This

An IB vert on cinnamon, lowered on LM's with a cinnamon BBK and a csl trunk is something I'd kill for

I was in a 325Ci vert, Blue with tan, saw this one, took the next day off of work, drove 200+ miles and came home with it. I told myself if I ever found this combo, I would have to jump on it...and jump is what I did...
So...my favorite is what I own. If I had to pick a second one, it would be Black and Cinnamon.

I am still searching for my IR/IR vert...

I saw an AW/LSB vert two days ago but wasnt able to follow the guy and ask he if wanted to sell it (or get a picture) - This is a colour combo I've never seen before in a vert and it looked great!

My ultimate choice would be IR/IR as well. My second choice was Carbon Black/Cinnamon, which is what I purchased after a year looking. I had found the IR/IR I wanted with a hard top, but was to late to get it....

I've got IR on black, but I'd love me some LS Blue on black. 2nd choice would be IR on IR. I'm not a big fan of white cars, although I can definitely appreciate AW on cinn!
