Seriously? You started yet another thread about the fact that you can't decide on a color?

How do you dress yourself in the morning?

I'm going to say go with Crimson Red. There's entirely too many blue BMWs.

Agree with the Lemans/saddle; enough to be different while not screaming, "look at me"! I'm not really a fan of red BMWs, though. Draws too much attention.

Looks like Lemans I like the Red but you hit it straight on...Too much attention and never under the radar,literally. P.S. Love the black just too much effort is the Sapphire any easier??
