Metallic - Black sapphire
Black has always suited the M3 and this is true of the latest version as well. It looks very stealthy in metallic Black sapphire thanks to the dark exterior detailing, perfectly suiting the ultra-sporty nature of this M car. It won’t need constant washing to look good either, and should be popular on the second-hand market.
Metallic - Brooklyn grey
Grey is always a popular colour and not only does Brooklyn grey look good on the M3, it’s also a no-cost option. There are more exciting colours to pick from, but this one’s great for those who prefer a more subdued look for their performance car while ensuring strong demand come sale time.
All the information you need on the BMW M3.
Metallic - Isle of Man green
The Isle of Man conjures up images of superbikes racing down winding roads at breakneck speeds. Isle of Man green on the M3 doesn’t quite do the same thing, but it does give the four-door saloon a rather sporty demeanour. It won’t show up dirt too easily, but you may find that not many second-hand car buyers will be as keen on a green car as you are.
Metallic - Portimao blue
Blue is always a winner when it comes to residual values, and the vibrant Portimao blue looks great on the M3. It is less fussy to keep clean than lighter colours and best of all it’s a no-cost option.
Metallic - Skyscraper grey
Skyscraper grey has a slightly darker hue than Brooklyn grey, it too will do well on the second-hand market. That said, there are plenty more adventurous colours on offer here, so take a look at them as well before committing.
Metallic - Toronto Red
Toronto red is the sort of colour that is as loud as your exhaust note. It definitely looks sporty, but may not be all that popular on the used car market. Keeping it clean will require a lot of effort, but it rewards you with a sparkly metallic finish that will definitely have heads turning.
Solid - Alpine white
The default choice for many, Alpine white does a good job of highlighting the muscular bodywork of the M3 and it contrasts nicely with the black exterior trim. Dirt and mud will be easy to spot on such a light hue, so be prepared to get the hose out on a regular basis if you want to keep it looking at its best.
Solid - Sao Paulo yellow
The only other solid paint finish available for the M3, Sao Paulo yellow is quite possibly the most eye-catching paint job you can spec. It suits the sporty M3 well, but will require constant cleaning and may not be a big hit with used car buyers.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Aventurine red lll
This is a darker and more sophisticated shade of red than the shouty Toronto red option, and as such it makes the M3 seem more like a laid-back grand tourer than the fiery sporty saloon that it is. It certainly has its appeal, though, especially for those wanting a more understated look.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Dravit grey
Dravit grey is more like an off-black thanks to its very dark hue. The metallic sparkles give it a nice shine in bright light, and it shouldn’t show up dirt and road muck all that readily. A good but pricy choice.
BMW Individual metallic paint - Tanzanite blue
A dark blue paint job is always a good idea on a BMW and the M3 looks great in Tanzanite blue. It is not an ostentatious colour, but it shows off the M3’s lines to great effect and will definitely get you noticed. Especially if you spec it in conjunction with the Ivory White interior.
Individual paint - Frozen Orange II
The satin-ish, matte-like finish to this colour really gives the M3 a unique look. You'll rarely see this shade on an M3, making it a bold choice for resale value – but if you forget about that it's a fantastic choice that will stand out from the crowd.
Individual paint - Frozen Portimao blue
The matte sheen on this paint colour looks especially good on the curves and creases of the M3. Like all the Frozen finishes it is one of the priciest options, but it certainly gives the car a distinctive look.
Individual paint - Frozen black
Frozen Black is perfect if you like the stealthy look of a black car but want to put a unique spin on it. The matte-effect finish can look a little odd in some lights but it certainly adds character.
Individual paint - Frozen dark grey
Frozen Dark Grey is an excellent choice for the M3, because it works well with the black details on the car – and particularly pops next to black alloy wheels.
Individual paint - Frozen pure grey metallic
Yet another shade of grey, but you really can't go wrong with this colour on an M3. It's not the most exciting choice, but it looks good, and that's what's important, right?
BMW Individual special paint - Frozen Brilliant white
The priciest colour you can have on your M3 is white. But not just any white. Frozen brilliant white looks cooler than any solid or metallic white you’ve seen before thanks to its matte-like finish. It will need more cleaning than darker hues, but it will definitely get you noticed.
