Beautiful M3 man! That color is very "loud" as some would say, but she is definitely a looker. I would have jumped on it too if I would have had the opportunity. Thanks for sharing!

Wow when I read "mint M3" in the title of this thread, I was under the impression you were using mint as a metaphor for clean, immaculate, and/or flawless with reference to the overall condition of the vehicle. Upon opening the thread I see you really "meant" the car is literally mint - in color LOL

All kidding aside it is a unique color and a nice car - congrats

Thank you. I am all for the color, really think it compliments the body lines well. My biggest issue is being the brightest car on the street. Green is great, but it's a lot of attention and windows being knocked on for questioning.

Possibly signal or a repaint. BMW North America did confirm this as the only one they produced in North America.

How many times do people come up to you and ask if the car color is the original color? I get asked that all the time! "I've never seen a BMW that color before." is the common comment.

I love your mint green M3! Looks great!
