Also, the car really was darker in person than those pictures show, not by much, but definitely darker.


US informational brochure. These pictures certainly look like a metallic blue. Are you sure the car was Laguna Seca Blue? It also looks darker and richer than a lot of the other pictures I've seen of LSB. If this is in fact LSB, it's not as bad a color as I originally thought. Of course, it could look entirely different outside, in natural light.

Maybe Imola Red will come through as a Metallic Color as well! Now THAT would be my FIRST choice!

Well, I finally saw the car that I gave up for my Estoril E36, and I think it is a stunner no matter what the color. I tried to take as many photos of it from varying angles and distances, but the LSB always seems to look the same no matter what I try. One note, though, was that LSB was darker than the photos show, and so metallic that no two panels were showing the same color under the lights. The show car had wood trim, and that's about all I remember ;)

I don't think this will be anything new for most of you, but there are other areas of note. -the other cars were damn cool, and then on the way home a cool Z8 driver was kind enough to show his car off while we snapped a few photos and even a video. What a cool day.
