Yeah, that's a good example of something I would need to see IRL. I like that it's not a flashy green but the shade need to be seen properly since from the pictures I'm kind of on the probably not side of the fence.
The GT3 rolled by me on a sunny day and I couldn't stop staring at the green. I love Porsche's Chalk Gray too.

Portimao? Eww.

They should've rolled out SMB and called it a day.

A couple new colors have been added to the BMW Individual Manufaktur Visualizer:

Light Red
Ägäisch Blue (which I'm really liking and now strongly considering)

Will frozen portimao look similar to the frozen blue on the F8X cs?

Should be similar, the frozen dark blue of the cs look to have some more purple in it and be one or two shades darker in these pictures. I think frozen Portimao will look nice but be brighter than the cs.

I'm really wondering what the M Sport Seats are going to be like in this. I had no issues with the seats in either of my F80s but I can't stand the seats in my X4M Comp. They look great and feel good to the touch the butt part of the seat is way too narrow making it very uncomfortable. I'm 6'1" 200 Lbs so its not like Im some huge dude, and many others have shared the same complaints.

I have less than 5,000 miles on the X4M but I can't connect with it and already wanna trade it in. So Im thinking I would rather deal with the hideous grill on a new M3 than stick with this thing.... unless the G80 has the same seats as the X3/4M

Not sure, but I'd guess the G80/82 will have the same X3/4M seats.

They are similar in design for sure unless a buyer opts for the race buckets.

I’d expect the uptake on the bucket seats to be quite high. They will make the whole driving experience seem more dramatic and exotic.

There’s something about proper seats in a car that can hugely change the experience!

Agreed. I will be ordering the race buckets IF they are made available on the U.S. market.

They can be the same design as long as the butt part is wider and you can drive with your left foot on the foot rest without wrecking your thighs. They probably only need about 1" more or to just be whatever size was in the F80.

I'm surprised BMW isn't offering a unique blue that's exclusive to M's. I know they have Portimao Blue and Tanzanite Blue, but they are both offered in the G20.

BMW Individual Grey Black paint seems rather nice. Wonder if it would be available on the new M3/M4

That's the exact color that I want no questions asked, but I love nardo so I will settle for Brooklyn grey without hesitation.

Thanks, that LSB looks way off in that sample, maybe it's that dark in total shade?

At least on my phone screen?

It's still IoM green for me

Thought I would end up with a tanzanite blue G80 but I'm almost tempted to go with the Isle of Man green color, though I haven't seen the true color in person yet. I knew I'd love this car as I was ready for change from the F30/F80 series (don't crucify me) 😂 I'm ready for this new M3❗️
