saw the bmw lemans blue upclose for the first time in good sun yesturday and it is awesome to say the least.

the lambo is nice but the pics look highly edited and might not be giving true color. but that first pic in the last post with the lambo would be a no brainer if you can get the color like that.

^^^ The Lambo looks great, but if it's anything close to the 370Z blue in real life, I would have to pass. The RSX-S actually came out with pretty nice shades of blue. Too lazy to post pics, but you all know what I'm taking about: the Arctic Blue Pearl (04 and older), and Electric Blue (I believe that's what it was called for the 05 models).

Well I would go with a Leguna Seca Blue or something or most of these colors won't be that far off from the stock 350z blue.

I like the older M3s, but the Lagune Seca seems a bit too light for me. Is the Lambo similar to the BMW?

its a bit darker blue, trust me if you want to go with a blue you will want it to be a big contrast to your cars original color.

my 350z was originally silver alloy and is now a bmw frozen grey and people often think its just silverstone with semi matte clear.

i feel like the lambo blue looks good simply because its a lambo. I bet if the rsx blue was on the lambo, it would look just as sick. The canvas makes the difference imo.
