: I'm thinking about buying an 'arrest-me' red M3 (at least it doesn't have a spoiler, and it is a 4 door).
: I'm a little concerned that red color, especially on a car like the M3, will attrack undo polic attenition.

: So, for those of you with red BMWs, has this been a problem--or is it just a myth?

I always thought it was a myth until I got my first red car. Holy moly! Three tickets in my first month of ownership!!! Prior to this red car, zero!
If you think red is bad, try dakkar yellow. Everytime I go out I swear there is a cop always following me! I just got my first last week with my dakkar M3. I know it was because of the color because I was traveling in a pack of about four cars and he only singled me out in the middle of the pack. Asshole cops. Luckily for internet traffic school.
