These photos of F30 look more becoming to the car becos it looks dimmer, not as bright as that on E46. But who knows if it is the same in real life?

I was also unsure about the color shortly I placed the order. I kept looking at many pics on the internet and saw an E46 once on the road...and I thought I made a mistake in getting LSB. But now...I'm glad I kept my color choice. This is one color very difficult to capture in pics with any camera...have to see it in person to fully appreciate it.

The MSRP was $63,300 Canadian Dollars (approx. $59K USD today) but I got it for less. We pay a lot more for everything in general than our friends south of the border. It sucks...but it's reality here.

Does your paint decal in the engine bay say Laguna Seca Blue Individual?

  • Front Diffuser (body color)
  • Rear Diffuser (body color)
  • M Side Skirts
  • M Power Kit
  • M Performance Exhaust
  • Individual Piano Black interior trim
  • Individual Exterior Paint - Laguna Seca Blue
  • Rear Lip Spoiler


I finally got some time to take some more pics and drive this beast for a few more miles. I only got 120 miles on the clock since I picked it up two weeks ago. It was cloudy yesterday so I will be updating this thread over the next few months as I get some mods and take more pics on sunny days. The beautiful thing about this color is that it literally changes depending on light conditions. It's a real challenge to capture the true shade of LSB with any camera.

Enjoy!

Hey everyone, I wanted to share a couple of pics of my new LSB M Performance Limited Edition I picked up on Saturday after almost 6 months of waiting. I must say...I'm in love again with my car and love all the attention and compliments I'm getting. The color is absolutely amazing and pics don't do it justice at all. You must see it in person to fully appreciate it. I will do a proper shoot when I find some time. In the meantime, here are a couple of iPhone pics. Enjoy!

WOW, Laguna Seca Blue is amazing. I have not seen this color blue before. Hopefully they will be offering it when my lease runs out in 3 years, although I really love Midnight Metallic blue my my new 4 series, this would be my next pick with the M rather then Estoiral blue that already has been done

May I ask what are the other variations in color change depending on the light?

Best of Luck, looks mean awesome and pretty all at the same time

You're lucky for sure, but why is that really? Is it that u dont pay any taxes? I mean it's not like your prices are somehow equivalent to ours, cause the dollar is lower than ever so you simply just get them cheaper still

I think it's the import taxes that make the difference. I'll let an economist answer that for you.

Hmm I hear you, but we have the same prices all over europe including Germany so there's gotta be some other tax that's making the difference.. man, any economists in da hauuus??

So, this colour of Laguna Sea blue is ONLY offered as "individual" order for the last gen e9x and f30, right? That's why it is even rarer than E46 M3 in this colour. Love your combo in terms of colour including the rim, brake, etc. Good job!!

Great color! There are some angles, where the shade of blue is really gorgeous. Truly individual...

I like what BMW Ca is doing with the special editions...I have an E90 that got the same treatment (I guess that's how it started) - oyster, piano black and carbon leather inside, Ruby Black outside, PPK and PE....and while I love the E90 a tad more (just because it's my baby), yours is taking it to another level.

Very, very nice, enjoy in good health!

The only thing that really bugs me is that the wheel center caps aren't lined up with the M on the wheel...

Other than that it is beautiful
