I saw this Matte Blue M3 at car show in person and EVERY SINGLE FINGERPRINT was visable. The BMW spokesman was talking near the car about how hard it was to get fingerprints off the car..

I LOVE the look of the matte... especially the brown used on the Grancoupe... but i think this is a paint for the car you take out only when weather is perfect and birds are nowhere in sight...

for me, someone who loves to drive the hell out of his cars, not my choice. If I was a car collector, and wanted an M3 example before the NA8 went away... i'd buy one in a heartbeat.. perhaps in Frozen red, blue, white, black , grey AND silver ~Frost
