This is a reflection of how bad things have gotten in the bmw community. All these replies talking about the paint on a race car. No wonder bmw puts in 0 effort into making drivers cars anymore. Just slap on some stupid Aqua blue paint or piss yellow and everyone is happy

On the flip side, happy to see bmw even bothers to field some cars

Much more awesome than I expected. Would be cool to have race cars have this half black half white scheme without the fireworks as a "normal" livery

I've never liked any of the "art" cars, but this isn't bad.

Yeah, because motorsport and iconic livery are so totally unrelated

Oh, and Sims just drove it home for BMW in the #25 car. P1 in GTLM after 6 hours of hard racing. So suck on that too.

What happened to the #24? I had to run out at about an hour remaining and BMW was 1st and 2nd. I came back and caught the last 15 minutes to see the #24 stopped at 161 laps. Was pretty bummed.

It's a variation of last years livery used by Schubert motorsport in the ADAC GT Masters championship..





.. looks better without the silly firework graphics IMHO.

I was there, but then again, my brother is the president of the track (Michael Printup) I was stoked to see the M6 take the win in the GTLM class! Here's some stuff from Victory Lane

The races are great and the paint jobs are great. It's the fact that everyone here is focused on the paint jobs which is sad. But the race his weekend was great and it's good to see atleast some people still actually watch

Maybe they should keep like livery a little longer since they got the win! Glad to see the M6 doing some work... finally.

Agreed. Motor sport stripes are supposed to be bold, but I think those would look better a little more traditionally sized. When I was a kid and the first M3 came out, the first one I saw was a radio controlled car and I wanted it so bad. It had ///M stripes, so it's just not an M car in my mind without them. At least a few stripes on the front and rear bumper of a street car is needed for me as long as it doesn't clash with the car's color. Race cars? Sky is the limit! Great livery indeed.

You apparently missed the art cars. I think the BMW fans on this site have talked at length about the various class rules frustrating BMW's efforts. There's also been some pretty unlucky breaks but the team seems to have turned it around. I think today's showing highlights that.

The topic was also in advance of the race and was a simple acknowledgement of the cars new look, not race results.

But sure, taking off the cuff jokes as evidence us dolts can only comprehend paint schemes makes sense too. /rant.
