Greetings!

From another Blue over red owner... Back in the day I was mocked for my color combo, glad to see the world has become more accepting!

The Imola with the blue tinted red, just looks so right in person with the Blue paint. Congrats on your purchase!

I love the IB/IR combo. I wish LSB/IR looked as good. Last time one of those came up for sale, it got eviscerated in the comments. I just love bold, colored interiors.

I also have the same Kyosho model! Mine is Phoenix Yellow/black with the OE 18s. I didn't know they offered it with ZCPs! I bought mine from a friend reducing his collection of 1:18 scale model cars for $50 about 2 months before I ended up looking for and buying my LSB.

Thanks - I think the green-ish tint that comes up in LSB looks odd with IR unfortunately. LSB is a beautiful color in its own right though.

Great model, I have one of the PY ones as well - they were released earlier than the updated models with the ZCP wheels. Crazy good deal you got, they usually go for around $200 on eBay. Unfortunately Kyosho never made an LSB coupe, although I do have an LSB/LSB convertible from them. AUTOart made an LSB I think, but the model isn't as nice looking.

If the collector market didn't put a premium on these things I'd consider sending it to a body shop to be completely repainted, but it's nice enough on its own.

Think I will be trying Dr Color Chip on my car soon - your car looks absolutely beautiful. Still think Estoril is the best blue BMW has ever made.

Took my IB for a photoshoot, bunch of pics here.

Beforehand I replaced the hood vent, fender grilles, sidemarkers, M3 badges on trunk and valve cover, windshield cowl and front bumper grille. Really freshened up the exterior. I'd still like to replace kidneys, headlight lenses and fog lights, then I'll consider the exterior done.

Interlagos is a great color too! Love what you're doing to the car.

Looks Fantastic! It's a toss up between estoril and IB in my opinion. I'm biased though as I had an E46 in IB and just bought an E90 comp in IB.

Seeing as how plastics are the only imperfect parts of my IB ZCP I can really appreciate that photo shoot and the car's quality. Looks amazing.
