Color of dealer demo cars

Well with lack of anything official, lets have fun with another poll. As most of you know most North American dealers got one demo E46 M3 car at about the same time and they were all the same color, Laguna Seca Blue. So if (likely, IMO) BMW NA does the same thing with E90, what color will these cars be?

BTW, I know the color options I listed are not "official" BMW naming but we still do not even know what will be offered so I just winged it.

I'm guessing red or purple per the other two colors on the ///M badge.

Sure purple. E36 M3 came in a nice metallic purple (again do not know the official color name). Also the LSB was a big gamble on BMWs part that you could say worked out. It certainly is not my favorite car color but doesn't it make sense to use another color from the /// logo?

Anyways, my vote goes to silver considering what I know.

My favorite color on the E46 M3 is Imola Red.... but I don't think that will look right on the E92.

I'll go with silver too.... think the dealers will get demo cars? That would be cool.

Maybe interlagos or a new blue... would love it if they brought back Estoril!

I think it's going to be a new color that we haven't seen before. I also think it will be a shade of Blue. The bulk of the press photos for the E46 M3, E46 M3 ZCP, E60 M5 have all been shades of blue. I think we'll see that trend continue.

I imagine that it will be an //M exclusive color - like LSB was.
