Red 540I 403-QEW W

to you, the red 540i with a chrome M plate surround,i don't know what model(if your on here) I was the white E46 330i that was in front of you when you got on the 403 from the 407.

I must say it looks very nice and very clean. I like what you have done with it.
it's very sharp!!

the only red E39 540 I know of is Rocco from RMP, there's Imola red E39 M5's, but if you say it's a 540 than it should be Rocco

There are a bunch of imola red Msport e39s in Toronto if i'm not mistaken. I'd be surprised if the owner was on this forum.

I know there are a bunch but they are M5's, I don't think they make E39 540i's in Imola red, if you have seen one than most likely it's custom.

04 is a E60 not E39, and we are also talking about E39 540i's specifically

I forgot to mention, I believe Rocco's red is a Ferrari red, not a red from BMW.

Imola Red, I believe, was a colour you could only get in '03 on the 540i with M-Sport package (the ones that came with the M-Parallels and M5 bodywork). Pretty sure but I could be wrong. The best models/packages always come at the end of the production run.
