I can't decide between Melbourne Red vs. Mineral Grey...

Looks good. Wonder what brand and size tyres they are?

Michelin for sure.
Likely PSS, after looking closely at more pics of that same car on Flickr.
Don't know the size.

In another thread, I noted that there aren't many people with the Melbourne Red on this forum. Good to see some posts about it. Caycep, go with the Red.

I think I might change my order from MW to MR. Only thing I won't be thrilled with is having a drab black interior. I can't see myself going with any other color but black... oyster would be nice, but I am too lazy to keep it clean. Wonder if I can swap the sportline trim to match the red exterior.

MR really pops but MW is also a fine choice.Me personally prefer MR & Mineral Gray... Both seen in person.

I ordered mine in Melbourne Red with Oyster interior and I CAN'T WAIT to see it. The melbourne red is just so unique, no one seems to buy it... I think it makes the car look so sporty. I originally ordered mine in Mineral White, and 24 hours later I called and changed the order because you only live once and red is way more fun

Tough call. Strictly, IMHO, I wouldn't do that. I'm not saying it won't work because the interior does have the black floor and side panels for contrast; I just think it might be a little much. If you're asking my opinion, I would probably choose the Black with the Red stitching as first choice, and Oyster as a second choice for a MR vehicle. If you don't want to go dark or light, then be bold and take a chance and order it with the Coral Red. (FYI, I have the Terra interior in my car, but I would not put that in a MR car).

I agree. I've seen Melbourne Red and it is very candy apple in real life. These pics are using a fair bit of HDR and subdued the red. The Coral on the other hand is very different in tone and shade. I just don't think it would match, despite having seen the two together in pictures and not looking all that bad. I think in real life it just won't work. Beside, the red adds some wow factor, especially inside. And the MR is a much nicer shade of red than Coral that your interior will pale in comparison and lose its effect.

I am sticking with black although oyster could be nice too if you want more affect, as it's an off-white color. I can't keep it clean, so I won't bother with it, but it's nice. I would have done saddle brown to give it an old school mini Ferrari look, but Terra is not Saddle. It won't look quite right on MR like Saddle would, IMO.
