I will be buying a new M3 later this year and at first I had decided on the Pheonix Yellow, but now I'm starting to have second thoughts. I liked the yellow because only one other guy has a yellow M3 where I live, but there are quite a few black ones. Now that I think about it though, it would be such a beautiful car to have solid black paint, solid black tint, and black blinker covers etc.

I'm going back and forth and thought I'd ask here what everyone likes best.

Cheers

One of my friends got a E46 M3 Laguna Seca on Grey with every option, the car is...SICK!! But in your case, you gotta look at it this way, Black is a gangsta color, and White is PIMP color, so take your choice. Forget yellow, you'll get sick of it, besides you GOTTA get Imola Red interior, and thats not offered with yellow :lol:

I drive a yellow vw gti vr6, and trust me, yellow gets old


but my vw is gratuitous yellow. The yellow BMW offers is less flashy, I sort of like it. I see tons of Black ones, go get a yellow! (Laguna Seca Blue is much better though :P)

Go for the carbon black it is the best and a great resale colour.
Yellow is like a baby's nappy after a big feed.............

Hi!! How are you? I love white and green.

I would get a white. If not the white, then get the Oxford green metallic.
If not that, then get the Seca Blue.

Thanks.
BYE.

I would get the Imola Red or Alpine white with the Imola red interior. But thats just me. Black is too hard to maintain, just a pain in the ass to keep clean.
