I checked the 2012 thread and didn't immediately see the new color list... anyone know where that is?

Looked like a bunch of the 2012 press photos were in Sedona, but maybe that's a different red?

The 2012 press photos were in Vermillion Red, which is a new color for the 1er.

I haven't seen the color list for MY12, but it makes sense that they would discontinue Sedona or Crimson if they're introducing a new red - I just wasn't sure which it would be.

Hmm, looks like Vermilion is a little deeper red, less orange in it than Sedona?

Yeah, I think so, definitely. Vermillion looks to me like a color that they might name after wine, like "Claret" or "Bordeaux" or something.

Hmm. I have a hunch they discontinued Sedona Red since it was so close to Valencia Orange color on the 1M. Hard to tell exactly unless they're side-by-side, but the Valencia looks only slightly more orange, but with an orange/gold flake.

Check out these pics, and see more of the valencia in non-press photos here:

This is my Sedona 135 in Bavaria last July with Neuschwanstein as a backdrop. I'd just driven her all the way across the Deutsche Alpenstrasse from Berchtesgaden to Neuschwanstein.
Very nice. Military Sales or European Delivery?

I got a great deal from my dealer on a SR.. I have to decide by Monday! It's either the SR with the m-sport 6MT or.. a jet black with DCT.. The SR is 2 grand cheaper since it's a manual & (according to the dealer) SR... This thread makes me want to just get the SR! These are looking pretty good!

Just for the record, I didn't particularly like Sedona Red in photos, but once I saw one in person at the dealer I was so attracted to it that I limited my search to that color! I realized I like a lot of the other colors too, and black specifically, but the sedona red triggered some sort of emotional response in person that the other colors didn't. Made the serach a LOT more difficult. I've only seen one other sedona red driving around here in the SF area since I got mine four months ago.

Micha8--who did your quad exhaust? It looks super. I am looking at Hartge to possibly do mine if theirs will fit on my 2012.

Thanks! This car was next to a Crimson Red 3-series at the dealership and it just POPPED. I knew as soon as I saw it that this was the car for me, and getting behind the wheel only confirmed it.

Similar experience--I wouldn't have guessed from pics but the color really pops in person.

I walked back to my car parked on the street and thought the lighting made for a good shot.

Also I had full black kidneys on, and looked a little too dark for my taste, so went with the black surround with silver bars...
