I'm seeing it as dried mustard.

Maybe it just does not photograph well. Many of BMW's recent colors change appearance in different light, so I'm withholding judgement until I can see it in person.


I knew it was a little different than the 70's color, the '73 911 and Havana RS were almost identical though if not the same Glasurit code, but both the old and new hues change color depending on direct/indirect and artificial/natural light. The point is they're in-your-face colors meant to extract strong emotion and apparently it's already working. grin

Coming in late, but have to say as others have alluded not appealing to me. Since we have the long distance and baggers already I vote for this red color and more this type of platform for a performance model. Honda CBX

If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

K1600B with a trunk. Meh.

The color looks like the same one I've seen on M3s (or are they M4s now?). I like it, but I think it looks way better in person. But I think it's one of those love it or hate it colors.
