I like imola. First of all, it was only available on ///M cars and the E46 ZHP package (without special ordering).

What I would like more is a metallic red color similar to imola.

Rumor has it they're bring Imola Red and Lemans Blue to European 550 Sports. I wish I had an IR car.

IR was available on the e53 X5 4.8is and it is beautiful. Maybe they'll bring back that color if they ever make an ///M version of the X5.

Red cars are hot, but the Melbourne red on the E92 M3 isnt as impressive.
