405 Imolarot II, same color as my 330i ZHP :thumbsup:

R!CH!E 09-10-2012 07:36 PM

why does it not look like 405 Imolarot II do u think just cuz the image has been inhanced

cak323i 09-10-2012 07:56 PM

possible but man does it look fresh! Can also be the lighting....on darker days my ZHP has the same look :)

Looks like the paint code is "photoshop".

With all the effects people put on photos now, it can be very difficult to determine the actual color of some cars from a picture. Especially if it is one of the colors that have many, many shades (like blue or silver/grey). Off the top of my head I can only think of one OEM BMW red paint color on the e46 M3, and that is the aforementioned Imolarot II.

Yeah, I don't get it either. I mean, the car doesn't look like that in real life. I hate when people put pictures of their cars on here with a ridiculous amount of filters and saturation. Artsy. Neato. But it's not what the car really looks like.

That is correct unless the person special orders his ///M in another shade of red such as japanrot, which I learned today. Then it's through BMW Individual.

Yeah, I don't know all of the Individual Option colors out there, I know there are some wacky ones... also some fantastic ones (like my LeMans Blue :woot:)

look like same color as mine.

Mine's Imola. It a good-looking color but it's never that shade--that's too dark and rich.

As mentioned, that image is enhanced. Pointless and misleading, I agree. Happens a lot with this color, unfortunately.

A little internet wizardry and voila, here are more pictures of the same car, apparently named "Sophie":

EXIF data has been removed so hard to get much further.
