Many of you might recall the beautiful Laguna Seca color that “broke” many hearts back in the E46 M3 times, but not many of you, if none, can recall seeing an E90 or E92 M3 in the beautiful blue Laguna Seca. Back in August, we reported that Will Shaw, a Client Advisor at Long Beach BMW has ordered one of the first E92 M3 Laguna Seca for the US.
The story starts with Will inquiring at BMW AG about the possibility of getting the M3 Coupe custom painted and the wait for the approval, which came a few weeks later.
Paperwork was filed and $5,000 later, Will’s dealership will become the proud owner, at least temporary, of a brand new 2009 BMW M3 Coupe customly painted. Within two hours of posting his success story on Bimmerpost, a customer from Maryland decided to be one, if not the only, owner of a 2009 Laguna Seca M3 Coupe. Adding a few more options to the car and picking up the M3 at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, are completing a successful story and it show that BMW can be very accommodating as well.
We were asked not to reveal the owner’s name, but I would still like to thank him for taking the time to send us some photos.
Now, before I will let you drool over it, what do you think, was the $5,000 well spent?
