Someone needs to respray/vinyl their car this color

Was at our local BMW CCA meet last night and this gorgeous Estoril Blue e46 M3 showed up. I have personally never seen one in Estoril, turns out its a BMW Individual order which is hard to get here in the US, over in Europe they are a bit more common.





its close to Montego, but a bit lighter. I love it. Someone needs to redo their car in Estoril, it would be different!

For some reason I am a mild retard when it comes to changing colors in Photoshop, does someone want to try and change my car to be Estoril so we can see?? sorry I dont have a more evenly toned picture of my car.

it'd be a waste of $$ to repaint a montego blue car to Estoril...

That Estroil blue is a gorgous color combo with the Cinnamon interior Don't care too much for the wheels though And yes it was a color originally available on the E36's.

Here's a tip for Photoshop for changing the color...

Open the image in Photoshop, then go to Image -> Adjustments -> Hue/Saturation

Then, click on your car while that dialog box stays open and you can play with the sliders for Hue / Saturation / Lightness

It will change the other blue cars in that pic, but at least you can see what it would look like..
