I vote Speed Yellow for sure, never was a fan of those matte colors, all looks like wrap to me when I see it. If you are going to spend $5k, get the speed yellow though I admit the techno violet is also super nice. My old old e36 m3 was that color and loved it!
Buying from Steve Thomas so pretty close to invoice. I made up my mind for Santorini, all were great colors but I had to go with my long time favorite.

I want to say congratulations on your Santorini, you made the right choice listening to yourself, that's why it's called Individual. Never seen it in person, but I absolutely love the color based on pics, def Top 5 for me next to Phoenix, Laguna Seca, Techno Violet, and Fiji.

Not sure if your order is sealed, but I would highly recommend adding the navigation if you did not. I purchased a 2011 M3 Coupe Alpine/Fox 6spd last april (now for sale if anyone is looking)… I'm a straight performance kind of guy, my original intent was to purchase as you first intended, bare bones, no options and could have cared less for the navigation, I just wanted to rip the car. I ended up finding my color combo with navigation and just went for it as I got an insanely under priced deal. I can officially say I would never purchase another one without the nav system. The full nav with traffic, ability to plug in your iPod and scroll through your entire music library on screen, plus DVD player is all pretty badass and more than worth it in my opinion. Just my two cents tho ;-)

My Individual order is Phoenix Yellow / Extended Fox Red / Carbon Leather / 6spd Manual

I own an Individual '06 Phoenix M3. I'm one of the few who is obsessed…ahem… passionate about the color. So to all the Phoenix haters out there… save it!
The car has slowly been gaining more and more options, I'm unsure if I could add navigation and stay within my max budget that my wife has set for the car. I'd be dipping into mod money to pay down the nav system and feel that I would be sacrificing my original intent of a work week highway cruiser/weekend track day car.

Wow so thats a Santorini, Laguna Seca, and Phoenix all coming in sequentially...going to be a cool sight if we can get them all together before delivery! Congratulations by the way!
