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...

If I got an e46 M3 I would look hard for one in that color w/ silver wheels. I love it.

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