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

Tom,

Red on a 540 doesn't work well. It really looks garish. On a beautiful car like the 540 stick with basic colors; silver, white, black.

I have a Alpine White/Sand 540IA. White is so sweet. It is very forgiving as far as dings, etc., it stays cool, and is very noticeable, head-turning quotient, and safety. I never liked white before, I was afraid I would be bored with it but when it's buffed, man it's BITCHEN!

Best,

Norman
