Your car looks great!
I just picked up this E90 from a dealer (these are their pics)...2 tone palladium/black. Haven't gotten around to taking better pics yet, though. Palladium seems to be a bit darker than silver, but I really am liking the combo.

I like the color so much I got our 135i in the same blue.









Even looks good dirty.

I think this is my favorite color for the E92 M3. Really shows off the lines well and contrasts the CF roof perfectly.
Also its not as common as white or black.

Just couldn't get there because of the odd tones they took on in different lighting. I get that that's what BMW was going for with these colors - uniqueness. But the variations in Melbourne, Silverstone and Interlagos just lost me. I feel like the car in either shade of white looks too hippy - as in overweight. Either of the blacks? I have another black car - and I'm not making that mistake again. And my '08 was Space Gray. Process of elimination leaves Le Mans Blue. I would have preferred to have been really drawn in by Le Mans Blue, but have to tell you that once I saw the color, combined with the Bamboo leather and the Sycamore Anthracite trim, which has a subtle tan fleck which picks up the seat color, I question why I made myself suffer over this choice in the first place. I got LOTS of compliments on it from people who saw it on the street in italy (as in the pic below - me looking smug with my arms folded), and people who saw my ED trip pix. Can't wait to get it back.

Thanks for the nice write up! I feel the exact same way as your write up. I kinda wish LMB was a little darker, or had more dark gray tones in it. But alas, for the sake of something attractive and beautiful on the car, LMB it is.

Here are some photos of my 2013 E92 LMB. Only mods are painted IND reflectors and LUX V4 Angel Eye LED lights. Love this color even more in person than photos. Note these pictures were taken just after detail prep by Barry Theal of presidential details. He and Scott (his right hand man) did a fantastic job. Anything you don't like about how it came out is due to my photography skills and the drizzle that started to come down just as I was taking these pictures. Can't wait to see it in the sun.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

LMB in Monte Carlo

Did a ED at the end of June and drove it down to Monte Carlo and Nice FR. Turned it in for shipping back to the US the same day the last M3 coupe came off the line. Another coupe of weeks before I get her back.
