Doesn't anyone else have the sedan in Montego Blue? I'm seriously considering this color and need to see more photo's before I make a final decision.

I'm getting my Montego 3 this weekend!!! The only difference is the wheels...I'm getting mine with the Star Spoke (Styling 159) 17" wheels with the run-flat all-season tires.

That looks too dark to be Montego Blue. It's more likely LeMans Blue or something.

Dont get me wrong, I love montego as a color.

I saw it at the dealership on an E90 (with ugly orange reflectors of course)... It alsmost seems too dynamic for the E90.

It is a GREAT color, and it would be the first on my list for the Z4 or E92. Just make sure you see it on the E90 in person before purchasing...

That is Montego Blue. I got to see it in person and now I'm getting it. Once I get I will post pictures but I am certain that the color you see above is Montego Blue and not LeMans Blue.

The E60 with the Arabian license plate is neither Montego or LeMans, it's Monaco Blue. The M5 above is Interlagos Blue.

I'm pretty sure that's monaco blue, If I look away from the spot where the sun is hitting directly on I see a deep , deep blue.

I think all the white buildings and the white vehicle behind it are makeing it appear 'lighter' as well.

I have a monaco blue 325, it's a very dynamic color depending on the sun / lighting, which is why I like it so much. Although sometimes even after glossing my tires people will still think it's a black car until I point to the wheel and go, "see that? that's black!"

I'm so f'n PI$$ED! I just got a voice mail from my dealer stating that I might not be getting my 328xi this weekend. Since I'm doing a Substitution of Collateral with the dealer they have to hear back from the bank just to make sure everything squares out just right but they haven't heard from them yet. Now...instead of getting it this weekend I have to get it the following week.

I know a week isn't much but I'm sure you can all relate when I say, "I WANT MY CAR NOW DAMMIT!" :mad:

I guess I'll have to wait longer then. POOP!!!!!!!!

ok, after looking at the offecial threads of mystic blue and monaco blue, it seems that the E60 i showed is "mystic blue"...

Monaco blue is very very dark, almost black...

here's the official mystic blue thread:

and here's for the monaco blue:

I am so pissed off! My dealership is still waiting for the bank to get back to them with the Substitution of Collateral forms. Until they come back to them with those I still can't get my 328xi. I'm hoping it falls through this week!

Just got word from the bank...the forms in regards to the Substitution of Collateral have been approved. It should be a matter of time before I finally have my 3.
