i have to go with LB ,EB and Imperial blue in that order.

Nice pics and cars though.
You're right, this thread has actually been posted since the fall...if you look back to the beginning. Way too cold and snowy now

Love Blue Colors for BMW's. Le Man's Blue is just my preferred shade and if it was a choice for my 328i M-Sport I would have preferred it but also the Estoril Blue II looks fantastic!! Best color by far for me looking at all the colors that were available for the F30 also the fact that can be purchased only with an M-Sport you will not see many around like for example the alpine white which is everywhere!!! Nice white but just too common and paying a premium for an M-Sport pack better be esclusive!!

Le Mans Blue F10 535i M Sport

Well, I would have to agree that Le Mans Blue looks the best of the three ! Thanks for posting a great side by side comparison.

Great pics! I love BMWs in blue. The imperial blue looks amazing in my opinion. It's a stunning color in that garage lighting... it looks so classy but still sporty and luxurious. I might have to go for that combo Lux line next car!

Wow - nice pictures. It's hard to believe the two F30s are the same car. I prefer the M Sport F30, but they are all nice.

Photos taken in the Columbus area ... Gahanna/Creekside and at Blendon Woods Metro Park. Enjoy!
I can't believe I'm just now seeing this. I grew up in Gahanna and spent lots of time playing disc golf at Blendon Woods. I live close to downtown now. My EBII F31 is on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic. Let me know if you ever want to take more pictures!

Le Mans blue any day. Looks good on big and small cars, alike. Somewhere in the middle and perfect balance of luxury, and sporty elegance :
