I want to see it in person before I make a decision, but I generally don't like metallic paints. I think a brighter red will look better with the CF roof panel. Melbourne just looks muddy to me when there isn't much sunlight hitting it. Hopefully that isn't the case in real life.

to be honest i did not find time the last weeks to make pictures..there had been a lot new pics of mr in this forum so i thought everybody should be happy now... but anyway..here are some pics from my car shot at the ring ...
car is very nice, driving more easy than z4m, engine more punch and great sound 3-3,5k rev and 7800-8400...but still not quite that direct on throttle response like the old flat 6....

overall i just had the first miles on summer tyres ps2..car feels good and is very fast on the ring... will test the cup+ tyres when it gets warmer..

i have the drivers package that officially allows 280 km/h... the car does 310 km/h on the speedo...stops at about 7800 revs...

think everyone of you will like it whenever you have it!

cheers,

markus

Very nice & thx for the pics! Seeing your pics makes my decision even harder. It's like torn between 2 lovers! My brain says get SSII (w/Fox red leather & carbon leather trim) since it shows off the lines better & resale value will probably be higher but my heart says get MR (w/black leather & brushed aluminum trim) since I've never had a red car & not that many M3 owners will have this color. Decisions, decisions...

Now that you've had it for awhile, are you glad you got MR or does a part of you regret getting this color? When the sun hits it, is it true there's a slight hint/shimmer of metallic orange in it from different angles? Thx so much!

BTW, I'm so jealous u get to track on the ring'

i had a black m3e46 then a white z4mqp now i wanted sth different..

in my opinion, the red is very very good, but still not perfect, silver looks a bit boring, and white you see everywhere...the colour decision is not easy. still i am very happy with my choice!!

hope this doesn't confuse you more....
