Anyone else considering an Individual Yas Marina Blue G8x?

Who else plans on getting an Individual Yas Marina Blue G8x? My M3 CS is San Marino Blue and while I like the color, I miss my old YMB 6MT very much. Every time I see a YMB on the road I smile.

We all agree the grilles are the selling point and the strength of the upcoming model, and I think YMB would accent them well.

Not me, Yas was a horrid colour when it was free. I’d never pay 5k for it.


Mexico is what yas should have been.

I have an F82 DCT in Yas Marina with Silverstone and love the combination. The subtle pearl in bright sun is superb. Would consider getting it on a G82, as the proposed colour palette Iíve seen so far looks a bit dull and mostly regular G22 colours.

Man I'm gonna maybe have to put my flame suit on but I think Yas was the worst color offered. When I see it on the road I always cringe.

To each is own. It certainly sold well. You drive a black car and presumably like it.

I was always told the last car you'll ever ride in is black, try and avoid them before that....if you get my meaning.

Funny I originally wanted Mineral Grey but got a good deal on my black one. I think black cars when they are clean are the meanest out there but I will say this...I most likely will never get a black car again...what PITA to maintain.

Tell me about it. I had a black S4 back in the day because it was the only one I could get in 6MT. Hated the color. I think San Marino Blue is kinda boring, just to give you some perspective.

For the G80, I am considering YMB, Fire Orange, Twilight Purple, and Java Green.

I've had YMB for the the past 4 years, love it and get a ton of compliments on it, but I'll spend that $5k on something more useful.

Maybe that's the strategy. Along with the launch, they'll offer a M Performance Parts front bumper that will have a normal grill. Just charge us another $5K for it.

YMB has always been kind of meh to me. I liked it somehow when the car came out but there are so many better colors imho like Mineral White, Sakhir Orange and SilverstoneII in the standard ones. Black never again for me, I used to have many black cars. Mineral Grey I think is the dullest color of them all, especially on the M4 the car looks almost like a standard 4-series Coupe.
I have now a Speed Yellow car, I wasn't too fond on it but as it was a good price and was almost fully loaded, I went for it. Now I love the color. So you never know surely, I might like YMB on the new G80/82
