Likelihood of Yas Marina Blue being a standard color on G80?

I love my YMB F80. What is the likelihood, given that it sold fairly well on the current model, it will be a standard color for the G80?

It seems that BMW likes to change the shade of blue with each new generation. Estoril Blue was popular on the F30 but it was changed to Portimao Blue on the G20. The only colors that never change are Alpine White and Black Sapphire.

Great color, but I doubt it will be offered.

This is the answer to the OP's question!

My wife had a 2011 335is Coupe (E92) in Le Mans Blue. Beautiful blue, one of the best! We also have a 2006 Z4 M Roadster (E85) in Interlagos Blue. Another beautiful blue! And then for the F8x M3/M4 the only blue offered was Yas Marina Blue. No thanks! BMW offered Estoril Blue II on the F30/F32 but not on the F80/F82.

I went the opposite way for my 2016 M4 and got Sakhir Orange, (IMHO) the best color available that wasn't white, gray, or black. My wife, desperately wanting a decent blue for her 2018 M3 decided to go Individual, but after doing only a very few M3s in Individual Le Mans Blue, BMW decided not to offer LMB for the M3/M4 anymore. So she went with Individual San Marino Blue, which is an absolutely stunning blue.

BMW has offered much nicer blues on other models (e.g. Snapper Rocks Blue). Each new generation brings new blues and the older blues get phased out. For Yas Marina Blue, that would be a blessing...

I would strongly consider paying for the color pending the release palette.

However, going Indie also opens the door up to tons of other colors.

I love blue and don't hate Yas Marina, but it was just too much of a statement for me to buy. I would have gone for a bright blue like Atlantis, but prefer slightly darker hues or at least something not as different/flashy as Yas Marina was.

It's hard to say whether it sold well or not because that was the only blue offered for $550. Tanzanite was $1950 and every other blue would have been $5000 so at those prices of course yas marina would be the one to sell the most.

Personally I like some blues but not yas so I hope they change it or at least that they offer a couple of different blues.

Maybe San Marino will be standard on G80. That would be both amazing and a kick in ass to all the folks that paid up for the color.

Not much of a kick in the ass if they have a ZCP 6MT, which apparently won't be available in the new G80 M3...

I thought 6MT is an option.

That said the F80ZCP does rock and despite some haters i think it will eventually earns its due as one of the GREAT M3s.
