I'm on my second M3. The first was Sparkling Graphite Metallic and the new one is LMB. SGM is darker than SG.

I've had more comments from people on the LMB in two weeks than I had with the SGM over 3.5 years. Granted, I did convert from E90 to E92, but I think it is the color.

The thing just pops in the sunlight. I'm mid way through on blacking it out. Should look mean when it is done (satin black powder coated ZCP's, black ceramic coated Active Autowerke Sig exhaust, mat grills and side strakes, etc.)

Unfortunately, LMB looks to be high maintenance. While the blue pops, so do fingerprints. Looks like it will be more susceptible to swirl marks too.

As for the interior, black extended with carbon leather fiber all the way. The interior in the old M still looked pristine after 3.5 years.
