I am interested in ordering a new M5 with Indianapolis Red exterior and Portland Brown interior. I have not seen this exterior color in person, but feel it would suit me. I have read the old posts/pics regarding this color. What are some of the long term impressions of the people who have this color? I have read some comments about how the color lacks some luster in overcast weather, true?

Does anyone here have the combo (exterior/interior) as above. It seems that those colors would compliment each other well. Of note, my other exterior color considerations are Interlagos or Monaco blue. Thanks for your thoughts.

i personally love the color. but i've noticed that red along with interlagos blue takes a bit of a hit during resale. those two colors tend to be more personalized. if you don't care about resale value, go for it.

At this point I am leaning more toward leasing rather than financinig. That makes the choice easier, since I would not need to worry about ease of resale. That is a good point though, thanks.

It appears prior to MY08, Indy Red/Portland Brown combo wasn't available. I believe MY06 and MY07 Indy Red exterior only has a choice of Black or Indy Red interior.

Therefore, opinions from Indy Red/Portland Brown owners might be rare.

I'm usually not a fan of same color exterior/interior combo, but when I saw the Indy Red/Indy Red combo in person, I knew there was no other choice for me.

IMHO, Indy Red/Indy Red/Madeira Walnut Wood is the combo to go with if choosing Indy Red exterior.

Although the brochures show only specific combinations, any interior color can be paired with any exterior color.

Red is nice Interlagos Blue is nicer.....I do love the portland brown, although i think it goes best with a black exterior.

I have an indy red M6, and honestly I do not think the color works for the M5. I have only seen one but I think any of the other colors are a better choice. JMO

Go Indianapolis Blue. A fantastic color. I was tempted but I own so resale was a tiny factor but mostly I like my car to look sinister so stuck with black.

IB rocks so pull the trigger on it:cheers:
