1M different color opinions?

As you know i wrapped my color to dark red but wrap didnt statisfy me, it cant provide the deapt of real paint and as you come close to there isnt mirror reflect looking.

I have been thinking of repaint my 1M. Its not a big problem for me because i dont think to sell my car but i want to look original as close as possible.

If BMW provide you to choose order any color which one do you choose?
I have two color in my mind Atlantis Blue and Grigio Medio

By the way can someone photoshop 1M to grigio medio i really love the color but i cant imagine how it's going to be look on 1M.

I think Leguna Seca would look great on a 1M.

To get you some ideas: a 1M that got a grey wrap treatment (the pictures are real).

But if you're thinking of blue, then seriously consider Monte Carlo Blue:

I also vote for Monte Carlo.

If this had been an option, I would have ticked that box before I even looked at the price.

Anything to help the average statistician label me as a road rule breaking psycho.

Numerous forum fellows told the same, as can be concluded from the "Give us a blue 1M" thread:

Can84 - I like those two grey colors you posted. Rudi's smurf 1M does get A LOT of looks. When we rolled thru every little Alpine village... everyone would just point and keep their eyes on his blue smurf car. Its a keeper.

But I also like those off grey colors you posted. What ever color you go with.... be different from the normal VO/AW/BSM 1M color choice!


Go with a color that no one else has done on a 1M.

Of course I'm biased, but I think a mineral grey 1M would look pretty sick.

For something more colorful, I know there are a bunch of people that would love to see an interlagos blue or maybe a fan favorite - imola red II. Some other good options would be montego blue which looked great on the 1-series and sakhir orange would also look great, but is probably a little too similar to valencia orange and so might not stand out as much.

Monte Carlo is a fantastic color but also available on non-M cars. I prefer Interlagos Blue which as far as I know was always an ///M color only.
