Just pick the color scheme that you think best reflects your day-to-day personality. I don't think I could drive a brightly-colored car. I prefer to be more understated. A lot of people would be bored with my color choices, however.

This looks stunning. Such a classy look, with limited buttons and gadgets. Looks like a yacht interior rather than a cars.

this man speaks the truth

I've had my e46 M parked for the better part of 6 years. I'm a total idiot, I know...but I'm waiting until (a) I leave NYC or (b) pay off my MBA debt before I start my WAY LATE wheel mods...I need to own CSLs, TE37s, and BBS LMs (in that order) before I sell my M.

One thing I never understood. No contrast. No color. Nothing. I hate black anything.... i don't even think black looks that good when the paint is in mint condition. Mirror like, yes... but even at that, just does nothing for me

My suggestion would be to get an Individual in LSB. If you love LSB, YM is not a replacement for it at all. This is more of a Santorini Blue lacking the teal that makes LSB so desirable. If you want metallic LSB, Long Beach Blue is the way to go, or the new Snapper Rocks Blue.

My E36 M3 is painted LSB and my wife has an LBB M2. Yas is way too feminine.

Yes, you have to set it up through the dealer. Everything goes through the dealer, you can't talk to BMW corporate unless you have some serious issues.

I'm probably the forum's biggest BMW critic but the Euro delivery program is probably one of the finest in the industry. It's something I definitely want to do sometime in my life.

Depends on how "individual" the order is. Like I said, if it's a color that they offer on another model it's not as bad.

Too much brown. If they toss some black in there, it would break it up nicely. Love the color though.

I like it, along with the deeper red they offer. Such a nice homage to their earlier models

However most full leather interiors offered by porsche offer black accents as well (headliner/top half of the dashboard/etc)
