welcome to the forums, Some will probably let you know to search for pictures of red BMW's instead of asking for them, as they may have been posted before

Cool cool. Same here, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Probably just wrap the exterior black molding in vinyl and buy a set of summer OEM wheels. Maybe buy some clears..

I know, which is why i was confused when you said electric red is Japanrot. i really dont like the term electric red, its ambiguous towards preface hellrot and facelift japanrot, and it also makes it sound japanese.
