How 'bout Frozen MCB?

I would definitely have MCB up high on the list, but would want to check out whatever reds, yellows, oranges, blues they might happen to offer.

Easy for the person without an M3 to say that.

I really like my AW but it's my second white E90 and I'm getting a bit bored with it. Good safe choice, though. It's popular for a reason. I'm not a huge Space Grey fan but I do think it looks awesome on the E90.




Smurf doesn't like blue? haha
Smurfs like flat blues, not shiny blues. I have a LSB M3 and a White M3, so I basically have both parts of a Smurf when you put them next to each other.

I never really noticed or liked white cars until I saw AW M3. That's what I went with. AW looks fantastic, but I believe it's the most popular color if that bothers you. JB is my favorite, but I'm sure it is a hassle to maintain. I really liked the LMB, but couldn't see myself driving it everyday. SG and SS are both awesome.

Hmm, I guess every color on this car rocks.

Yeah, the way i see it is.... white yeah its standard, many card have white....... & it seems like alot of people on the forum have white. but....... seriously , keeping it real & honest... how many M3's do you see on a daily basis??? i probably have only seen one this month, ... but anyway, a white m3 which is a beautiful car from what i see may be played out on here, but not in our own real world. So i am going with AW

I won't lie, the AW DOES look good but E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E has one. I prefer to be more original. Honjestly, if I could have gotten Montego Blue I'd have gone that way. It's got a bit more pop than even LMB.

Then again, the idea to paint the car Sunfire Metallic (the copper color that was on the PT Turbo) like I did one of my Passats has crossed my mind. So did the Murano Green (Audi A3) I used on the top half of my second Passat.

Without rambling too much longer, midrange and dark colors with some metallic or a pearl in them look GREAT on an M3 and few people have them.

But how does everyone have AW? i havent seen one aw m3 since 08 in the streets lol. Not everyone has a bmw, especially an M3 , so the chances of u seeing the effect of everyone having aw, are extremely low. In theory everyone may have one, but when i have yet too see one this year in the street, ill feel like im the one one with an AW M3.

I ordered my 2011 E92 in SG. I am currently in a jet black E90 which I will never do again. Too much maintenance!

Melbourne red if you want to have an aggressive, rare, beautiful color.

Interlagos? Meh. Lemans and Monte Carlo? Very nice colors.

Alpine white if you want the same car as everyone else. Nothing special. Color played out a long time ago.

Space gray? lol no.
