I will change my m3 color from A.W to yellow after 1 month

yes I will change my M3 color from Alpine White to Yellow. It's very simple, do you agree or not. Or if there is another color in your mind tell me plz.

Never been a huge fan of Yellow...

Cant you order some type of yellow (maybe Dakar) through BMW individual?

Don't repaint your brand new car. Not good.

Excellent idea. I would continue the pattern thusly:

After two months - orange
After three months - chartreuse
After four months - bright green
After five months - peachy
After six months - gold with matching gold rims

I think it would also be cool to key and graffiti the car each month, right before the paint goes on. I mean when else will you get to go psycho on your own ride like that?

Do what makes you happy dude. Don't spend your time trying to please others. Just make sure you realize what your getting yourself into. It's a very big job that's gonna cost you about 8k to get it done right. Remember, they will have to drop your engine, strip parts off your car, ect......... Good luck & happy modding. Just my $0.02, If I had the balls to do something like this it would be laguna seca (smurf) blue all the way

You have to consider that a re-painted car won't look good at the moment you sell it (eventually).... And that's just because of the fact of the re-paint. Now, if you don't care about that, you can paint the car the car any color you like.... You shouldn't be asking in the forum because it's a very personal thing.

Agreed, especially for a Miami driver. I went on a mission trying to get the M in individual Laguna blue but, 2 things arose. 1. they don't make it anymore. 2. no individual program for the greatest country in the world (don't care what anybody else says)
