How rare is Laguna Seca blue interior?

I've been looking at this 02 m3 with laguna seca blue interior.
If it had just any other black interior I would have just pass but darn it... this blue interior is just so nice and rare and just can not stop looking at it.
Damn it. want it so much. even has proper tranny and may pull trigger without telling my wife. lol
This must be one of rarest e46 interior color after all.

That color is pretty sick. I don't think I've seen one posted before, but I haven't been around that long.

If it didn't have this interior why wouldn't you buy it? Bad maintenance?

It's very rare.

However, IMO, it only really works on like two colors. And steel grey metallic is not one of them.

I'd rather have red interior for that M3.

no, nothing like that. one owner, local car, have all the maint records, only 134000km, about 90000miles, one accident but only fender bender, repair was around $2000.

Just that I'm on very tight budget and really don't need another car.
But, may convince my wife saying this car WILL NOT DEPRECIATE theory.

Valid point on the color matching, but on the flip side of that doesn't that make
this car even THAT much more rare?

On a side note, I've only ever seen one other car on here that had that interior
and it was an alpine white M3 vert who left his top down one day and someone slashed all his seats

Are you serious? Who the hell would slash someone's seats?

Agreed, Steel Gray and Imola go together better. Not that I can say much, though, I don't think the Delphin over Cardinal on my e30 is exactly great.

If you really want a rare interior, find one of these:

How rare is impossible to say since BMW has not released any figures.

I'm really not keen on that blue :S But the kiwi leather is gorgeous. We have a guy over here with a Phoenix Yellow M3 with the Kiwi interior, looks amazing.

Saw this on Craigslist vancouver. The interior is nice but the color combo just doesn't work for me. To each their own though !

Very interesting....in 10 years on this forum I've never seen a Steel Gray Metallic/Laguna Seca Blue M3. Never.

Very rare interior, regardless of exterior color.

It's rare on LSB and even more rare on any other color.

If you really want a rare interior, find one of these:

There was actually a guy selling an entire Kiwi colored interior here not too long ago.
