If Iím not mistaken our good friend GOLFFRR had this color on his E92M3! Looks epic on the E9X platform and looks absolutely killer on the G8X!

PB and Interlagos are the others here.

LeMans Blue will always be near and dear to my 💙 a classic blue. Had it on my 335is paired with Saddle Brown interior, it was just amazing! Peanut butter, jelly type of combo. But I still think SMB the GOAT 🐐 blue.

Agree with everything you said.
Here is my former manual 335is, but my SMB M3CS is just next level.

I thought he had a Monte Carlo blue? Could be wrong, been a while.

Also, and this is crazy, just yesterday I had a thought in my head wondering what this would look like on a G8X. And here one is.

San Marino and Marina Bay dominate the blues IMO

Problem with Lemans that it was a standard color on the e92, so it will always be a tough pill to swallow to pay the individual premium for it on an M car. Plus as mentioned above SMB will always be the GOAT of blues, followed by Interlagos blue and Marina Bay.

Great minds think alike! I had a '12 335is 6MT and a '11 335is DCT both were baby M's, N54 beasts! My '11 had 480 whp, 480 wtq on stock turbos running e60 with an Quaife LSD. sorely missed.

As you already saw my beloved '11 LMB 335is posted above and my current heartthrob '18 SMB M3 CS posted below.

They're so damn close! But SMB takes the slight edge, imo. That purp in SMB hits diff. I know a guy who paid the $5k for Individual SMB over the Free standard MBB on a M5 comp lci.. because ofc, SMB is worth every penny! Lol.

Standard or not, LMB will be one of the nicest classic, proper blues BMW has ever produced.

Top BMW Blues:
1. San Marino 🐐💙💦
(Marina)
2. LeMans
(Avus)
3. Interlagos
(Tanz)

Honorable mentions:
Monte Carlo
Estoril (e36 only)

I had Tanzanite Blue on my first F82 M4 (ED) and I thought it was BMW's best blue. Then I ordered my second F82 M4 in LeMans Blue and I definitely prefer LeMans. (This is reinforced everyday when I compare it to my wife's Tanzanite M550!)

Looks pimp. I always have a hard time deciding between LMB or SMB. Two best blues IMO.

I fell in love with SMB ever since the F80 M3 CS came out. It just worked so well with that color.
