Color is a personal choice... Search through at the M3 Photo gallery forum to see what appeals to you the most... I would also talk to some of the regular agents/dealers that browse these forums to see whether all allocations are dried up and whether you can no longer order an individual M.

I was set on getting my m in laguna seca blue. but between the red and le mans blue I cannot make up my mind which looks better.

I really feel like the dealer does not even know for sure because they have gone back and forth with the special colors.

I have a mineral white and would like a frozen grey. One thing to think about is how your car color will stand out vs the other bmw's on the road.

I personally loved my old Lemans Blue 335I, but had to step up to a 2013 Frozen Grey M3, and I like this color even better!

Good luck.

You could always get it wrapped like I did. I wanted speed yellow. But at least I don't have to live with it permanently:

I went with MR and love it! The contrast between the CF roof and the red is great.

thats the one thing leaning me to the red. because i will be putting carbon parts and they stand out so much better on a brighter color car.

Don't be so generous with your punctuation.

Both colors will stand out as they are less popular than most standard colors. If resale is a factor you should avoid Red, otherwise I think carbon fiber will "pop" more with MR.

I would still call around and see if you can get the color you want.
