That's a sweet color on the E90! 1 of 1 individual makes it even better.

I seem to alternate between silver/gray or blue cars only. I guess that means there is a good chance my next car will be silver.

I bought my Jerez Black and at the time I thought it was because it was a great combination or mean/classy/cool (especially having ditched the "chrome" window trims).

In hindsight I realize it was because I am an idiot who is compelled to wash my car every few days and is forever stressing about scratches and blemishes.

The LRPE was a love at first sight. It took me 5 years to be able to afford one but here it is.
The wife always wanted a yellow 911...

Barbera red. Individual color. Original owner ordered Moonstone metallic and got this. He gave it back after BMW made his in the correct color.

Naw the inept dealer having no clue how to price the car influenced the pricing of the car lol.

I will say that I will never ever get a black/dark car again...too easy to look dirty even when it is not; water spots are a bitch. Will stick with white light colors from here on out.

Yep, me too. Color is secondary to the quality, maintenance and the overall look of the car.

I look out the window and as far as the eye can see there are black, white, gray, and silver cars. I think the m3 deserves a more special color and I prefer blue. I would have accepted LeMans blue, but preferred Interlagos because it's a little bit funky with it looking purple in some lighting, making it unique amongst other blue cars.

This, exactly. IB and LMB were the only options I considered for the same reason, which narrowed my nationwide search down by quite a bit. The colors are so similar that I never understood why BMW offered them both concurrently. I had a slight preference toward IB but the only one I could find at the time had red interior, which I thought clashed with blue and looked like Superman colors. I love how my LMB E92 stands out in a sea of regular cars without being quite as 'loud' as Melbourne Red (which also looks great). It's the perfect mix of classy and a little flashy IMO.

Much like the other owners of Le Mans Blue, I wanted something different that would stand out. Le Mans blue was the only option in my mind with the metallic flake in the blue. It gets attention wherever I go, especially paired with the gloss black wheels and trim. Plus, my wife who graduated from the University of Florida says it reminds her of Gator blue and was a keeper in her mind. Can't go wrong when momma loves the car too.

Was mainly looking for fox red on space grey to match my 335 combo but couldn't find one! Then settled on alpine white with fox red interior

The market left me with very few choices as i only wanted a convertible with a 6mt. Ended up with alpine white and all black interior. The black interior is really nice in the 100 degree and 100% weather in Florida. I've never used the heated seats and I'm not even sure that they work.

I've always liked a Carbon Black on the e46 M3. So getting the Jerez Black on my M just made it an easy choice for me.

I swore Iíd never own a black car but when I went looking most of the ones I drove had issues or were in shit condition. Very few car color ones for sale too. Then I found mine and went back on my word. Loved the look, hated how it got dirty and scratched so easily, so a full wet sand and a lifetime ceramic later sheís gorgeous for life.

Agree that CB is a great color. I am not a fan of black cars for the usual reasons the others have stated, but when a few years ago I saw a shiny E39 M5 with 20k miles on it in Carbon Black I couldnít pass on it. I didnít drive it much, so I sold it last year but have regretted it for a while now.

I helped talk my friends father into buying my car new. Color wasn't a big deal given that I knew the car it's whole life.

It just so happens to be alpine white on fox red. Which was a combo I wanted badly back when I had an e46 m3.
