First Laguna Seca of the E9x M3 series were seen last year. It all began with an M3 Sedan featuring the Laguna Seca Individual color that came with a hefty price: $5,000. As we learned in the past, BMW only allows small number of M3’s to be custom painted every year.

The second M3 to show up on our radar was a Coupe model, picked up by another U.S. based customer for the same price tag as the previous sedan. Both cars were directly approved by BMW AG and the owners were proud to be one of the few people in the world to sport this gorgeous blue color on their new M3s.

Well, the Laguna Seca family has a new member today, but this time, across the ocean, all the way from Eastern Europe. A member of M5board posted some photos of the a gorgeous Laguna Seca painted M3 Sedan that was delivered to his dealership and once again, the WOW factor is back in our vocabulary.

Now the question some of you might be asking: is it really worth the $5,000 just to be special? Well, if money is no issue, absolutely, Laguna Seca is one of our top favorite colors on a BMW, along with Le Mans Blue.

    you could paint m3 brown or pink and these colors would look great, because every color on m3 does ;-)

  • Hantra

    If I was paying $5k for a paint job, I would need utmost assurance that there would be none of that typical BMW orange peel. I’d like to see some close-up pics just to judge that.

  • viper

    I dont like it , the interior looks plastic and the color is out of date , it made the car look even worse

  • E92-Toronto

    I like this color since E46 M3

    “As we learned in the past, BMW only allows small number of M3’s to be custom painted every year.”

    This is NOT true. BMW makes as many custom painted cars as people order them (at least for the German market).
    You just ask the guys at Individual/M GmbH nicely and they paint it in every colour you can imagine.

    I’m having trouble determining if I like it. In some of the pictures it looks great, but then some of the pictures make it look really light. This is a color that I’d have to see in person to know whether I really like it.

      You’ve never seen LSB before on a E46 M3? It’s brilliant IMO.

  • Hydrogen

    LSB is a great color! There are a couple inaccuracies in this story. The earlier articles concerning the first and second LSB M3s are both about the same E92 M3 (the vehicle in the second article). The picture in the first article is fake. It’s a photoshop; the original vehicle is an MR E93 M3.

    LSB ~ FRB (French Racing Blue). Surprised VW/Audi isn’t in a dither with BMW for still using what is essentially an historical Bugatti Blue – but it is gorgeous!

  • Saleem

    She’s gorgeous.
