Question Lemans Blue Question

Hi All. I am new to this forum and am interested in purchasing my first 3 series.

I currently am interested in the "Lemans Blue Metallic" and and wondering which years and models this color is available in?

I have searched quite a bit and can't find a definitive answer.

Thanks all!

Isn't it:
e90 2009-2011
e92 2010-2012

It may be 2009-2012 for the e92, I only know it goes to 2012 as I own one

Amazing color. I have it and with the M-Sport package the car looks way more aggressive compared to a normal 3 series.

le mans blue is an awesome color, don't get me wrong.

but i have one and it doesn't seem as... dynamic as some of its counterparts.

it doesn't look metallic unless you're close up and doesn't look as good as a lot of colors look.. imo at least.

it is a great color, but i would be happier with sapphire black or carbon black or something like that

its the most amazing color ever created by the gods of BMW. just my opinion. and no i wouldn't recommend it to anyone because that would make it more common and would take away from the uniqueness of my car. Totally kidding. Go for it, i fall in love with my car again each and every time i see it. the color is amazing. my color combo is lemans blue with oyster so its blue with white. most amazing color combo ever.

^^ haha, hate to burst your happy bubble, but I have the same combo. And mines the only LM e92 335 in the country (gotta love small markets)

OP mines an '08 e92, so it is available pre lci, I'm just not sure which markets.

I think Montego is 2006-2011 really. Pretty sure they had it in offer all the time E90 was in production.
Also, Montego is pretty nice and shiny color in sunlight or darkness.
LeMans blue is for those who want a slightly darker and without purple blue color.
