Question New M3 Colors?

Has anyone heard what colors the new M3 might be offered in? Laguna Seca blue is my favorite color.........so I am hoping there's a chance it will be offered on this version. Any thoughts?

Yeah montego blue would look great on the new M3 but since that's a regular e92 color I doubt they'll use it for the M3 also. Interlagos would be beautiful too!!

Colors

Expect the new M3 to have most it not all of the same colors as the current M5/M6. plus maybe a couple of new ones.

BTW, I wouldn't count on Laguna Seca!

Remember though if you order the car you can always get it in any color BMW makes as long as it is not a BMW individual color.......

So yes, if you want Laguna Seca you can order it that.............

I did not know you could do that. Does it cost extra?

This one sounds cool: Test Mule Black (only available with camouflage and blacked out wheels)

It's fairly easy to guess BMW's color offerings. 1 white (Alpine), 1 red (probably Imola), 1 or 2 shades of blue (Interlagos and a new one), 1 or 2 blacks (a flat and a metallic), 2 shades of silver (a light one and a dark one), and I think there will be a new yellow.

Kimmi it does cost extra, but if you must have a certain color than it's probably worth it. Back in 2002 when I was considering it for my M3 it was about $1,000 USD..........

This was not allowed at the start of the E46 M3 production--I expect it will be the same on the E92.

Friends don't let friends drive LSB. I am only kidding but if you like the color then go for it. It was discontinued a while ago because of the lack of people ordering it. If you have the right BMW Center they can order hte color for yoou at an additional up charge. I had a E46 M3 Coupe in LeMans Blue with black leather and light wood. If you notice..... any special M colors are always named after famous race tracks.

I'm with you on that. Interlagos is amazzing. I loved Imola Red also, it's perfect if you liked to be flashy. I always thought that if you get an M3 you should get one of the colors thats not available for the rest of the 3-series lineup (black, silver, etc..).

Coupe colors here....

Coral Red interior is new. I'm sure the M3 will have some exclusive colors.

I would take LeMans Blue too, probably.

You know, I don't think I've EVER seen an Oxford Green M3.

hymm for some reason the side M grille on that photo seems out of place, too small, Ive seen renditions with it as a total makeover w/c seems fitting for a generational change.

Hopefully this time the M3 Interlagos Blue comes with cruise control.

How would someone delete the ZCP without losing Interlagos though?
