Petition to re-introduce Laguna Seca Blue to the BMW colors

Hello all,

I have formally requested the re-introduction of Laguna Seca Blue as a color on the '09 year line-up for a select number of vehicles (of BMW's choice), as well as the E92 M3. It is without a doubt one of the nicest colors previously available for the E46 M3, and even if one did not particularly have the taste for it, there was no denying its presence. It has ever since become a rarity, after its discontinuation in 2004-2005. Here are some pictures to illustrate the color:


Taken from 'http://www.heitz.us/My_Car.htm'.

For this cause, I have created a petition addressed to Frank-Peter Arndt, the head of production @ BMW Group. There is no way this will ever make any impact if people do not sign. With enough participation, the petition can make a difference. For this, I ask you, the BMW enthusiast, to sign this petition so that you, or others like you, can enjoy this color on their future car. I also ask you to please forward this link to anyone that you may know of that would support this request.

I would really appreciate this from all of you. I do believe that you and I, as loyal BMW owners and/or enthusiasts, can make a difference.

Here is the link: http://www.petitiononline.com/lsbreint/petition.html

I would also request for you to join my Facebook or MySpace groups that I have created for this petition located below:
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gi...4701438&ref=mf
http://groups.myspace.com/lsbreintro
Please invite your FRIENDS!

The petition asks you for a name and an email. The name is publicly displayed, as is evident, but the email is displayed at your discretion and I assure you that I will never know of it. It is just there so that a confirmation can be sent to you after you sign, confirming that you have signed, and not requiring you to click anything.

I don't think this will affect BMWs decision unfortunately.

I agree that I love the color, but sometimes the best colors have to die or else they lose what makes them special. If you saw it too much it would lose some of it's appeal.

+1,000,000. You can 'like' the color all you want, but if you're not going to buy it..it won't matter.

Not to mention that online boards represent a very small portion of BMW customers.

I love that color on the E46 M3 as much as I love it in Alpine White, but I think the color is a bit too dated for newer model BMW's.

^^if that was the case i think your whites, blacks, and grays would be too dated also...i dont think thats the case...it might only feel that way beause they dont have it on the current model so it feels dated back

Doubt they will bring it back for new production cars. Either way, you can get any bmw color you want with the BMW Individual program...

I'm done after this post, man. If you look...EVERY auto maker, regardless of American, European, or Japanese, has ALL of their cars available in white, silver, and black. Not everyone has Laguna Seca Blue.
