BMW didn't "reuse it"

BMW M3 Lime Rock Edition came in Fire Orange color
BMW M3 CS came in Lime Rock Grey metallic color

One is the name of a color, another is a name of a special edition
Thanks for clarifying! My vote is for the Fire Orange for whoever was thinking about the M4 individual

If I were to repaint my beloved Red Roadster....it would be Donington Gray Metallic.

After looking at all of the colors my favorite is Yas Marina Blue. There is something special about this color, it is a head turner every time I see one on the road. Also in my opinion it looks really different depending on the lighting and the color changes when viewed during the day vs. night.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Misano Blue on my G29 Z4 but if Yas Marina Blue had been offered for the 2022's I would have selected it in a flash!

The interior is the perfect partner to the SRG. I would drive with the top down as often as possible to show it off.

Maybe we can add Zandvoort Blue?
