AW , Mone Carlo Blue, Or Space Grey For 2011 M3??

I am having a hard time choosing the right color for my new M3. What are your choices for the best color on a 2011 M3?

AW, duh. It's free and you don't have to pressure BMWNA, either.

i love AW, but white has always been standard, though beautiful it doesn't stand out as much as the others. Am i wrong? Is white a whole different white on the M3? I am playing my own devils advocate here lol, bare with me

Monte Carlo Blue is definitely more unique and stands out a lot compare but you will never go wrong with AW for sure. I'd take MCB if it's a weekend car and AW for DD.

If it's an E90, space grey

If it's an E92, white is you want to be safe, blue if you want to be different.

MCB is girly. AW for weekend car, AW for DD.

If you are prepared to spend the $5000 for Monte Carlo, I would not necessarily limit yourself to just those three choices. You can get pretty much any color you want.

Hmm I love all 3 colors so it's a hard one to decide. AW is really common so if you want to be one of the majority. Space grey looks great at night and its easy to maintain. Monte carlo blue looks great but I suspect that if it becomes available as a standard color, it will become very common much like AW is at the moment.

You probably should think about if your getting a CF or moonroof. In my opinion if you get the CF you should get AW since the CF will stand out very nicely with that kind of contrast. Anyone else agree with that?

I LOVE MCB! And if you are able to get it in the US, I definitely want to know and see some pics. However, those that said it's a bit much for a DD do make a good point. I've never thought about it like that. I'd definitely still rock it though, DD or not.

I really like my AW but it's my second white E90 and I'm getting a bit bored with it. Good safe choice, though. It's popular for a reason. I'm not a huge Space Grey fan but I do think it looks awesome on the E90.

I asked for MC Blue on a 2011 M3 coupe w/ZCP and BMW's answer:

"Monte Carlo Blue is not available as a special order."

If anyone is able to get MC blue on an M3 in the USA, please post...

That's a surprise given that it can be ordered on Individual elsewhere. I suppose US doens't get all Individual paint options, but I am surprised if this one is excluded long-term.

seems like my AW with the CF roof is winning. I know AW with red interior may be common too, but common on the forums, or in a bmw crowded city. Where i live you hardly see M3's so either way imo it should stand out on its own.

I can't imagine anyone wanting any other color than Monte Carlo Blue, but that's just me.


Best regards,
