Monaco Blue vs. Mystic Blue vs. Le Mans Blue

Does anyone have a picture of these 3 cars side by side to tell the difference between the 3?

From light to dark, it's Mystic, Le Mans, Monaco.
From sporty to stealthy, it's Mystic, Le Mans, Monaco.
Take your pick.

Le Mans is actually lighter than Mystic. Mystic only looks bright in good and direct lighting. Otherwise, it looks significantly darker.

Well according to the BMW.CA website Le Mans Blue isn't available in Canada. I know Monaco blue is too dark for me as my current car is about that colour and I'm sick of it being too dark. I would like to see the Mystic and Le Mans blues side by side in the same lighting conditions and make my own assumptions about which is lighter. Anyone have a pic of them side by side on the lot so the external factors are the same? I personally think Le Mans blue is lighter.

Everyone who has seen my car (prior to it being flooded) commented how much they liked the Monaco Blue, FWIW.

Too bad they don't let you pick the Orient Blue that's available on the 5 series. I think that's the best of the four....

No point really for you to look at Le Mans blue, since it's not available to us in North America.

I've looked at mystic and monaco so much and I just can't decide which one I like more. If I we could get Onyx blue in NA it would solve my problem though. But I'll just have to decide between Mystic and Monaco.

Gotta say I love my Mystic blue and have gotten many compliments on it. The first picture shows the variation depending on how the sunlight hits it. Although not shown well, it's got a lot of metallic effect in it. Inside, it looks darker. However, Monaco is almost black even in bright sunlight.



Although the picture below is of the bumper, it makes it look lighter/brighter.



Also, consider Interlagos blue--more purple in it.
Onyx blue looks like it's between Mystic and Monaco. Check this link:
