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

No I haven't, sounds neat though.

I guess I just prefer the greenish blues to purplish ones.

Edit: just saw photo above my post. Not bad on the M2.

Keep posting more LBB pictures guys. The more LBB pics I see the more I realize I picked the right color. I love all different shades of LBB, even when it looks like turquoise.

Now that's a blue that I could live with day to day. LBB on the other hand, I can't.

A vinyl wrap in that colour would be epic.

Wow that SMB.
I remember it on an E46 M3 CS irl and it was not sporty at all, too dark for blue imho and with a purplish hue, and looking at the pics nothing has changed.
Alright for a 7 series or something.

Cheers
Robin

SMB has never been on an E46. SMB was a new color for the F12 M6. You're thinking of Interlagos Blue which is similar but a bit darker and much less metallic. IB does not have "pop" like SMB.

SMB is a sporty color but I could see how one would think Interlagos is not, especially in overcast light or if it was dirty. SMB is super metallic and is really eye catching in person.

I stand corrected. But my statement still stands. i don't like that colour for almost any BMW. Better on some small Peugeots an Renaults overhere...

Still yet to see LBB in person but still loving it in all the pics, i think the different colors it gives off is one of the reasons I'm liking it so much.
