Yeah, I've never been a big fan. I am happy to see that BMW is bringing back Inka Orange. My 3 favorite BMW colors (not in order). Interlagos Blue, Frozen Grey, Inka Orange

That's not quite Dakar yellow, which started on the E36 and is a bit more yellow than it is mustardy. That E46 color is very limited. While some may not like it, as another said, it has a large following and is certainly unique.

I sorta like Phoenix Yellow.... you won't find anything any thing like it. The E46 in Laguna Seca blue is my favorite though...

To restate the above posters, that color is Phoenix Yellow Metallic and the worst color ever on a BMW is Urban Green.
