Help me decide what color to repaint my M3!

I am going to have my entire E92 M3 repainted in May.

Instead of just doing the stock color (Jerez), i wanted to get something special/spicy. The car isn't collectable and already needs some paint work, so I'm not going to shed any tears if the strut towers stay black.

I'm trying to crowdsource Ideas for what i should do. Originally was thinking to go for BMW's Santorini Blue or Porsche Signal Green.

Please, if anyone has any ideas on what colors i should go for, post them up!

Are you looking for strictly BMW color codes? I have thought about doing mine in Hellrot Red.. but sometimes think about going crazy and doing it in Toyota orange inferno..

Added a pic of a hellrot red one.. striking!!

British Racing Green and get your wheels done in Bronze. That was my grand plan but sadly I don't know if I'll be able to keep the car much longer.

Techno Violet or San Marino would be my ideal choices if I were to ever do a respray. But the white strut towers would bother me to no end...

You should paint it the color you want not the color that people you don’t know want.

What about a high gloss - crimson, merlot or bloody purple? Evil and it would show the E92 lines well. Gunmetal, dark blue or black rims?

I have some advice. I've painted an entire car to a new color. If you're going to do it, do it right otherwise just wrap it. Black strut towers on a blue car is a no-no.

Here is my build thread:
