best colour for e92 lci?

Hi all,

Now i know this is personal preference but i'd like to find out the best colour that suits the e92 lci and show off its lines best.

I currently have a sapphire black 335i e92 lci.

I have detailed and while it looks beautiful when clean it shows up every mark and looks bag of poo when not

Really like the colour of the newer M cars like the silverstone metallic, marina blue and sakhir orange.

Not sure if these colours would suit the e92 shape??

Any one had their e92 wrapped ?

would love to see some pics of any e92's in non standard colour.

I had Ruby black, as a pre Lci the red tinge in good light meant it's my fave; just that little bit more special than sapphire black.

Nicest alternative on a LCI , was a sports plus model I think I saw which was actually Silverstone.
Didn't have much luck googling an exact model but an (okayish) you tube video of a 320d attached.

ruby black is lovely and has caught my eye as a potential favourite. Also liking the bronze matt 😎

Black sapphire.

Other than that I think few colours look better on an e92 or e93 than Santorini Blue:



That's a member's car (from the US forum) and I believe is a wrap.

I have a Saphire Black e92 also. When dirty it simply upsets me beyond words.

As for the best colour, I think it's probably an individual colour, maybe something a bit different and rare.

Are you considering a wrap? What colours are you thinking?

Probably a bit boring for some, but I love Space Grey with an Ivory leather option...

I agree when clean and the sun is out sapphire black pops and looks cool but it is a black car and a pig to keep clean.

yeh im looking at wrapping my car really liking the matt bronze 😎
