BMW sure doesn't want to offer a proper red in any of their standard lineups do they?

Not being critical, just trying to comprehend the argument for wrap over individual paint. Thoughts?

Individual option is ~24.5k for an M2C. Secondly I think this has only been a few times and I'm not even sure how the ordering process worked for that since it seems to be very exclusive and interrupts the whole assembly line. If it followed the same individual order process as the M3/M4, etc... I would've gladly ordered Imola Red, Ferrari Red or Toronto Red...would've been a tough choice.

Edit: See here for that discussion: https://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1617142

Love it, the color looks so great on a small car like this. The paddle shifters are a nice touch

Simply fantastic. I had a red BMW in the garage from 1994 until earlier this year. At one point an Imola M3, Imola X5,and Melbourne M3 (almost had that one done in Imola — only $5k at the time but I just couldn’t justify it). All at the same time. It was glorious.

Lately red paints have been reserved for only M suv’s for some weird reason. Last M car with a red option I believe was the E9x M3 with Melbourne Red Metallic.

Some folks have mentioned they don't like to see the muffler hanging below the rear diffuser of the car. Many have used black high temp paint on the muffler. I have gone a different route...here is a teaser:

List of mods thus far:

Full wrap in 3M Dragon Fire Red, all carbon fiber coated in XPEL Ultimate Clear
Glanz Ceramic Coating
XPEL XR+ 35% Tint
Clearplex Windscreen Protector
M Performance 763M Wheels with MPSC2 Tires (AutoPro Ceramic Coated with black stems and weights)
M Performance Front Lip
M Performance Side Skirts
M Performance Diffuser
Shuttergang Labs CS Style Spoiler
Acexxon Slotted Rear Reflector Insert
AA Midpipe
Cerakoted Exhaust by High-Tech Coatings
MaximumPSI Crank Hub (Installed by Lang Racing)
VRSF Downpipes
ECUTEK (Tuning by Ian@Bend Calibration - Same tuner as my E46 M3 and long time friend)
Bimmercode coding (ASD deleted before first startup along with a bunch of other functional improvements)

















First track session at Big Willow back in January (Oil slick previously spread by corvette on Turn 8); This was my last session of the day and sloppy lines but was having a great time with the car. My best sessions were 1:38 with plenty to improve.



Took some more photos out at Supercars by the Beach (cars and coffee) and added MMR Shift Paddles. I originally was interested in the Pedal Haus Paddles but these peaked my interest. They're definitely an improvement. I'll keep a lookout for the Pedal Haus ones to compare as I've always been a big fan of their products and will likely get their pedals like I have in my E46 M3.









Baseline Dyno - AA Midpipe with Shell 91ACN Fuel





SAE format for all future comparisons. Nobody likes STD's


Some new toys...ECUTEK with tuning by Bend Calibration:




Getting the MaxPSI Crank Hub installed at Lang Racing:



Some folks have mentioned they don't like to see the muffler hanging below the rear diffuser of the car. Many have used black high temp paint on the muffler. I've gone a different route with same visual result...here is a teaser:

Is that the E46 w carbon roof, cards, and so much stuff done to its mythical?

It's a pretty nice red as red goes.
Suits the M2 and pops with those wheels.

No carbon roof and completely stock interior. I still run a factory rad, transmission, driveshaft, differential as well. Fully daily drive-able and is wonderful to get groceries in. It's definitely fast though and perhaps mythical 😂
