Being Polish, I should say that white on red goes well together. Well, not this time, sadly. This color combination is difficult for my eyes. And the pitch black wheels give the car an even more "tough love" look.

With this body, a classic color combination would do. Like the azurite black with light brown leather, as in one of the earlier posts. And no black wheels, these are the worst.

Can't comment on the other merits of this car, as I haven't yet been blessed with the privilege to try. Can't imagine that any would be a flop, though.

Of all the gorgeous reds BMW has used in the past, they chose this shade to release the fastest M ever. C'mon man!

That's powerfully ugly. White interiors have never worked in anything but maybe an old lady's Cadillac.

I can appreciate it but certainly would never buy this color combo.

I think it’s beautiful. My wife has oyster leather, it’s just classier than a standard Black or brown. And the black trim pops perfectly.

I love white interior. I really like light interiors. My Jag was on white interior and loved it!

Hard on the eyes.
That is terrible. I really don't like color. But hey. It got us talking! So you can't blame them for that!

Once my wife saw a frozen color on an M4 and asked what happened to it.

Sometimes launch editions are just too weird.

Nice car, but definitely not for me. I do, however appreciate the effort to push the envelope and do something unconventional with regards to a launch edition.

Agree with the above comments, not the best combo for a first edition. Also the wheels in black are hideous. This car has some tough competition to the E63 S

Paint match reflectors would have to be the first mod.

Love frozen paint jobs with black rims. Interesting color combo. But the shift lever must be smaller and more ergonomic!
