kudos to you for being original. I don't think the color suits the car at all...but that's just my opinion. As long as you're happy!

Thanks for the replys, glad it's not universally hated. Lol. I wanted to do something I knew no one else would have.
And yes, I live in Manoa

Another pic of how dark the car looks in some light

This color combination confuses me. I think you've been able to get so far out there with your choice that I literally have nothing to say or think about it. I certainly don't like it but I don't hate it the way I hate E90s. Do you truly think it looks better than the traditional colors offered? Or do you only award individuality points?

I think a darker, classic color is really not going 'way out there'.
Wanted something unique and not a skittles colored car, like most of the other Individual M3's are.

I like it.

Very similar to special edition e36 M3 GT from 1995... (which was actually BRG)

Saw it at the dealer before you picked her up. I like it a lot as it reminds me of my old e46 M3, which was oxford green metallic 2 over cinnamon.


Btw you should bring her out to a meet sometime. Would love to all over her again.

Great colour! If it were me, I'd matte black the wheels though.

Either way, big thumbs up to those that fork-out for individual colours, it's not about what the group thinks, its about what the individual thinks.
