I've seen an 08 sedan drive around downtown Seattle. Not sure if it's a member though.

Look at the bright side at least you'll stand out especially at meets.

MR is a great color, I'm kind of surprised myself... thought there would be more.

Don't worry, I've seen it and it looks beautiful. Just because everyone in Seattle is conservative, doesn't mean you need to be. The M3 is a subtle extroverted car and deserves a bright color.

In the long run, the bright cars sell quicker especially if they are rare!

Since E9X M3 has been unveiled I have only seen TWO Melbourne Red M3s in the puget sound area.

First: 2008 E90 M3 MR with Blk Interior in Capitol Hill (not far from where the old BMW of Seattle was) I saw this car sometime in Early 2009. Hot asian girl was driving it!

Second: sometime in Mid 2010, I saw a MR E92 Coupe with light tints driving EB on I-90. Older dude rollin it.

That's it! and I usually remember every M3 I've ever seen around here, so I know I've never seen more than the two described above...

Haven't seen any in Portland, either. I wouldn't worry. Nice & almost unique color. Interior color options are somewhat limited with it, though, IMO.

Saw one at the Oregon CCA and Hooked on Driving track day a week or so ago. Looked awesome in the bright sunshine. Black interior, which is the best choice IMHO...

ZCP wheels looked nice on Red as well. Good luck!
