2 weeks to decide individual color

Ladies and Gents,
I've put in an order for a 2013 E92 M3 with Steve Thomas and am told I'll be getting a March production allocation meaning I have a few weeks before my build has to be locked.

I started out wanting a stripper with no options except the individual color but talked myself into carbon leather trim and competition package. Interior will be black speed cloth and 6MT.

The order is currently approved for Santorini Blue which has been a long time favorite of mine, the intent is to paint the ZCP wheels black and get all the 'black chrome' grills tailpipes etc...

I spend at least 2 hours tossing in bed every night pondering if I made the right choice. I want something unique and flashy...but not too flashy...that will stand the test of time, i.e. in 10 years people won't see it as a 'fad' color.

So I posted a poll of my top 5 choices and am wondering what everyone thinks. Feel free to post more options.
Thanks,
-Curt

In order of appearance:
Santorini Blue
Hellrot
Speed Yellow
Frozen MCB
Frozen Brilliant White
I know what users PrimoM3, Bob Santorini, Ringmeister and Ilis will say...

Hellrot and Speed cloth would be a great combo.

Thanks for your (continued) patients as I change my mind on configuration every 2 days

I've searched all over the country for my M3 over the past 2 years and have yet to find a more up-front professional and reasonable online sales team than Francesca, Ryan and Kirsten at Steve Thomas.

Wow a lot of support for Hellrot, but wont it look too much like Melbourne? I'd have to see them side by side because I feel the 'individualness' will be lost. that being said, to play devils advocate, Santorini will definitely be heralded as 'Smurf' blue by my co-workers. And lets be honest I probably don't have the discipline to properly maintain the Frozen colors. I like Speed yellow, but not sure if I like yellow cars...

I love the frozen colors, especially the white.. but I agree with you, maintenance will be a bish.

Personally.. Santorini Blue looks fantastic. It will be smurf, but the whole point is to have something different right!

With a few cosmetic changes and that car will be mean!

I always thought an M3 in Stratus Metallic would be badass. I saw a Z8 in that color at the Performance Center years ago. It's always been one of my favorites.

I like frozen blue very much but when I mentioned it, many of my car guys friend couldn't agree with me. Plus they said to me that frozen color will soon lose its popularity and then it will look weird on the streets. However, I strongly disagree with them.

I think the red and yellow color are more for Ferrari/Lammbo/Porsche, they meant to show off a bit. That's just my opinion.

I would go for red as well but frozen blue doesn't look that bad.

Out of those choices, Hellrot (Imola Red would be great too) or Frozen MCB.

However, if it's at all possible, the color I'd really really want if I went Individual would be Techno Violet. It's unique, but definitely not too flashy. Please for the love of all that is holy pick TV. Pretty pretty please

That is EXACTLY the build I just researched last week with Francesca at Steve Thomas. Santorini / Cloth / ZCP / carbon leather / gloss-black everything else including wheels. Plus perhaps some extra Individual blue stitching.

The $5,000 deposit is a drag though.
