Well spotted - the dealer I bought the blacklines from gave me two black left hand inner sections - I'm waiting on the replacement blackline reversing light for the righ-hand side at the moment.

You aren't the first to say that the right side is the way it should have been, I actually like it better myself......

okay my friend, means the right brake/turn signal is a blackline - right? - so why dont you change only the left inner section back to stock - should look pretty?!

Color decision is coming up for me in january - MSport with lemans or indiv.azurite black - what do you think now, having your baby in front of your house - was it the right order?

thx&greetings from Austria

I like Le Mans, not sure on Azurite, that would cost you, what maybe Euros 2k extra for individual?

I think the smoked indicator and the clear reversing light might look weird? Not sure, I'll look at it some more.......

Had a look at an E90 with the M Sports Pack in one of the showrooms - it had the M 17" wheels. My God there is no comparison - Ugly !!! The Upgrade 18" wheels are the business, but the upgrade 18" wheels for the SE Models are the biz too

mickg007,

I don't completely agree with you. I do like the 17" wheels. I saw one today in a BMW showroom and made a picture. I must admit I prefer the 18" wheels as well but I'm afraid of losing all comfort because I think they are too large. When you drive a lot of kilometres a day comfort is important (I sometimes drive more than 700 kilometres in one day). That's why I understand people go for 17" wheels. The picture below isn't a quality picture and ofcourse it's always difficult to 'catch' with your camera what your eyes see. In person I liked the 17" wheels!

What's the difference between Le Man's blue and Interlagos? Can anyone outline the differences? Is one darker, richer, etc?

Also, can you get a different color interior with the M-Pack than that grey? I LOVE the cloth but I'd prefer a darker interior.

Interlagos is darker. I think the closest thing to LMB is Ultramarine Blue, which was on the original pre-release list of colors. I guess they cancelled it (UB) when they decided the light metallic blues were the hot color to offer with the M-sport pack.

You can order the leather interiors (black, etc.) with the M-pack. Check out any of the Euro BMW websites and 'build your vehicle.' Personally, I think the alcantara/cloth interior is the bomb -- I love its looks and functionality, no sliding around, cool in summer, warm in winter. Goes great with LMB and the alu trim. Probably tough to clean though -- anyone with experience?

Now here is something I didn't know!

As has been debated at length LeMan Blue isn't available over in the US (yet), here in Europe it is on available on the MSport versions.

Note when I say MSport. My previous E46 was not a MSport, just a plain old Sport. Ok it had the ///M suspension ///M badges all over the place, ///M body kit etc. I think in the US you call it the ZHP or something similar.

Incidently when I ordered it I had a really poor choice of colours there were no extra colours just for the Sport. In fact it was the opposite and some of the standard colours were restricted. In effect it was a choice of Mystic Blue, Sapphire Black or Titan Silver unless you wanted to pay extra for individual.

Not sure if its on this thread or not (but somewhere on this site) apparently LeMan Blue is owned by BMW ///M (or whatever its called) which somehow reflects as to why the US has not got the colour yet.

Now one of my colleagues who has had quite a few ///M cars (he now has a Boxter S) told me last night that each year ///M release a new colour named after a famous racetrack, hence 'Estoril' Blue, 'Indianopolis' Red, 'LeMan' Blue etc etc, these are exculsive to the ///M range.

Now i think that is really cool and I get a warm glow that makes me feel that my humble 320i M Sport is that little more special!

But it also makes me think maybe the delay in the US may mean
a) The colour will come with the ///M3 (I think we first saw LeMan Blue over here on the press review M5's but i may be wrong)
b) The US may see the launch of a completly new ///M colour; Or probably more likely
c) you will get a named MSport variant so the colour will come with the body kit etc like here in Europe.

I don't know if the story about the ///M colours is true or a BMW urban myth so if any one knows more feel free to contradict me but its just what I heard but the naming of the colours and the fact the I've not seen the 'racetrack' colours on any colourcharts I've seen (LeMan Blue isn't even in the E90 brochure charts, just referenced in the page about the MSport model with a couple of pictures) adds some legitimacy. As I've never had a M5 or M3 etc brochure to see what exclusive colours are listed I can't confirm

I'd guess that the new M3 gets the "Interlagos Blue" colour that already exists in the current M5/M6 range.
