Looks a bit darker than Estirol Blue. Closer to Le Mans?

Looks great Scott. How is this distinguished from Estoril Blue and Monte Carlo?

Recall you explaining those two were very similar colours.

I love it! Please tell me this will for sure be the blue offered on the M2?! This would make me very happy!

Did I mention that I'm #3 on the list for an M2 at my local dealership?!

I'm still the first and only person on my dealers list. I will be very happy with Silverstone II if it's available!

Too bad no BMW Individual for the M2. I don't like all these pale yet flashy or unconventional colours BMW is bringing out.

I still like the Sakir Orange and Austin Yellow. Not a fan of that new baby blue color. I think the M2 would look great in either SO or AY>

Not a fan. Come on BMW, what happened to the great color choices that we had for the E36 M3?

Was there more than one color of X4 concept?

I saw this and took some photos in LA of the X4 Concept... It is much more baby blue then the photo in the OP.

Same color? (Does not look the same but not sure if OP color hue is heavily edited or not).

Hell yeah. That's a proper blue.

If I get one mine will be black. I am not a big fan of the current BMW M color palette... Fortunately black is timeless , and rare on the 1M !


As it is though, since all the blue birds were disappointed that there was no blue on the 1M, at least there is a blue available for the M2
