Hmm, not really. I looked at Topaz Blue (was available on earlier 3- series) and Mystic Blue side by side under bright sun, and while Topaz has a slight purple hue, Mystic has a "slightest" green tint to the main blue color. And it appeared a little more "flat" to me, than Topaz. It looks great under subdued light, however. Arctic is much lighter than both, and is more of a pearlescent gray-green.
Anyway, since Le Mans Blue is not available in the US, and Topaz was discontinued, Mystic is the one I ordered for my 330i (with black leather/walnut). Picking up in Munich in less than three weeks !!! I will try to post photos on Oct 11, as soon as I get back to San Diego.
