Wasn't LSB the first color offered on the E46 M3? Since that day, it's really been a love it or hate it color. Personally, I've always thought of it as Light Smurf Blue, BUT, there are a lot of people who absolutely love it. On the E46, at least, throwing on some dark tints and dark wheels make it look a bit better, at least for me. Congrats to the owner, though. Not my taste in color, but having a paint-to-sample car is pretty cool.

I have a feeling this might not look good on the E92, and the cell phone pic is not helping, but it did look good on the E46 with some contrast from tint & wheels as you are saying. I'm still waiting for better pics though for the E92, and I bet tint and wheels would help in this case as well. But, yes, congrats to the owner. I don't mean to spoil the party or anything.

oh wow, we once had a Phoenix Yellow/Kiwi E46 M3 come through our dealership, it actually looked pretty interesting, but i think dakar yellow is too pale, ive never liked it. Phoenix yellow looks really really good on the E92! Now if only they would paint it Techno Violet.....

Phoenix Yellow would be a great one off color for the E92.

Hopefully we'll see the LSB E92 at BMFeast next year. H2, you're going to have to make the drive.

I'll be there. I actually drove up there this year in my Mountaineer (haha) to take a look at the cars.

Where is the car now, and what is the projected delivery date?
Yes the car is done. It's been in South Carolina since Oct 30. I pick it up at the PDC on Nov 21. I'll post pics a few days later in this thread.
