Default Can anyone confirm which color this is....

There were three or for color blues available which were fairly close in color: Mystic Blue, Topaz Blue and Interlagos Blue. Then there's also Carbon Black, which is a super dark blue.

I really love the color of this M3, but pics are in rain and wondering if anyone can help me determine the what color it is?





It's unfortunately been sold, but would like to find one this color.
Just need to know what color I'm looking for.

That looks like mystic to me. Topaz is a bit brighter (and I think discontinued after 02 or 03? that car has a sharkfin so it has to be at least an 04). Interlagos was a ZCP only color, so it wouldn't have those wheels.

Definitely Mystic. Topaz was lighter (much closer to Avus) and was replaced by Mystic for the 03.5 LCI refresh - denoted by the facelift tail lights and trunk handle that car has.

Orient would have been an Individual, but has purple hues more similar to Interlagos (and that car is not a ZCP as evidenced by the style 67's and non-drilled rotors).
