I'd like to see an up close photo of the paint just for reference. Definitely one of those colors you have to see in person.

Looks kinda like a a shamrock shake to me... which isn't bad.

Honestly, I'm shocked that everyone loves this... I think it's horrible... by far the worst color I've ever seen on the M3, but to each their own. Enjoy it man!

I saw this at BMW Portland showroom back in 2013. I like the color - definitely unique and eye catching. I'm curious how the dealer ended up with this car in the showroom. Possibly an Individual customer order that was cancelled during production? Anyway, the car looks even better in your pics that it looked in the showroom.

Gloss black wheels would make a really nice contrast!

distaste for this color seems to be in the minority in this thread but i'm afraid i'm that minority.

to me, the color emasculates your car greatly. there are certain colors that tweak the overall character of a car and this is one of them.

just as really dark colors (jet black, black sapphire, etc) remove the nuances of shape and form, i believe light, creamy pastel colors almost shave off the outside cladding and make the car look flat.

dark colors, however, create a veneer of mystique, which makes you want to keep looking to see if there is more than meets the eye (underexposed).
bright colors, on the other hand, erase the vehicle's countenance because one's eyes simply can't discern it - all detail is lost (overexposed).

this is not to comment about the color being "pretty" or "ugly" but, rather, how it affects the car as a whole. if you compare a regular 328i to an M3, you'll start noticing what makes them so different in appearance.

the side skirts are more dominant, the protruding hood creates the feeling of a beast trying to escape from underneath and various creases throughout the body are aggressively pronounced to articulate they were chiseled by the wind [tunnel] itself. all of that is gone when a color like this mint green is applied.

all of that being said, we should all get what we love, though. so kudos on not giving in to doubts and going for it!

Who cares what others think, it only matters if you like it. You're the one that sees it and lives with it every day, so other than a wife/kids, I learned long ago that others' opinions of trivial stuff like this are irrelevant. Material things are generally about your enjoyment, not others. And if u are the type of person that likes to get noticed, having a unique color will definitely accomplish that lol.

However this is a forum, and opinions are encouraged (most of the time)

Saw this car online when I was looking and loved it. Being on the east coast made the trade in / new car shipping just to complex and expensive, otherwise done. Best of luck with it.

This color reminds me of my '97 Audi A4 in Aquarell Metallic. Nice and unique.

For the record, his M3 was supposed to be Evergreen (Someone posted an Evergreen M Coupe) originally but BMW gave us the no go and they suggested Mint Green.
