YM blue is perfect for a 57 T-Bird. Any BMW? Not so much.

The f80 styling doesn't flow at all compared to the e92. It has evo 10 like styling IMO
Both mechanically and visually, BMW has erased much of the emotional appeal of the ///M cars with this generation. It's simply a "commodity" performance car. Still a good value, but no longer compelling otherwise.

That Santurini makes the Yas Marina look like the car has been out in the sun for too long.

I will say that black rims look good on the YMB F8X, but those gold rims on the E9X look like absolute shit. Sorry.

I'd love to see that F80 with the same mods as your beautiful E92. Although a generation apart, it's tough to compare a modified car to a bone stock one.

Great looking e92m no doubt. I know the original intent of the thread was YMB vs SB, but so many comments are on the body. For that the right comparison is the e90m. I'd say the 90 and 80 are equally choppy compared to a 92.

You guys are drugged out. YMB is not even close to the colour of the handicapped parking colour.

YMB does not photograph well but it kicks ass in person. This will be my colour.

Also, the body of the F80 is light years ahead in styling from the E92. I may be in the minority but I would take a YMB F80 any day over Santorini E92. it really is a very special colour and looks bad ass with the black wheels.

My opinion.

Santorini Blue has a "richer" blue color, YMB feels like the color fades when in strong sunlight

Santorini Blue I think is more natural. Yas Marina looks very artificial. Somehow both colors seek our attention.

The new YMB F80 blows that e92 away in looks and color. Those gold wheels on the e92 have Got.To. Go. Horrible, looks like an old Toyota corolla peanut's wheels.

Yea.. You can't compare a coupe to a sedan not a fair comparison !!

Lot of good points here, but this just about sums it up for me:

Who knows though, once they start modding the new platform they might just grow on me.

Colorwise "Yasmin" Blue is just not cutting it for me. Santorini, Interlagos, Monte Carlo and Le Mans would all do this car justice - but than again they would do just about any car justice...

E92 bulge is where it's at. Is it me or do y'all also dislike the hood line in front that goes straight across? They made that line much shorter on the E92; a step backwards by stylists. It looks awful on the F80.
