I was browsing the BMW Canada web site and noticed the Crimson Red colour option.

Has anyone ever seen or ordered one?

the dealer next to our office has one for testdrives.... (drove it once)

If you realy want - I can take some pictures next week (monday) as I don't have the cam with me today)

oh, and I like the color, especially as I can't see silver and black cars anymore.... but, the one I'm looking out for would be silver gey, as the red one is too new (and therefore too expensive)

Here... But you really have to see for yourself, red doesn't capture perfectly in cameras...

I saw a Crimson Red 2007 X3 at the dealer. It's pretty bright in the sunlight (brighter than the pictures above). I think it would be one of the last color choices I would pick. The red color seemed somewhat awkward on the X3. Red really does attract police attention so it's something to consider.

The Flamenco Red is MUCH more attractive in my opinion (I assume is discontinued at least in U.S.). Check X3 Skier's garage. :)

More Crimson Red photos. This is closer to the true color.

Yes. Saw one at a test drive last week; did not drive it though.

CA called it "Arrest me red"; Mrs. W. briefly thought it looked interesting. I did not. :(

Thanks for the pictures. I have seen the odd BMW car in red and I always found it interesting that the regular red was one of BMW's no extra charge paint colours.

Not my kind of colour - but it definetely attracts attention in a sea of silver and grey vehicles.

The X3 on display at the LA Auto Show was Crimson Red. I did not like it at all. It was a very un-BMW shade of red.

That must be same one I saw at the San Jose show. I, on the other hand, thought it was a really pretty color. I liked it much better than the previous Flamenco Red, which was too rusty orange for me.
