Carbon black or interlagos blue??

Which color do you prefer on a 2006 m3 competition package?? Carbon black or interlagos blue?? If anyone in the Montgomeryville, PA area has either color, can i see it in person? I want to check out the colors in person, its hard to really get a good idea from pictures online. I am looking to buy an M3 but can't seem to locate any nearby just to check out the difference in the two colors.
Thx everyone,
Eddie

interlagos bro... its a more special. more rare. i think IB was only available on the comp package, 05+, CB has been available forever.


Carbon black looks black, but in direct sunlight it looks dark blue. very cool color.

interlagos blue is a funky blue, almost like the blue on the BMW race cars, but darker.

Two of my favorite colors, but I'd grab Interlagos Blue if it is available.

IB FTW! Here are a few pictures from back-in-the-day of my '05 IB ZCP coupe....






...dropped on TEIN SSP's with EDFC (..and a 5mm H&R spacer up front to clear the suspension)!

My ride was painted carbon black, it was nice but I got tired of the color rather quickly. I repainted the car IB and I love it! People always tell me how amazing the blue is.

see sig for a pic...

I've got carbon, but definitely would've gone w/ interlagos if I was able to find one in my price range (that competition package carries a hell of a premium)
