Bay Area Interlagos Blue owners

Hi all, new member here getting ready to order a '13 E92. I can't decide between interlagos and le mans blue. I've seen le mans in person.

I'm hoping I can meet with an interlagos owner so I can check out your car. Thanks in advance

Hopefully you find one cause I've yet to see a pic that captures it accurately.

Thanks. I saw one at the dealer today, but it was roped up in the middle of their showroom and so they couldn't bring it out into the sun.

Hey, thanks for offering! But I've decided on le mans.

Agree with M3PO. Interlagos Blue looks different in different lighting situations. I don't have an M3 anymore, but it's my favorite color on the M6

Yeah, both the interlagos and le mans are very nice true blues under sunlight, with the IB a little darker. It's in the shade where the IB differs. It has a purplish hue to it, which is nice, but I am looking for a true blue car, and the LM stays blue in shade.
