Should be SGM.

But man all ive learned from all of these customs cars is that the 1M should have come in more than 3 colors!

I own and love Space Grey, but I think that Candy Gray Metallic wrap looks much better.

Such a special car deserves a special color. If I were to wrap (or paint - loved that Dakar Yellow) a 1M (assuming I was lucky enough to own one), I wouldn't chose a color that looked so similar to a stock 1er color.

So, if the 1M would have been made available in AW and BSM only, and someone would wrap/paint it in VO, quite some enthusiasts of the ///M fanbase would applaud the vivid color choice, don't you think so ?

I actually think VO is good color choice for the 1M! I have always said that it should have only been available in VO and 2 other more unique colors rather than AW and BSM.

Here is a few of my favorites:
LSB

DY

Atlantis

Hellrot

Monte Carlo

Fire Orange:

Java Green

And still another one in grey (3M Matte Grey Foil wrap).

Due to the license plate and color, I remembered seeing this one over here already
