: I am currently ordering a 2001 540iA. Does anyone have any experience with Electric Red? Or am I better off with a metallic color?

I too was going to order my 2001 530i in Electric Red. I ended up ordering it in Cosmos Black. To me Red is the most sporty color (and best color for maintenance - it looks good even when dirty). Unfortunitely, many dealers (as well as my wife) pursuaded me into a more conservative color based on the fact that it is a sport sedan and not a Porsche.

Still, I will say that I have not seen many in the Electric Red, and still believe that it makes the sport sedan look more sporty.

Another option may be to special order your car in Imolia Red...
