This is a great thread!

So, if this is Montego, what does Lemans look like? How is Lemans different?

IMO Montego is way brighter and lighter. Personally, Le Mans is my favourite blue colour but the 1er looks pretty good in Montego as well.

Agreed!

I wanted to cry when I found out the US didn't get Le Mans Blue. It's far and away my favorite color of them all. I still like Montego Blue, but the Le Mans Blue will be the one that got away

I'm obviously biased since this is the color I have but I almost got SGM and am glad i didn't (although all the colors are incredible). The Montego takes on so many different colors and catches the light nicely so you see different shades of blue which highlight all the curves. I am not particularly fond of the bottom side skit (pot belly) curve or the headlights but this color doesn't seem to over accentuate these curves IMO. Sometimes the blue takes on a bit of an indigo blue which I like a lot. Good luck.
