Interestingly (and very sad of me to spot this) it appears to have hybrid seats....it's got M3 backrests and centre squabs, but the squab side bolsters appear to be the more 'rounded', less bolstered design that you find in an M-Sport.

Agreed on the colour...nice and different but not sure I'd have the balls to buy 'brown'!

LOL I had a mini courtesy car in this colour a couple months back. Posted it on the forum and it got general disdain by all. Funny how on an M3 people actually quite like it..

The colour Marrakesh Brown has only been used in one other M3 in the world, which is a coupe
That's because it looks like a huge turd!

I've seen a few BMWs in that colour.

Especially on a bright sunny day it looks very good indeed. Reminds me a little of the old Ford colour Roman Bronze.

I think it works well on the vert because you can hide the roof away, so there's not so much to see

It's a popular colour on VWs at the moment.

You know why it's almost new...because when they picked up the car they asked for a refund....

Problem is that that colour won't sell well. It's a bit too much a "marmite" car, almost literally.

I remember - I thought the colour was good then. Not the car though - pants.

A Cooper S might look quite good in poo brown with white, or better black, roof....
