Legendary? I don't know...but looks like it could be slightly brighter.

Have you decided between sunroof or CF? I know you were wanting both. If CF, will that affect/influence your color choice?
White indeed sets off against the CF brilliantly. As much as I generally hate white cars this look pretty darn good. I am shocked also by how unpoular grey is in the polls, probably the most common colors for BMWs and MBs here in So. Cal. (probably in US as well).

I'm pretty torn about the CF roof. The purist in me says go with the performance option but since I'd never sacrifice performance enough to go with a vert I'd love to have the sunroof. I think I am leaning toward CF roof. Thanks for asking and keeping this sub-conversation going. How about you going to paint your CF roof up?

No, I will leave it as it comes but it does make the exterior color choice a little more interesting if you consider the contrast of the roof. I'm definitely going to wait a year or two in and see what else becomes available, perhaps individual even. I really want a bright red, brighter than Melbourne, for more contrast with the top (plus I just love the color). I hate to compromise on something that is so important to me such as color, so I will wait patiently. Plus I want to see every option that I would consider in person so I can make the right choice there. Heck, I wouldn't even mind a drive in the 'other' gearbox just to make sure.

Black is the best. Although white comes in second.

From my observations white has not been popular at all on M3s thus far.
I don't know how much that has to do with it. There were quite a few pics and vids in red and it isn't getting much love. I'm a Sparkling graphite fan myself, but the car just looks awesome in white. Especially with the CF roof. Has nothing to do with marketing.

Hey guys, I wonder why the BMW won't provide the Phonix Yellow for the next E92 M3? It is an awesome color! Laguna Blue is nice too!!

I dont think yellow is a disguting color I mean if BMW came out with this color how many of you would jump on it? lets have a count ;-) I know I would especially if it was only a limited number of this color too!

I think..... White is the new Silver. Getting more popular on many cars.

I still love Silverstone, and if BMW offers some sort of Silverstone leather interior that contrasts with black seatbacks, black carpeting, and black door panels, that will seal the deal for me!

matching top looks amazing. odd though.. it has no sunroof... but has the black carbon fiber shark fin. i wonder if this means that you can get a normal roof without a sun/moon roof.

Scott said, that's a blue film disguising the CF roof. You can also see that the roof is not exactly the same colour like the rest of the car.
