I love that Yellow...reminds me of my Speed Yellow 997S



Excellent color..although I'll tell you, Yellow is a love or hate color.

I love the color. I don't know if I'd get it on a sedan though (except if I ever get a smaller sports car)

It won't look quite as taxicab once it get's it's company and track graphics. This will be a DD for my real estate sales and a NASA time trial car for myself and Derek. I do agree the coupe with the cf roof would be better but I needed the 4-door for the DD role.

Picking it up by trailer in Little Rock on the 9th and breaking it in properly on track with NASA Rocky Mountain region at Hallett the 11th-12th.

+1[/QUOTE] +1 more. I don't feel Dakar yellow. But this Atacama yellow is awesome. Even better than Phoenix yellow for e46 M3. Now its one of my favorite colors for e90/92. Well, with so few choices among stock e90/92 for sharp colors: white (alpine or mineral) & crimson red. This Atacama Yellow is definitely unique. Making this individual color with black interior will be worth it.

I personally like the Dakar better! But no doubt this is still very very beautiful!

Heres my take..I think the Porsche fits this rich, yellow color better...as crazy as it sounds the 370z also fits it better too..I think this even the M3 in this color would look better if it was a Coupe!

But for some reason the M3 Sedan doesn't fit well with such a rich color...Sedan would be better in Dakar imo

At the end of the day its a personal thing so everyone has different preference..the car is still and I would be caught staring at it if I ever saw it on the road

Looks great. I've seen that color on a 2011 Z4 and it's pretty unique.
