I saw a Estoril Blue M Roadster (original Estoril) the other day and in direct sun it is a lighter blue, but its not like it becomes a powder blue (liquid blue) or anything like that, I like how it looks better without direct sunlight but am still okay with it in the sun (have one on order...).

Melbourne red might be a bit different. In a showroom I love how it looks, outside I am not too sure on it. I prefer Vermillion red which is what our X3 is, that is a bright red in sun and a ruby red at night or when cloudy, looks amazing in M Sport form on the X3.

Yeah, I like that vermillion a lot. That's darker to begin with, right? Looks great on the X3, almost got it on my wife's but she preferred black or silver and I loved how well silver shows the lines on that car.

I'm starting to lean towards EBII for my F30, but last week I said black an the week before I said MG, saw those Melbourne m sport pics and got me thinking lol

My wife always wants red (her last three cars were red) so that kind of ruled out Melbourne red for me as I don't want two cars in the same shade. Otherwise I would seriously be considering Melbourne red on the F30
