You guys still have snow? Suckers! That LBB looks a lot better in the sun and when it's clean. I still don't think the F15/6 do the colour any justice.

I'm in Indiana and just snowed last night....fortunately it's supposed to be our last...we will see.

On the blues? Give me the one on the left and I think the sun would make it worse. Interlagos Blue would have been tits on the M2.

LBB is a polarizing colour. I liked it under the light at the car show, but not so much outside in flat light. I wonder if it will age as well as LSB. I would have ordered Yas Marina if it was an option as I love that shade on the F80 M3/4. Not a lot of colour choices with the M2 but at least the colours available are quite different from each other.

Although LBB is the most striking color offered on the M2, it ranks last in BMW blue's for me. LeMans is still my all time fave BMW blue.

I wonder what everyone is going to say when they head to their local M2 meetup, or when they bump into other M2s on the road, and every single one of them is LBB.

No thanks for me. BMWs and The Little Mermaid shouldn't cross over. Look, it's the same colour!!!

If you are referring to the tail of the mermaid to me it looks nothing like the color of the car, if you are talking about the amazing ocean blue colour in the background then yes it does look the same.

Arguing over pics is not going to solve anything. Maybe 1% of this forum has a calibrated monitor and most of the cameras are inaccurate as well.

You have to see it with your own eyes to decide. I'd still get it, but it has a strong green component. In fact, if it was named Long Beach Green I think there would be less argument...

A Ferrari and an M2 aren't really in the same ballpark. One expects to see every Ferrari in red. It's the only colour it should come in.

I disagree here! It is true that the M2 and a Ferrari is not in the same price range but every owner can have it the color they want for their car.

You clearly have never been to a Ferrari show were all the cars are red: it is so boring that the cars that are NOT red stand out more!

This is why Ferrari offers more than just red for their customers.

It looks even more teal than that IRL., which is fine if you want teal. I don't.
