: My dilemma, What are the no kidding colors for the three “M” colors? The way I see it is: Lt Blue, Violet, Orange The way I have seen it painted on everything is: Lt Blue, Dark Blue, Red. If you look closely at the emblems stuck on your car you will see the orange color NOT red. Check out the ///M in the center of your instrument cluster and the badges that adorn the trunk and grill for example.
The pantone colors mentioned later are very, very close. The dark center stripe is actually a blue/violet and the red is closer to a Henna red. And the badges do fade into the colors most seen - the light blue holds up the best. However, if you get the Motorsport stripes and flag decals we sell, they are guaranteed to not fade for 7 years. Our experience with them so far, 3 1/2 years later, is that the guarantee is holding up! Email us for more info.
