Got the Blues.....Monte Carlo Blue M3 pics

Picked up my Monte Carlo Blue Coupe yesterday at the PCD
( thanks Ryan at Steve Thomas BMW and Golfferr for making the connections).

Mr_ Yogi, another forum member was also picking up his Le Man's Blue the same day so here are comparison shots of the two light blues next to each other.

The Monte Carlo Blue makes the Le Man look dark ( just like the Leguna Seca Blue makes the Monte Carlo look dark in the SoCal photo series).

enjoy.
Arter's MCB to left, Mr Yogi's Le Mans to the right. Both great colors



Tail to tail



The classic butt shot ( Hey, my car's a lot smaller than his, I got robbed)



MCB by itself ( a Dark Sea Blue E91 for comparison)

Beautiful cars!

Great comparison. It would be cool to see those + Interlagos and Leguna all in one shot.

I thought about it and chickened out.
I went with the bamboo and Mr Yogi did the light gray which is very nice.

Mark's M had the rust brown individual interior ( $4000?) which I also did like, but was too cheap to get.

So how much extra did you have to pay for the individual color, by the way, its worth every penny.

Invoice on individual color is $4550, about the cost of adding the Performance Exhaust.
