Saw my first e90 M3 Sedan in CT - interlagos blue

Finally got to see the e90 m3 in person today. It looks better in person, but i still think the e92 looks a lot better. I think the e90 is going to be the sleeper of the M cars. I would have never noticed it if it wasnt for the le mans blue paint.

It would have been Interlagos Blue.

Nice find, and nice job in baiting us for the "this thread is worthless without pics" post. Looks like at least one of the blue M3s made it over on the ferry intact.

Yea this car may have all the M bits, but the overall style of the e90 just doesnt look that aggresive compared to the e92. I just think that the e92, e60, and Z - M cars will turn a lot more heads. Like i said earlier, I would have never noticed it if it wasnt for the paint...
