It's basically a color preference thread at this point.

I prefer a black M3 over a white M3 given only these two choices. I hate both styles.
yes basically that is my problem. i do not know what color to get and it has been stressing me out. so i turned here to get some opinions. white and black seem to be the most popular so i thought it would be between those two colors but if you have any other ideas let me know im all ears

I vote reverse storm-troop. Black car with white wheels, grills, gills, and white ceramic exhaust tips.

Itll set you apart from the pack.

I rarely see another E92 M3 let alone a white one never mind a white one with black wheels and carbon/black bits and bobs everywhere. In the real world (Yorkshire, wet, cloudy, bloody cold most of the year) my car is extremely individual. Wierdly its only when I go on an M3 forum that there are loads of white.....drum roll please...................M3s. What a surprise.

I mean, what's next - "I'm sick of owning an M3, everytime I come on this M3 forum there are loads of people who own M3s. They are common as muck on here."

Hello?
So very True

when I do see M3s in my area they are always white. but it's to be expected, because to them the car is a fashion accessory like their white ipod.

Am I the only one that has yet to see a "murdered out" M3 here?? The closest was the one on page 2 but you can't black everything out and then put big-ass chrome/polished/silver wheels on and try to pass it off as "murdered." If you're going to go with a theme, it needs to be 100%. No half-assing it.

Now, I don't know about you but I didn't buy my M3 for anyone but me. I don't give two shits what the membership of the forum thinks is the best looking color. They bought their own in a color combo they like and I got mine in a combo I like. If Sparkling graphite was still available I'd have gone that route. It wasn't so I did LeMans Blue. For a color that lasted more than a year LMB seems to be the least used color. Does that mean it's unpopular or just looked over because it's not an M specific color? I don't care. I liked it, I picked it. You should pick the color you like.
