Anyone else on here don't like the Melbourne Red color?

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of melbourne reds around town and the the color somehow never grew on me. It is my least favorite color on the M3. It is not a bad color by any means but just doesn't seem to do the car any justice.


Jokes aside, it seems like a deep dull color. I like hellrot on E9X a lot more.

OP: close, but you could have written:

Anyone else on here don't like the SG/Black, especially when on a 2009 E90 M3?

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

I think color is all a matter of personal preferences ... a salesman told me in the 90s silver was in now it seams to be white go figure.

Just to clarify things here. Black is technically not a colour, white is technically not a colour, and grey/silver is the colour of concrete/pavement. I think real colours for cars died about 20 years ago.

I didn't like it, until one day one passed me in the bright summer sun.

Thought it was incredible.

This is my favorite red on the forum, what's not to like? Hellrot is much more milky IMO. I'd prefer MR.

When these colors hit the sun, that's when the magic happens. AW, not so much.

I wasn't that into MR, but I got it because of the deal on the car.

It's actually a very deep red with a good coat of wax on the car. Looks beautiful and the metallic shines in the sunlight.

I love Alpine white, but there's something to be said about colors that pop in good lighting.

Of course, all this color talk is just plain stupid.
We're all in pre-school again analyzing why certain colors resemble poop or not.
