So they're naming the color after my home town? Long Beach, CA WOOT!

I have front-row seats on the straightaway on the LBGP circuit from my condo ^_^

Looks very identical to Le Mans Blue! One of my favorite BMW Blue's.

BMW really screwed up with the recent reds and blues. As far as I am concerned these 3 colors should always be offered with any M model

Oxford Green, Interlagos Blue and Imola Red.

Had Imola red on a 2000 m roadster and inter blue on a 2006 m coupe. Loved those cars and the colors, especially when the roadster had two tone red and black interior.

I suppose this should end the speculation on the blue color for the M2.

I like it a lot, thanks for sharing.

Given the choice, I would prefer Interlagos over just about anything

[quote=ddk632;16578813]Was there more than one color of X4 concept?

I saw this and took some photos in LA of the X4 Concept... It is much more baby blue then the photo in the OP.

Same color? (Does not look the same but not sure if OP color hue is heavily edited or not).


BMW X4 Concept by ddk632, on Flickr[/QUOTE

It is the same color.I posted this pic of Long Beach Blue on the X4 concept in another thread.It is probably just different lighting,making it look darker in the pic that SCOTT26 posted.

Thanks for the information Scott26 and Dve3431 .

It's always my pleasure to talk about the colors of BMW and especially the blues.

Every time something new BMW offers world is something very interesting because they always surprise us. In this case it is gratifying to see the new Long Beach Blue Metallic looks like a very close halftone blue Le Mans Blue and Monte Carlo Blue, but with different mixtures of pigments.
I think it's more elegant than sporty.

In another case talking about gray colors, you can see on the list for next X5M a new painting called "Donington Grey" this is a mystery and do not even know, but hopefully it will be a different tone to the rest of the 6 tones gray BMW currently offers.

I'm anxious to see these 2 colors on the streets with natural sunlight.

Ok, thanks, Nantucket.

Under the lighting that I saw it, this color was much closer to YMB than MCB. It's a nice color but definitely not for everyone.

I'm pretty sure Newport should be red and Laguna Beach can be a rainbow.

Here are some pics of the X4 Concept seen at the Welt earlier this year. The blue color is a lot lighter than LeMans Blue.
