One of the final stage 1M test mules was in blue. Would have beaten all three colors.

Very true. I like the M3 in blue very much as well. Thanks for the comment

Interlagos blue first choice. Other blue second. Of colors it came with black is the best looking IMO. Orange and White fluctuate . One day white looks better other day orange. Black is the rarest but also will probably look the worst earlier.

And this 1M test mule seems to be rather red than Valencia Orange and does not feature yet the M3 side-mirrors, but if the roof is no wrap, that looks like CF:

Initial 1M test mule seats + silver trim surrounding the gear shift and on top of the dash, subsequently replaced by the Kyalami Orange stitching concept we know + black/grey trim with alcantara tissue:

I have a Valencia Orange, but the Black Sapphire looks bad ass in person. I just couldn't deal with cleaning it everyday. As much as I love my 1M, I simply don't have the time nor the resources to be washing everyday. I give her a bath at the very least once every Saturday.

To me...and others here might disagree, but I believe the 1M is a special car. With that said I think it requires a special color IMHO. I love the black, around twilight it's awsome, but keeping it clean is a tough job. The white to me is just too sedate. So that leaves me with my favorite choice...V.O. It's distinctive, "says" something special to me and is a color I do not see often

Well said! However I like SB the most, V.O. comes in second very strong. Don't like the A.W. at all tbh. Agreed, black is hard to keep clean One day I will buy one!

Can't go wrong with either color. I initially placed my order for VO, but subsequently changed to AW as I felt it best represents BMW Motorsports, plus it was like a fresh canvas to start with cosmetic mods

I own a BSM and love it, but on any given day I wish I could drive a VO or AW too! BSM is a bitch to keep clean-looking, but when it does it's soooooo bad-ass. As stated above, can't go wrong with any of the three factory colors.

Any of the 3 colours for me, I first wanted black but we sold a SB prior, I also really liked the VO but my wife ordered the car and she wanted AW, firstly we have not had a white car for many years and secondly she thought it was the true BMW Motorsport colour, I asked for months if she wanted to change to VO which she almost did, for a min lol but have to say I am very happy with the white and black theme we have going on
