What custom color would you paint a 335is

My 335is isn't getting totaled after 14k worth of hail damage. Going with a carbon fiber roof, and a few other goodies.


What custom color would you choose if you could pick any color to pain your car.

So far I'm thinking:
Grigio Telesto
Brilliant white
Azurite black.

I need Three colors by tonight to have color samples tomorrow.

Ouch! Heard bout that crazy hail, didn't know in SA also :/.

I'd go with the 1M/ lime rock edition m3 orange

Edit: it's the sakhir orange right? An iS in that would be a first I think

Laguna Seca Blue. Glad to hear they aren't totaling your car...I think. You've had quite the string of bad luck.

Azurite Black or Jerez Black would be my picks. I saw someone's individual Azurite Black M4 with Golden Brown interior on M4post and that paint looked incredible.

Brightest silver you can find and add a ton of flake in an old school flame pattern bursting out with red tips, just Fkn with you , can't beat Gaurds Red if going red but I like the Lime Rock option also

You would give up LeMans Blue for that, if you had the opportunity? I wouldn't!

I personally wouldn't since I love it and it was a regular option color but I had a chance to go through BMW's individual color program a few days back. There were some just absolutely beautiful blues to choose from if I wanted to spend a extra $1-5k on paint. Laguna Blue is one of those classic M colors I always loved.
