The reason I say this is because from personal experience cops really do look for the red sports cars to ticket. An example of this is the time me and my friend in his 3000gt were racing on this highway goin bout 80mph and before I knew it this cop was behind us flashin his lights. But instead of pullin him over, since he was behind me, he passed my friends car and came after me.
Anyways I now have about 9 points on my license. I'm not saying that all of those points came from have a cherry m3, but it probably did have something to do with it. Good luck

: 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?
