Hello all,

I have formally requested the re-introduction of Laguna Seca Blue as a color on the '09 year line-up for a select number of vehicles (of BMW's choice), as well as the E92 M3. It is without a doubt one of the nicest colors previously available for the E46 M3, and even if one did not particularly have the taste for it, there was no denying its presence. It has ever since become a rarity, after its discontinuation in 2004-2005. Here are some pictures to illustrate the color:


Taken from 'http://www.heitz.us/My_Car.htm'.

For this cause, I have created a petition addressed to Frank-Peter Arndt, the head of production @ BMW Group. There is no way this will ever make any impact if people do not sign. With enough participation, the petition can make a difference. For this, I ask you, the BMW enthusiast, to sign this petition so that you, or others like you, can enjoy this color on their future car. I also ask you to please forward this link to anyone that you may know of that would support this request.

I would really appreciate this from all of you. I do believe that you and I, as loyal BMW owners and/or enthusiasts, can make a difference.

Here is the link: http://www.petitiononline.com/lsbreint/petition.html


I would also request for you to join my Facebook or MySpace groups that I have created for this petition located below:

Please invite your FRIENDS!

The petition asks you for a name and an email. The name is publicly displayed, as is evident, but the email is displayed at your discretion and I assure you that I will never know of it. It is just there so that a confirmation can be sent to you after you sign, confirming that you have signed, and not requiring you to click anything.

Definetly agreed! Estortil blue instead of Smurf blue :trophy_bronze:

However Estoril blue is apparantly hazardous to the envorviroment so BMW have problems in getting Estoril to prouction again.


Id sign if it was estoril blue. IMHO the best blue ever made.

Jerez Black Metallic is a very subtle shade of blue. IMHO that's the best blue BMW have made to date, it has shades of Carbon Black and Techno Violet depending on ambient light.

Jerez Black looks like Carbon black, very nice. I was surprised that the Sparkling Graphite was removed from USA; that was stunning.

I'm going to have my car valeted and prepared by a professional in a couple of weeks. He tends to use synthetic sealants (Trade Autoglym and others). It is fantastic - all it needs is a jet wash and shampoo followed by a final rinse using filtered water to look better than the showroom finish. He completely prepares the paint first with a random orbital polisher to remove any swirl marks before applying two layers of polish, plus a third layer 24-48 hours later.

It only needs re-doing every 12 months. I'll get him to take some photos - hopefully the sun will be shining - if not I'll get him to take photos under flourescent lights.

So am I :blink:

Ashok, do you know what is the price difference between standard Individual colors (as listed on BMW webpage) and out-of-current-range individual colors (e.g. this Laguna Seca Blue)?
§5000 was the additional cost for LSB on the car at the pics below. Guess that's what it takes then...
