.

just like when i first saw LSB E46 M3, i absolutely hated it. However it is now my favorite E46 M3 color, so I am sure this will grow on me as time goes. CONGRATS!

its better on e46, it might look better in person but i don't think that it will look as good as e46. if it gets vorsteiner goodies, wheels and all that other stuff it MIGHT be better than e46.

I'm all for nostalgia and whatnot...but this is just not good looking any way you put it. This color was not meant for the e92 in any kind of way.

Have to agree, it worked on the E46. Just kind of seems out of place on the E92.

Love seeing it done though.

That Blue with the white roof reminds me of the current model Toyota FJ40!
