Why couldn't you have had this car Monday when I was buying the Alpine car!! Looks like an almost perfect match to my 74 911.

Looks like it is loaded up with all of the BMW Performance goodies also: Steering Wheel, Grilles, Splitters. Hopefully this isn't listed for $84,999

I just saw a Santorini blue M6 yesterday here in California, the color looked very different from your picture. It was darker, this M3 almost looks like LSB.

Also, depending on the sun and lighting, Santorini and Laguna Seca Blue look pretty similar, no?

Yeah our lighting sucks, Santorini is darker than LSB, hard to tell in the photo though.
