Wow that’s a lot of passion there! If it turns out to be as nice as it seems I might just take your advice here since it really is no big deal. I’m currently in an AW car after all

Additional M3 colors:
Exterior: Frozen Brilliant White, Frozen Portimao Blue, Oxide Gray
Interior: Silverstone/Black

The wheels in the latest photos are likely not the production color, production wheels will be either bi-color or orbit gray.

Oxide gray, huh? I wonder if that is the color in the leaked grill photo, or if that is just Dravit.

I'm not sure because the color in the leak looks similar to Nardo, and Dravit seems to have other color hues, as does Oxide. I'm perplexed!

Donnington is nice but I definitely prefer Silverstone and Hockenheim Silver to it. This Oxide Gray looks a little more flat than DG. I guess I'll have to see how it looks on the G80.

The human head is not flat, perhaps some people's are, so why are headrests hard, flat and extremely uncomfortable when resting your head on them after a long day. Headrests need to be more ergonomic and concave to cradle you spherical head. And I'm not talking about adding more padding, I mean overall shape.
They're looking like gaming seats

I agree also.

I personally love a car in white for a number reasons including easy care. If there is a lot of carbon fiber offered that's a great combo with AW. Match it up with two tone black and gray interior and you have a winner even if it is a "subdued" color.

With that said I would like to see some shades of Silver too.

The LRG on the CS is stunning imho. If I get another F80, or move into an F90, that's on the short list

São Paulo Yellow is looking very similar to Birch Green. I'd like to see both colors together in person.

Wow Birch Green looks pretty interesting. Kind of reminds me of Toyota's lime green:

I saw a Dravit Gray 5 Series today and it looked really good in the sun. I want to see a G8X in that color.

Sau Paolo looks like Ford Grabber Lime to me. It's up there on the bold chart.

I know myself when it comes to yellow. Can look nice in the showroom on some cars and even IRL as something different but I quickly get tired of them. That said there was a Dakar yellow F80 full of cf. pieces at my gym that I always thought looked cool. Wouldn’t like it everyday though and São Paulo looks to extreme even for a quick glance...
