Which M3 - Ferrari Red or Urban Green?

Hi,

I'm thinking about a move over to a BMW M3 F80. I have two choices currently, a Ferrari red or Urban Green BMW M3. The Urban green is new and 2018 model, the Ferrari Red is 2017 and has run about 10.000km. Both has the competition package and all options you really need in a M car.

This is the Ferrari red one:

Urban Green:

What do you guys think?

Urban Green is one of my favorite colors. Very unusual to see it.

Red, the green looks like it belongs on a tank.

The new LCI headlights look so much better than the old LED headlights. Also, I'm not a huge fan of green normally but this one looks amazing. I would go for the 2018 for sure.

Urban green was a color they offered for 1 year on the Z4 - complete failure and it brought pictures like this:

Never seen that green before. Interesting. Red looks great. Total opposites though. Not like asking us to pick between Ferrari Red and Melbourne Red. This one really depends on how much you want to stand out! Good luck!

The Urban Green in the OP's post seems metallic compared to the one on the Z4. Kind of like to the Atlantis Blue vs. Laguna Seca Blue.

Go with a BMW heritage color. Leave Ferrari red for Ferraris. If you must red, Imola or Melbourne.

Agree w you. Go with Bmw colors or something really unique that actually looks good. That urban is awful and will be a regret of urs in the future if you pick it.

Old headlights remind me of something like this out of VW Jetta world

More safe in terms of what?

If you're talking resale it's apples to oranges because the red one is used.

I vote for the green. It's different and not screaming for attention.... unlike the red.
