Your favorite BMW M Blue

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Part two of the BMW M blue thread. Here is a poll showing all the BMW M blues and asking your opinion on the best. By BMW M it means at one point it was an M exclusive colour and may or may not be available now on non M cars. By blue it means its primarily a blue colour and does not include other colours such as "black" which shows a blue tint.


http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1222320

Granted its hard to post a single picture to capture the complete colour these blues offer given the many faces they have. This is reference only.

Macao Blue



Avus Blue



Estoril Blue



LeMans Blue



Laguna Seca Blue



Interlagos Blue



Monte Carlo Blue



San Marino Blue



Yas Marina Blue


Long Beach Blue

I picked Estoril. But it was tough - I also love Monte Carlo and Long Beach.

I like many of the blues in this list - especially Estoril - but I still went with Yas Marina. I looked at the poll as if I had access to all of the blues for the same price when I ordered my car. It would have been really, really hard to choose between Yas and Estoril; they are definitely my top two. The others I would have passed on. I like Interlagos as well, but considering that I've owned two IB M cars, I'm over that color.

I loved my Estoril on my F30 335. Was disappointed I couldnt get it at the normal price on the F80 M3, but then I found San Marino and fell in love.

It's a Porsche color that some people have ordered via BMW Individual Manufaktur. Not relevant to this thread, though it is a great color.

I couldn't decide between Interlagos and Laguna Seca. To me those are just M3 colors. San Marino looks nice, what about Velvet Blue? Those two look similar to me.

Sorry about that, I misunderstood the thread. I assumed all these were individual like colors because none are offered standard except for YMB.

No problem, it wasn't necessarily made completely clear. Plus, I can understand how the pictures of late model BMWs painted with the vintage M blues could lead you down that path. If you look at the OPs prior thread, you can see the genesis of the discussion.

Yea I'll admit it might not have been as clear as it could have. Its just mean to be Blues that are M specific meaning any blue that started out as only being available on an M car.
