I can dig it. Very sexy color. Kind of out there and random color but done nicely with the black wheels. The eccentric color, IMO, reminds me that of Laguna Seca for the e46 M3s. That one of shade thats just a tad different but no matter what, when you look at it, the colors & vehicle are just sexual

Hate it.

Well, I don't actually hate it, since it's not like it's offending me to look at, but I just don't think it looks good.

-Anybody can respray a car in a crazy color, so I can't really give it much admiration just for that. It might be a different story in the rest of the US, but cars repainted in bright and flashy colors is very common in some parts of Oakland. Also, while the color is crazy, the overall shape of the car is not, and because of this, not very fitting. The car still has the relatively tall and bubbly greenhouse of a standard 1 series, and the overall very mundane, car-like shape. Contrast this to a lamborghini murcielago, with it's incredibly low roofline and wedge like shape, and then you have a crazy car with a matching crazy paint job.

-The contrasting black wheels and roof look pretty good with the lighter color.

-The tow hook arrow looks stupid on what is obviously a street/show car, and far from a professional level track car.

-Not a fan of the rear lip spoiler though, as to me, the design is very Mercedes-Benz styling.

-Love the pictures done in the room with the skylights and the large barrel.

I think it's an incredibly interesting car, and while I would have gone a different route in terms of color (a Matte Alpine White with some exposed Carbon Fiber), the style is extremely well executed. I would drive this proudly.

I love the lime color! IMO it looks so much better than the reddish-orangeish-marroon 1M color; never did like that color. Chevrolet did the same thing with the 50th Anniversary Corvette by having it be only in that ugly marroon and thus making it not look as cool as it could've been.
