It might be bright but it could just be the pictures. The only way to find out would be to run the VIN or look at the plate in the engine bay.

is this Imola Red?

It's the lighting / pics that make it look bright.

Looks Imola Red and says so in the ad.
You can call the seller and ask him to take a pic in the front strut with the plate for the color.

Thought mine was Imola Red until my independant BMW repairer told me it was Hellrot and a check of the paint code (314) proved it
