What color would you like your M3 to be?

My favorite color is white but my other option would be space grey.

I would take Space Grey but I want the Sedan. Oh well. Silverstone II it is! Jarez and Alpine though have changed my mind on black and white, respectively. Two colors I thought I'd never want for a car.

looks good, but too light for graphite, space gray I would guess.

Alpine White, 19" 's, Palladium Silver extended leather with carbon leather trim

I love white on the new M3, especially with the CFRP roof!

I prefer Spacegrey. White color is nice but it doesn't look aggresive. White is for women and ambulances.

I've been rather disappointed in the exterior and interior color choices so far. I guess my first answer would be "None of the above". But if really had to choose it would be IL Blue/Black interior or Space Gray/???. I wish there was a saddle brown type interior. Or Caramel from the older M5.

Laguna Seca Blue was a favorite, and Estoril Blue, breathtaking...always thought Cinnamon was a nice color too.

I just wish they offered a burnt orange color. I really like Atomic Orange on the Corvette Z06.

They don't offer an orange for the exact same reason that we have yet to see someone with a Melbourne Red M3. It just won't sell well. As was said before, most poeple interested in their car want luxury and the performance that comes with it, but they also want to be a bit understated and not stand out like a sore thumb.

Coincidence that I'll be ordering Melbourne Red? I think not.
