Thanks all. Quick answers to your various questions:

1. The exhaust is the Eisenmann 102 with cross pipe. Sounds and looks great.
2. The ordering on a non-individual color took an extra two months of production. You can request any color from your dealership that in turn goes to BMW NA to request a special order. I am told they don't always accept. In my case they did for the very unreasonable cost of $5,000.
3. IND did all the grill paint work.
4. I am sending IND the car this month to do more custom work. I will post updated pictures once it is done.

Thanks for the interest.
Great color, congratulations. I am guessing the blue calipers are among those future IND works since they are the only detail which don't fit with the otherwise perfect car.

I don't understand why BMW doesn't offer more colors for the calipers
Can't wait to see the other upgrades

Looks awesome! Congratulations.

Also makes me wonder why there isn't standard red color to choose for a car like M5. Maybe in the future BMW will only set black and white for standard color and all others become individual so they get to make extra $$$ on paint.

Looks fantastic.

Black out or color match the door handles it will complete the look.

...And black out the M5 emblem, put darker tint on the light covers like dark smoke tint front and back, you can get the 3M carbon fiber wrap, and get mate black rims... and it would be imola boss

Wow, looks great, the best red imho. The car actually looks smaller in that coler (I know that sounds dumb).

Very jealous.

A bit OT but I would love to see a 1M in IR.

Excellent choice! It's a shame BMW didn't make this a regular color.

Can't wait for update.
