I've been told not to slay myself over the decision but it is a pretty big decision! I feel like, especially with these two given colors, personality has a lot to do with it. I'm pretty laid back, easy going, so I feel as if the blue satisfies that side of me. On the other hand, the red is fiery, outgoing, flashy, the opposite of my personality; and part of me is itching for something new.

I understand this post may be a lil ghey but maybe somebody could point out something I'm missing. I checked out both in person today and they both are fabulous in the light! Anyway, all insight is greatly valued. I have about a month before I order so it's not entirely a rush. Thanks fellas.



Crap, wrong section. Go me. General forum please!
Are you still trying to make a decision? People have personalities. I'm going to guess that you do too. Below are what some say colors of cars say about the owner. Using the same metric on car brands (for giggles, of course), perhaps "the ultimate driving machine" slogan would be better paired to a fleet of cars that exuded sexiness, high-energy, speedy, dynamic rather than the sedated traits more peculiar to Hondas and Toyotas.
Here's something to consider.

Vibrant Red: Sexy, speedy, high-energy and dynamic (edit: Think M cars)
Light to Mid-Blue: Cool, calm, faithful, quiet (edit: What all Hondas/ Toyotas should be painted )

Melbourne sucks. THat touch of orange ruins the paint IMO.

Imola Red or nothing.

I strongly suggest you to choose LMB.

Blue M3's of any generation always look SICK

Do no repeat the toss.
Haha, this is what I was going to suggest! It always works for me. I voted for LMB. It's one of the most beautiful blue I've ever seen (Monte Carlo blue is even better)! If I didn't get AW, I would have went with blue for sure. Red is fierce but I think it will get old. Based on how you described your personality, I think you have to go with blue. Getting an m3 alone will satisfy your desire for that "something new" feeling.

I would go with MR. BTW, I was at the LA Auto Show this weekend, where BMW had a Melbourne Red M3 coupe, Audi had a red S5 coupe and cabriolet, Porsche had a red Cayman, and Cadillac went all red for their entire CTS-V lineup. I thought the Audi red was the nicest -- just slightly darker and more menacing than BMW's MR. I'm less wild about Porsche's guards red. Cadillac's red is hideous.
