That's how I took it too - which means there's hope that the the M2 Comp's grilles won't be overly large (which I personally do not like as well as the original size).

Watched this YouTube vid last night and remembered you guys discussing Sunset Orange...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0rUhHQM3lc

This M240i is in Sunset Orange, but you can see they filmed in Canada on a really cloudy day and the car looks more red. In fact, I didn't catch the beginning where it looks more orange, and about halfway through I mentioned to my wife that this red looks really cool, before watching more and realizing it wasn't red. I think in bright sunlight you see the orange come out, but in dimmer light it looks much more red to my eyes. It's a more interesting color than I realized.

Sakhir Orange looks good but the examples I have seen of Sunset orange have been meh. Valencia Orange was a far more vibrant color.

Scott, can you clarify? We're you talking about the front end grills or the HS paint sample?

The corner pic that was leaked which shows the hockenheim silver color is the M2 and I donít believe Scott would contest that if he had seen the M2 competition.

Nevermind - I remember this from Scott (it clarifies everything)

It works from a small checklist to increase its experience, whilst not major I am told that the feeling is noticeable rather than just an increase in power.
The new M2 is all about a more visceral experience which in the current car is phenomenal. I have not driven it but I can't wait to."

Hmmmmm...gotcha - SCOTT was seeming to say otherwise. I guess we will know soon enough.

It looks like I'll be going Black Sapphire color. The others colors are a big turnoff for me, especially the silver and blue.

You know, I never liked LBB until I saw it in person, and when it was clean. It's even more impressive on a sunny day, or in a bit of light at night. Both of those circumstances bring out the best in the color IMO.

I have high hopes for HKS - can't wait to see it on the car.

I agree with Edtex on LBB. LBB is TEAL as far as I am concerned. It's not a proper blue. Yes it's a pretty color in the sun.. yes.. but like it's forebear.. Laguna Seca Blue.. and even Yas Marina Blue to an extent.. if one prefers a proper blue like Interlagos Blue, San marino Blue, Avus Blue etc... then there is no cozying up to a Chiclet color blue just because the word blue is in the name.

I far prefer Estoril Blue if it's going to be a light shade of blue... the darker blue/blacks like Tanzanite Blue, Azurite Black and Carbon Black are my faves.

The lack of a proper gray is making me feel blue.

Estoril Blue is my all time favorite blue. Reminds me of my 2000 M Roadster. It was Estoril Blue, blue top, blue accent leather.

They should do one in San Marino blue!

I may have to do one myself. That would be rare. (Someone photoshopped the photo below, which of course is of the current model). Seems like the M3/4 CS and M5 and current M3 (which several of us did individually) look amazing in SMB.

SMB is my all time favorite color. I bet it would sell better than LBB or any type of orange if BMW offered it as a standard color.
