Phoenix Yellow is one of the best M3 colors I've seen in real life. Way better than Dakar (which IMO I think is a terrible "faded" "left in the sun too long" color)

I've seen both in color, and I still think that Phoenix is gross. JMO.

It wasn't too light, and it wasn't too dark (like Le Mans Blue - I think it looks almost purple. Never seen it in perso, but maybe it's just how pictures show it).

Second favorite is silver-grey metallic. I think that was the best silver/grey combo they made. It's kind of got that dolphin look to it.

My Ride: Coupè
Estoril blue


Steel grey metallic (my color)


Orient blue


whatever color this is


Can't really think of much I don't like, except some "pastel" shades from 90's which just look dated and faded today.

I haven't seen many yellow cars that I really wanted to own, but Phoenix is tolerable.


Carbon over Cinnamon



Techno violet, goddamn



Jerez Black (I'm a little bias). It's hard to really capture this one. Like Carbon black, it looks dark blue in the right light

Techno violet is amazing. As far as the blacks go (racist), I'm a fan of Jerez and black sapphire metallic (even though I'm biased). They both offer so much more depth compared to Jet Black, in my opinion.

Agreed. sapphire black is incredible. Had a saphhire black e46, amazing car. Really the only color I don't like is silver. Too inbetween. I am a contrasty type. That being said, certain silver cars can pull it off, but still would argue would be outdone with a car of the same trim in different color ie. white or black.

Phoenix Yellow is definitely a color that is/was needed in the "M" color palette. I loved my '03 PY M3.
