For me, I prefer this color on a "smaller" car (meaning the m3, i.e. the individual e92 that's been seen on this forum). I am not sure why, I guess the sporty nature of the color and being as it started with the e46. That being said, it does look very nice sir. Congrats and enjoy that (to quote Top Gear) "epic" car!

Congrats, very unique for sure.
How does LSB compare to the F80 YMB? They look similar in pictures although the LSB may be a tad deeper / richer / less baby blue.
Is that consistent with real life?

I own an LSB E46 M3... the original car the color came on. I love the color.

I have not seen YMB in person yet. YMB looks lighter to me in pictures. But from what I've read online, one big difference is that YMB is metallic. LSB is not metallic. Just a staight, solid blue with no sparkling.

I have seen Santorini Blue in person on an E90 M3. SB is also lighter than LSB. In evening light I feel that LSB has a slight tinge of teal.
