I believe someone called this Speed Yellow, but it looks mighty close to Atacama:

This may finally be the color that might make me spring for the Individual $5000 paint. Fire Orange is a good one too. Both with Black ZCP wheels.

if your dad has it on order with BMW, that would probably mean it exists..

"Speed yellow" is a porsche color, if I'm not mistaken, but that does appear similar to atacama. Somebody may have beaten me to it! Does look good!

joel (dad)

No, I did not go for individual interior, you have to run out of money somewhere. Bamboo beige non-extended leather E90 with ZCP, DCT, etc.

Yeah, I know. But someone posted that yellow E92 on this forum last year and specifically called it Speed Yellow, and others chimed in about how odd it is that BMW and Porsche would share the same name for the same color. Looks good either way.

Is that Atacama Yellow on that Individual M3???

If so, looks incredible. I've always liked Dakar but that yellow is breathtaking.

No, I did not go for individual interior, you have to run out of money somewhere. Bamboo beige non-extended leather E90 with ZCP, DCT, etc.

Wow...Atacama on Bamboo? Hmmm... Such a flashy exterior with a more "classy" look interior color? Not to mention they seem to entirely clash.

I would do black, much safer, classic sporty look. But hey, that's just me...
