    Thread: Had my new to me car for one day, and someone already vomited on it.

    1. 05-09-2012 12:28 PM #1
      Well, at least that's what most people say about the colour.



      I have wanted an E46 M3 in Phoenix Yellow ever since I saw the press/launch cars in this colour. People seem to either love it or hate it. I love it.

      1 owner since new in his fifties.
      All service records and receipts on or before schedule. he even kept his recei
      All inspections
      Never modified
      It's in incredible condition.
      110,000km
      Never winter driven. The underside of the car is spotless.

      This is my first RWD car, so I have some learning to do. It's also going to remain completely stock aside from a great set of tires. A far cry from my last car.

      The steering on the car is incredible. It feels fun to drive no matter what speed I'm going.

      Vomit?

      Looks like newborn poop.

      Nice car... I don't hate the color, nor do I love it. I much prefer that crazy shade of blue, however.

      love it and hate it at the same time, nice buy!

      Truly the worst color bmw ever used. In some light conditions it looks like baby ****, and at other times it looks like camry gold.

      Laguna Seca Blue? That by far was the best color offered, IMO. But I do like the "vomit" color

      never was a huge fan of that color but the E46 M3 is one of the best cars I've owned and I love it everytime I drive it. ENJOY IT!

      Manual or SMG though?

      If manual one free mod you may actually enjoy is the CDV delete. Firms up the clutch nicely and you can actually feel it a lot more than stock. One of the easy, free ones i did that I am glad I chose to do. And easily reversible!

      Good luck with the car, don't neglect it and it should treat you well!

      Overcast, bad white balance, bad exposure. Probably the culprit.

      Bound by the rules of TLC, I will state the obligatory "Lower It."

      I have never seen this shade in person. It can't be any worse than that ketchup mixed with mustard color that has been known to grace certain vehicles.

      In all seriousness though, sweet buy. I hope it serves you well and gives you nothing but great times.

      OP seems to be a good sport about people making fun of the color

      Isn't that one of the more rare colors? I can say I hardly see them on the road. Awesome car!

      The car is a manual. I'll look into the CDV Delete.

      Like all my cars I plan to be diligent about doing maintenance on, or before, scheduled dates.

      Thanks for the comments guys! As evidenced by this thread its pretty polarizing. Like all metalic colours it looks great in the sun. I'll post up some sun shots this weekend after I get a chance to detail it. Should look amazing after a full 3 stage polish!

      These cars look about 10,000% better with the CSL wheels on them. The stock 19's are nice but the 18's are very meh.
