What color M3 would you get if you would have to buy it second time ?

If you would have to get a (second) new M3 what color would you get ? First car lets say was crashed, stolen, or lemoned ... would you get the second one in the same color ?

I would probably go for Alpine White if I were going for a 2nd M3...Because the color white gives a brand new, pure start! But it looks like you already have white on your current M3 "doba_s", so I would go for Jerez Black since it will be a completely different color compared to white. Sometimes a dramatic change is needed.

My car was a phenominal deal on a car off the showroom floor(Alpine White), so limited choices. However, if I was ordering a car to spec I would go individual, Coolwater for the sedan, Estoril for the coupe. Of the choices given here, definately AW!

I originally wanted SG but then was convinced to AW. Now there are 5 white vehicles at my house. I'm still very happy with AW though. hehe. If I were to get another BMW, I would certainly give SS a try.

Really like JzB and also that it's an M-only colour - so would probably default to it. But others that look good and suit me would be Space and AW. On a mad day Melbourne Red (w/ Bamboo)

Jackolo,
If you only wash and detail your m3, then you will see a huge difference between your car and the other 4 white vehicles. It has worked out well for me!

Question IB FTW?

Wow, am I the only one who's going to say Interlagos Blue?

Same with me, I got such a great deal I didn't have much choice. BUT I did luck out that I got my #1 choice of color though. (not to mention just about ALL the options I wanted, though sunroof and DCT would have been nice in a daily driver)

If I had a "do over" I would get Interlagos Blue again, hands down. Unless I ever actually see LeMans Blue in person and it just blows me away, then I'd get that.

No matte Space - only metallic. It is an awesome colour on this car and goes well w/ the stock 18"s I went back-and-forth on JzB -vs- SpG, what tipped the choice was that JzB was an M-only colour.
