Looks like Phoenix Yellow...maybe through the Individual program. Doesn't do much for the E92 M3 IMO.

Looks like Phoenix yellow. Personally I like it, not to pretty when it's dirty but under sunlight while clean it looks pretty nice, would much rather have Dakar yellow though.

Nice color, saw many e46 M3s with the same color.

I think its due to the lighting... I think a proffessional photoshoot would bring back the power to color.

dude are you serious? that is clearly Phoenix Yellow on the e92 M3. look at the two pictures you posted - they don't even look the same, and yet we all know they're both PY...the camera/lighting/photo editing makes them look different though. the pic of the e92 M3 was taken with a different camera in different lighting on a different day. its still phoenix yellow.

especially consider all those different pics of fox red we've seen. exposure and camera can make a bigtime difference. some fox red looks bright red, others looks like a subtle brick brown. its PYM...

EDIT: i am looking at the second pic that you posted compared to the OP and they look exactly the same. haha. are you smoking something?

both colors looked fabulous on the e46 M3, but i couldn't stand either of them on the 01-02 M Coupes, or any other BMW for that matter.
