Lime Green 1M Coupe - Love it or Hate it?



The actual color is Irie Green but it looks limey to me. In addition to the custom paint job this BMW 1 M Coupe sports blacked out wheels, 10mm spacers, Bilstein B16 PSS10 coilovers and a titanium exhaust! The owner has more in store for this love or leave it 1M with BMW Performance seats, front carbon fiber splitter and rear carbon fiber diffuser.

Love the photoshoot and the uniqueness of it. I would have gone a different route but to each their own.

I would've done a wrap job instead but looks nice either way.

What? Body Kit? There is no body kit on that. It is a 1M.

I own an E30 M3, I get chapped all the time with those thinking it is a body kit. Just as insight, BMW M cars don't always have the same body panels as the regular series.....got it?

seems like BMW is trying to make the 1M a "classic" by using this color... similar to the dakar M3's.

Before I opened the thread: hated it
After I opened the thread: loved it

It's one of those colors that only really works on aggressive looking cars. It works here.
