I like that red, but the problem is it reminds me of Texas A&M - I know that will mean nothing to the OP, but oh well.

Beautiful car nonetheless. :cheers:

This color reminds me of the Canyon Red '98 540i6 I used to own. The metalic responds so well to changes in lighting. My Avus also responds to lighting changes with variation in shade. Is this an "Individual" color?

thanks for the kind words. i dont think it was an individual colour, just not very common. i was initially after a carbon black but the one i found got sold to someone else. as i was leaving the dealership i spotted this one tucked away in the corner.

the metallic really does respond well to changes in light/shade. it almost like having 3 or 4 different colours rolled in to 1.

ill try and get some shots up at night under lights and daytime sun for a comparison.

I concur with everyone else..

the car is beautiful...


I think most people overlook the beauty in a stock "Euro spec-clear corner headlight" E39 M5.
All it needs just good suspension drop and good exhaust.. :D:D:D


BTW: what kind of exhaust is that ?

Regardz,

J Irwan


exhaust is eisenmann race with SS x-pipe. left side is sagging a tiny bit but will put that straight this week. i just had PSS9's put on but havent set the final ride height yet as im waiting for my OEM 275's to arrive for the front hopefully this week.

but i agree with you ... all it needs is a good drop and the 275's should fill out the front arches nicely. the rest of the $$ can go on performance :M5launch:

Those are great pictures of the way Chiaretto Red tends to 'color shift' with tones of the ambient light... orange and gold highlights, but maroon in low light levels.

Almost bought one...
