Interesting. Never thought BMW's could finesse the Lamborghini greens or yellows very well, will be curious how this turns out with the twin coffin.

I think the color options sound more appealing than the F8x at least.

Same here, was hoping for a darker green, too. It would be really tough to decide for a color. No Silverstone (or any silver), no lighter gray... and the other colors (beside black, white and gray) are mostly too flashy for my taste. Tanzanite Blue is actually the one I like the most.

Seems pretty red to me. I've seen many on the road now and in different lighting.

Then again not all of us see the same exact colour
And you'd be right.

Definitely but, like you, having been spoiled with a previous Tanzanite M3, do I want another?

That’s a design I really dislike since it make the wheels look small, gives the car a grasshopper stance and an overall bloated weak look.

However looking at the concept 4 and other recent BMW designs as the M8 and even the X5 BMW use trickery with a character line and metal work creating a visual of a shelf breaking up this section so the ugliness disappears. I think the the M4 use the same trick once the camouflage is gone.

Nice to see that the quad pipes has grown in diameter to a pleasing size.

Good. M cars should have wild colors. The colors on offer for the F8x M cars were soooooo lame.

You know...at least Austin Yellow had a legacy line from Phoenix Yellow and it looked fairly interesting, somewhat of a mustardy-gold.

Now, it seems like the only legacy line of this color traces back to a spinach-kale dinner. And let's be honest. It looks kinda like diarrhea.

Overall proportions seem ok. but the 4 door looks best. This is yet to be really decided upon unveiling. Any more news of the big grill ?

My wife's 335is Coupe was Le Mans Blue and our Z4 M Roadster is Interlagos Blue. She replaced the 335is with an Individual San Marino Blue M3.

Overcast they nearly look the same. In bright sunlight the TR pops red.
And in bright sunlight the Sakhir Orange definitely pops ORANGE!

You both have excellent taste! I think IB might be my favorite.

Damn. Was really hoping it would be darker, maybe like an oak green metallic or BRG.

A friend of mine, upon first seeing Austin Yellow called it "Kinder Scheiße"...

(rough translation: "baby shit")

Exactly, that's my problem as well. But if I have to decide right now, I'd probably choose Tanzanite Blue again. I may change my opinion once I see the car with the offered colors, we'll see.
