My vote goes to santorini blue. If i were to get a yellow M i would go with dakar. Speed yellow is too bright for my taste. Thats just my 2 cents.

Should have made a poll. If I had to choose between the two, Santorini for sure, not a fan of any yellow on E9X M3's

Could I morph the Speed Yellow E93 into an E92?

Something in the Santorini on E92s that doesnt work for me.

Oh, my bad, Felix, thought this was for you.

Of the two you posted, I'd go with the Santorini. It'd look awesome with all black trim, perf cf exterior pieces, and black 359s like someone else said.

I'd say both colors are pretty rare, perhaps with the Speed Yellow being slightly more rare.

Don't think your brother in law can go wrong here, certainly not with you overseeing the purchasing and modding!

Speed yellow seems more rare at this point. The bigger issue is a vert or a coupe. Shouldn't that be the deciding factor.

Yellow hands down unless of course you are a Smurf. Sorry but that Blue is the same blue on a Scion.

Seems like the color choice is the biggest question.
