Which colour for the M3?

Based on the new information I thought a new poll would make sense.
So tell us which colour you'd like to get.

I prefer retro blue at the moment although I don't know the exact shade

Best regards, south

Nice combo.
I do hope for a blue leather interior; otherwise I'll pick silverstone II.

That would be my choice too. Thankfully according to the rumors the promotional shots of the M3 concept is being shot with an AW M3 so we'll get to see it first

Laguna Seca Blue and if they don't have it, I'll get mine done by Individual. That colour with the matching seats rocks. Hard.

Crimson Red hopefully (non-M color, special order), if not I will consider the muddy red (Imola). They really need a new bright red for the ///M palette. Hopefully this happens sometime during the new model life cycle.

individual program... a no go

unfortunately BMWNA doesn't offer the individual program for any car other than the 7 series right now. they discontinued the program in the US quite some time ago, citing that the unique combinations dont hold value well and drive down bmw's depreciation stats here, particularly for leases. this is all information straight from the horses mouth that i gleaned in a 3 month fight i had with BMWNA on this issue when i was considering buying the m6. ultimately its the reason i didn't purchase that car.

the short of it is that the only way US residents can get individualized colors on non-7-series models would be through BMW's diplomatic program, their military program, or their corporate order program, which is an overwhelming minority of people.

its another unacceptable example of the disparity of BMW quality here in the states compared to in the EU. rumor has it that bmw might be reintroducing the individual program in NA for its full line of cars down the line soon, and that the 7-only individual program is bmw's attempt to slowly roll the program back out stateside. but for the time being we don't have it, and we definitely won't have it for the m3's first year of production.

Go look at the car shows

Bright colors (except for VW and Lambo) are all but gone.....

I think the M3 will be released in white.

I think the best white is something like the Integra Type R's Championship White....
