I was planning on waiting of an M4, but this car recently became available at BMW Portland, so I jumped on it while I could. While the color is not for everyone, I really like it. As far as I know, this is the only E92 produced by BMW in this color.

You will be seen in any Oregon rain, and ice storms will have no effect on you.

I must admit when I first saw the color ....it gave me pause, however, the more I look at it, the more it grows on me. Cool to have an expressive unique M3. Betcha CF mods would look especially sharp and further reinforce its "custom" persona. Congrats and good luck!

Thank you everyone for the kind words. As a person who has had some bright vehicles, along with many race cars, I really feel like this color fits me well.

BMW's name for the color is "Mint Green." The code I have is just the individual color code, but not the actual color code.

Here is the plate:

I'm impartial to this color. Is not my car so whatever makes the owner happy.

However, I would bet anything that if this same exact color was painted aftermarket by a third party, it wouldn't receive the praise that's it's getting lol
