Phoenix Yellow M3 with

Thought some of you guys would enjoy seeing a Phoenix Yellow E92....the color works really well on the E92 with it's more angular lines. Indoors it's really yellow...outside much more of a gold. That's a Fox Red interior...wasn't sure about it when we sprayed it but it's actually one of the best parts on the car...you just don't expect a red interior to work on a Phoenix Yellow car but it does.

Personally don't care for the Fox Red in a Phoenix Yellow car. Personal taste. Like the yellow tho.

you know how some colors people say look way better in person instead of photo's. when i first saw the E46 M3 press photos and the actual thing on an overcast day, it was the exact opposite of that sentiment. this color looks great in photos especially if you play with the hue/contrast a little bit. in person, man i guess to say the least its a polarizing color. now LSB on the other hand…. ;-)

Never liked that color. Looks like throw-up.

However, it does look better on the e9x than the e46...IMO.

Am I correct in saying that this car did not come from the factory in PY? What color was it originally?

Does show how such views are personal and subjective: I much prefer this color on the E46.

Actually, I was just trying to be nice. I think it is just a terrible color. I think this color would look like crap on any car. Reminds me of puke.

Would have been perfect if you had a black interior, but that's one cute Jack Russell you have there! I have a girl Jack Russell that looks exactly like that.
