BSM 1M got wrapped in Avery Intense Blue Gloss (~ Laguna Seca Blue)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
At last, at last: a Belgian (1ADDICTS member (gs/e60/1m?)) recently took the plunge and asked Santa Claus to wrap his BSM 1M in Avery Intense Blue Gloss (which appears to be some kinda blue having the same look 'n feel as Laguna Seca Blue and Santorini Blue), except for the roof and side mirrors (dark grey) and the interior door panels (original BSM).

And Santa apparently granted his wish. Very likely the owner will resist unwrapping that present for the next couple of years.

The owner is a 1ADDICTS member (gs/e60/1m?)

This as nothing to do with bravery you know

We had many laughs in the early stage of how many of us wanted a blue one

even with a.... sunroof ....butdidn't get it.

Well finally I have no sunroof but everything else

Brave move my good friend....I also thought about what a blue 1M might look like in my driveway so earlier this year I did some work...I think BMW seriously missed the mark in not offering a blue color choice....

Was the grey 1M originally VO or did he/she just use that as a color compliment?

Car looks great. Black kidney, mirror cap, and roof break up the color perfect. Well done. Are thosematte black rims?


Agree that it would have been great to have a blue option on the 1M. My vote: Interlagos

LSB would have been a great color choice for the 1M.

I wasn't a fan of "wrapped" cars until I saw this one. This one is very nice!

For you basketball fans, could one say that LSB is "Carolina Blue." and LMB is "Duke Blue?"
