Of the four colors LBB is the only color that I think shows the lines of the car well. It's the color I am going to get but honestly I am not thrilled about it. I prefer darker blues and BMW has an amazing assortment of blues that I think would be far better.

THIS is a true reflection of what LBB looks like in the metal.... must say its a little too green for my liking. Not sure what to do as the other colours available are a little boring!

It's weird isn't it? All the photo's I have seen of LBB are a lot darker than this.

It's quite confusing, i'm not sure I like the colour in the metal but I LOVE the colour in the press photo's.

It's NOTHING like any pics other than the last one, which is straight teal (at least on the 3 X6M's I've seen on rainy and sunny days).

When I saw the LBB M2 @ the Brussels show it definitely looked like that colour, mind you, indoor and under 100000 W of lighting.

Cheers

Did you manage to get any pictures?

The only LBB I have seen was on an X6M, I hope the M2 is a different darker shade but I fear it won't be. Here is another pic I found...M2 in LBB compared to Estoril 3

This. I've seen the colour three times now, once on the M2 itself indoors, and twice on an X6M outside. The colour looks exactly like this under real lighting, and was the reason I switched my order from LBB to BSM. The colour looks so much better in pictures than in the flesh.

to me, this is a good representation of LBB. u can clearly see next to Esotril Blue, LBB definitely has some green in the blue color

The LBB "pops" which is none existing for the other colors.
All edge and contours will be so more obvious due to the intense reflection of the color.
Personally for me the only color that give the true depth.

Have to agree, i'll be changing my order to Mineral Grey.

Quite annoyed at the lack of colours, would love the Red you can get on the M235i, looks awesome on this mock-up

I have seen LBB with EB IRL, and the best photo to appreciate LBB is the one of the M2 next to the 3-series EB.

If you do not like the green-ish on LBB, then LBB is definately not for you.
