First 2015 Melbourne Red Metallic Individual M3 Makes a European Delivery Debut

As a fan of all things M, this Melbourne Red Metallic Red M3 was a European delivery experience of a lifetime. My 2011 E90 M3 Competition Package (ZCP) via European delivery, which at the time, I thought would be impossible to improve upon. But it was my first “red” BMW and resulting in unique affection for an F80 in the same style and color.

Delivered to Oregon in September 2015, the car featured here has almost all options except the Ceramic Brakes and Enhanced Exhaust.

The last photo show the 2011 E90 ZCP hiding in the background.

Looks great! As avid red car fans we wish BMW had a real red on the standard palette but alas it allows us individual car owners a bit of exclusivity.

As someone who doesn't care for red unless it's a muscle car or exotic, I'm OK with out a red. SO is close enough for people like me and can't commit to red. Although that Individual lambo red and tan, camel, whatever was awesome!!!

I've never had a red car, but Melbourne Red was always one of my favourite red and it looks great.

Probably my favorite red ever from BMW, I love how dark and unassuming it can be in the shade and overcast. But the metallic flake is beautiful in the sun!

Best individual red yet IMO, some of the ferrari reds burn my eyes they are so bright. I would say this and the hell rot M4 are my favorite reds.

Absolutely agree with that. The Ferrari Red is too bright IMO and kinda flat, while Melbourne Red has a nice low dark look in the shade and overcast. You can see the lines and bulges and the metallic flake gives it a nice touch.

I don't understand why BMW makes people pay so much money for what I consider a standard color of red and blue. I voted yes.

It's actually easy to understand. They can get an extra $5000 from the buyer. It's all about money!
