It is Le Mans. It was posted in the IB thread erroneously, IIRC, and I think it was by someone other than the owner. If you look at post history of the owner, you'll see the original thread where he explains it is LMB on Fox Red (probably the only E93 of that spec in existence, I'd say).

Thanks. Interesting combo but it seems too much with the FR against LMB but you never can tell by looking at a picture. I will be putting in my order next month but I just can't seem to make my mind up on color. I tend to like, more understated colors but still aggressive. White is beautiful but too many of them out there, silver is too bland for me (but still looks good), LMB seems not too out there but I haven't seen it outside yet. I may end up with standard Jerez Black and RF.

A few shots of black/LMB E93, with 18s, in varying light conditions. This is a USA car, but with European plates for European delivery.

Very nice kpao. The silver 18s are definitely growing on me.

Kpao, That a beautiful E93. IMO it would look so much better without the chrome trim.

^ When did they start substituting "matte black" for the "gloss black" that used to be standard around the side mirrors? Guess I've been sleepin'

P.S. I much prefer the 18's in gunmetal as it was from the get go.

Have to admit that I really agonized over the color choice on my E93 M3. Tried hard to warm up to Melbourne Red and Silverstone without success. I settled on Le Mans Blue with the Bamboo Beige interior, only having seen the exterior color on a 328 M-Sport sedan, and never saw the interior prior to pickup day in Munich. I'm really happy with it, and noticed late in the game that the Antracite trim had a subtle tan fleck in it that picks up the seat color nicely. Le Mans is a rich blue with no weird highlight or shadow tones lurking in there, and "reads" as blue from farther away than six feet - something that couldn't be said about some previous too-dark blues. It's a great color that I've been waiting for BMW to produce. My only reservation is that it tends to "swallow" the front-end treatment in anything but bright sunlight.

Pics below:
In front of Mona Lisa's house in the sunshine of Chianti. Can you make out the muddy cat-paw prints across the hood?

It's Tuscany and it's not raining. Of course the top is down.

Hundred-year-old villa in Italy's Piemonte region sets off the lines of the BMW wonderfully.
