Hmm, i like LSB on some m3's. But this is too sharp of a car to have that soft of a color. It might have some potential modded! But stock isn't doing it for me.

That color looks great on that car! Can't forget this awesome oxford Green M6 we got in!

It's a beautiful color no doubt. Like others have said it doesn't seem to work well, IMO as a first impression.

The M6 has lines and a shape that's more sleek then aggressive. I think a bolder red color counters that and adds back some aggressiveness that its missing.

Big cars don't look good in LSB.

When the car comes off the truck, the tow hook covers, battery charge sheet, manuals, second window sticker, and second key fab are in the glove box. Once the car is prep by the service department all that good stuff is put where it need to be. As for the brake its the standard M blue its just the angle you are looking at.

Such a subdued color for so fast a car.

It has a very Aston Martin esque feel to it.

I really like both of these M6 colors.

The LSB needs a rear CF spoiler for some contrast on the "tush" end. That painted one just ain't cutting it for me.

Looks like something Papa Smurf would drive. I know, I know, easy joke, but serious that thing looks a bit ostentatious.

Now Oxford Green with that exact interior.... yum.

I think as a project or show car, it works but I don't think I would pick that color if it was a DD. Also, don't think it would work too well outside of places like California or Florida where it gets gloomy/dark.

Yup. That was the first thing I thought when I saw this pic! Doesn't look as nice on a big car...E46 all the way.
