You'll notice my handle on here..I like blue cars. But I saw it in IOMG and it really has me thinking...

I love blue as well. This was going to be my first blue car... if you're saying that I have a strong feeling it's going to look amazing.

If it makes you feel a bit better, it's more toward a teal. If you've seen the F82 pics floating around in that color - it doesn't do it any justice.

In other words, it's a pretty bluish green.

No Dravit? Looks good under artificial light, but then has a purplish hue under sunlight.

I'm also on the fence, as 1st I wanted Dravit, after seeing it on a M340, went back to Tanzanite (current F83 has this color and is stunning). Too bad SPY is not metallic, as I like the 'bling' paint factor.

The G83 preferred colors will be the darker ones to blend in with the soft hard top cloth.

I'd go completely out of left field with an unusual color.

Saw the IoM green G80 at UDE last weekend. More like a light emerald or B R. green. Here's the swatch from the paint stick link.

I missed that Dravit Grey was offered on the car. I do need to see it in person.

I'm usually a blue guy. Love Interlagos, Lemans, San Marino, Avus.

Portimao is better than Estoril to my eyes, but too close.

I like M exclusive colors. Even better when that color is only offered on an M3/M4. Like Yes Marina, Silverstone, Austin Yellow.

When all is said and done - IOMG will go down in history the same way Leguna Seca did.

Dravit grey and Nardo both look great on the M340. Joe Achilles did a blog on one in Nardo- looked great with black trim and M-Perf parts.

Watch "2020 Nardo Grey BMW M340i Individual - 1 of 1 Car | Joe Achilles |" on YouTube


You can't go wrong with blues either. One of my favorite cars was my E92 in Lemans Blue.

The only color that could prevent me from doing a Fire Orange Individual is IoM green once i see it.

I wanted to do Fire Orange on my 2nd F80 but they ended production a little earlier than expected and i ended up taking a CS off the lot.

Brave man, fire orange is possibly the loudest factory color ever on a BMW. Sure will attract a lot of attention

Came standard on the not so standard E92 GTS if I recall right.

My recent separation from my wife has nothing to do with my color choice, how dare you even suggest that! lol.

Correct, the GTS and the Lime Rock edition both were Fire Orange.

I would go blue after the F8x only offering disappointing Yas as a standard blue the whole run. So good to see a traditional blue back.

And I'm actually upset that Yas isn't offered on this gen lol. To each his own.

My San Marino Blue CS bores me compared to my previous Yas Marina Blue.

Dravit is the best colour that BMW have released to date imo.

Anyone on here have a personal experience with Individual M4 where they had a custom interior? If so please if you wish PM me or direct me. Would love to see if alternatives to leather can be implemented for a G82...
