I think I saw you going north on I5 this morning, btw Tualitin and Wilsonville around 7:15. I was in a white e92 335 heading south.

Looking good man, looking real good!

You're not really changing it, just viewing it "old school" when there was no colour, just black and white.

Dakar M3 Edition Model

Too bad for your exclusivity, Scott, that anyone can soon order Dakar as an M3 Edition Model (for a six month period).

Yes it looks like we may be seeing more Dakar Yellow M3s on the road. I think that is a good thing and I still don't expect to see them everyday. There seems to be mixed reports about whether these models will be available in the USA. Scott Bradley says they will NOT make it to the USA and he will eat the brochure if he is wrong.

It wasn't too hard. Just find a dealer who knows how to get special order cars and is willing to do it. Then place your order and wait 3 months. Dakar isn't any harder to get than Atlantis, Brilliant White, Laguna Seca Blue, etc., but there had been some skepticism about whether Dakar would look good on E9X M3.

Thanks! I'm looking for a color that stands out but i'm tired of the metallic colors so dakar and laguna look really nice and flat. How does dakar look in person?

I have to reawaken this thread because i was about to order a red m3 vert but when my parents saw this color they ORDERED me to get the DY. I love the theme you have performed on it and it was actually what i was hoping to do on my soon to be vert

My questions are:
can u get the DY on a vert?
anyone seen a DY vert?
After ordering the DY can you still opt for the speed cloth seats as i think those 2 options will do great together?
After all those special order items, would it be too much to ask to have it EDed?

Yes, you can get Dakar on a vert and you could also get speed cloth with it. I really like speed cloth and I think it would go great with Dakar. I came very close to getting it myself. Having said that, it is a little harder for me to envision the speed cloth with the vert, but it might work. Also, I tend to think the Dakar Yellow looks best modded. I would not have opted for the color if I planned to keep it stock. If you do it, be sure to post pics, I would love to see it.

yes its on the drawing board im using ur car as reference. would it be too much to ask for part numbers. eg brakes "the italian brembo website drove me coucou". Also i envision the trunk lip will be different on the vert.

You are correct about the speed cloth not working on the vert. I have to see it in person. if its color is significantly lighter than the black leather then i won't do it. but if its close or the same shade then it will be strongly considered.

One more thing, could u pm me a rough estimate of how much the total mods cost. im just asking about the large mods such as brakes, tires, body kits, clear bra. ballpark +/- 2k is fine. its important for me to know how much i need to budget

Also to photoshop savvy ppl on this forum i would appreciate it if you could show me how the trunk lip would look on a DY vert with the topdown. don't want it looking like a california ferrari JLo butt ;p

thx in advance you got me super excited about this project i have brewing
