Let's clear up the issue on BMW Red Leathers

This issue came up on a different board. Not really correct information either.

The true colors are different under natural light. But relative to one another, this pic shows the difference pretty closely.



Kyalami is a very distinct orange red. It is definitely orange, but it has red in it.
Tanin red is very burgundy.
Imola red has a very distinct pink hue.
Dream red is the brightest and most red of all BMW red leathers.

What's the confusion? Imola vs Dream can be confusing when looking into a dark interior, but with light, even that's not tough.

Your guess is as good as mine. They are clearly all very different to me.
