X3 Melbourne Red ordered

I ordered my X3 in Melbourne Red. I like how it looks in configurator, but I am worried that in real life it might be different. Does anyone have some god pics of Mebourne Red in the wild?

Was worried when I saw this color at this dealer site, but 100% sure now it's the lighting for all other Melbourne reds don't look this red going orange http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1026575

After seeing live Space Grey in another thread, I called and changed the color to SG in my existing order. I hope they don't punish me for this by giving my already late slot to someone else. I have seen too many photos in red looking weird which made me nervous.

I think SG is really a bit boring now, I don't understand why the heck they don't offer the Sophisto grey on the X3 as they are offering it on the X4.
Anyway: you have to like it!
Color changes (except for individual) do not affect the built date normally.

my mother just got the x3 in melbourne red on the oyster leather. It looks amazing paired together. You can't go wrong with that combination.

i believe the red looks better in msport line, black trim makes it look cheap
