Too flashy, tacky for a regular car...a 335 is nothing special. However I need more pic of that E91 335 in the middle. That thing looks sexy

it looks like a really really good paint job......... for some riced out car. The finish is too plain in my opinion. its just a really plain orange, not like the GTS orange

335i is just a regular, nice car but nothing to do with sports car. Even ordinary M3 is not a real sports car but a very nice GT. M3 GTS can be defined a sports car IMO.

I think Ontario Gold might be nice, but you have to see Individual colors in live conditions before ordering. I may have to visit Germany before next car in order to make decisions.

"...Currently the only non-Inka cars apart from the M3 GTS are owned by some exclusive BMW personell. I know of one who has an Inka Orange 135i and another who has an M3.

As of currently the color remains exclusive to the M3 GTS and these two high level execs who are keen to keep their cars exclusive. BMW will not paint another car in Inka Orange due to the exclusiveness of the M3 GTS unless the color gets approved for series production - ie 1M.

Inka Orange is one color being looked at for the 1M but we also have a metallic Orange that might be more appropriate for the car , Power Green and Phoenix Yellow could return too...."

I absolutely hate how bmw took gt3/Lambo orange and put it on the M3 GTS's. I personally think it looks terrible and they should have used a exclusive M color instead of being lazy. Something like Dakar Yellow or a LSB would have been more appropriate...
