Will Shaw, a Client Advisor at Long Beach BMW, is one lucky guy. He is one of the few people that were granted permission to get a BMW M3 in the unique Laguna Seca Blue color. As we learned in the past, BMW only allows small number of M3’s to be custom painted every year. Will was told that for the 2009 production year, there are under five units worldwide that will receive a custom paint job.

Of course, the car comes with a hefty price and the Laguna Seca paint will set you back another $5,000. Is it worth it? Well, If you have the extra cash and would like to be “different”, special, then YES, absolutely. The Laguna Seca Blue was one of the most popular colors on the M3’s and I have been drooling over it each time I would see one.

If the money is not an issue, Will Shaw is the man to talk to to.

Looking forward to more LSB photos and I hope Long Beach BMW will share them with us when they get the M3.

    Nice! I can’t wait for more pics of this one.

  • Dustin

    Looks like a convertible. I always loved that color and it looks great

  • Eric

    Never really like smurf blue…

  • Sba

    AHAHAH 5000$?!?!?

    OMG dude I’d paint it by myself or not at a bmw dealer for less than 5k$.

    That’s crazy…

  • Hantra

    @Sba – Uhhhh. . . This is a factory LSB paintjob. Although I recognize the faults, and the horrible orangepeel coming out of BMW now, there is no way you would get a paintjob as nice as factory for anywhere near $5K.

  • Eric

    Yeah, and a respray kills resale value.. bigtime. But then again, so does driving a brand new car off the lot and that doesn’t stop people from doing it.

  • Horatiu B.

    @Sba: Yeah, but for some reason the factory paint is always better. I’ve seen the painting process and it’s quite complex and hard to replicate independently.

  • Hantra

    @Horatiu – Two reasons. One are robots. You can’t get a robot paintjob after the factory. Two is the high temp bake. You can’t do that after you get plastic, leather, glass, etc in the car.

    I fully agree, so I will take a factory paint job over the other one any day. Or you can use that crazy tape technique :)

    I don’t know why you keep this picture posted. It’s fake. This is a photoshop of a Melbourne Red M3 convertible.
