I saw a pic of the car in the lot of the Varis shop....I wonder what they have in store, haha.

I thought I had a orange car until I saw this. A bit too much Japanese tuning taste and reminds me tuned Honda Integra Rs but looks head turning anyway.

I have to say that if this were the factory orange color offered by BMW on the 1M, I would have definitely opted for it, hands down, no doubts. Love how bold it is! Reminds me of the Glut Orange of Lambo/Audi cars.

OK I will reply this one seriously then: As I said, just remembered some tuned Integra Rs from 90s, don't know why exactly; maybe the effect of the wing combined with the sharp orange color and scoops on the hood, something felt too Japanese, too modded and too far away from the original design for my taste. I liked other heavily tuned 1Ms like Powerbeast's car for example, thought it has a personality and better taste. It was nothing too serious though; as I said this is a head turning study anyway, if that is what a person is looking for. And I was not insulting this work by calling the Honda Integra R since I liked the Integra Rs very much at that time, interesting car to drive.

I also keep on seeing M3 GTS and Audi TTs here with that tone of orange which I disliked after seeing in person.

Not everyone can like everything. That's the point of being different I guess.

Ok, a couple of notes.

1. That color is completely BMW, not Honda/Acura...so I'm confused.
2. The Integra Type-R was a great car of the day...I'm still confused.
3. I had a Black 2001 Type-R (Number 401), which was limited production (like the 1M) and it was track modified; not sure how this is a bad thing...even more confused.
4. Integra Type-R's never came with this wing, and if someone put one on a Type-R people made fun of them mercilessly because there was no power at the back end; so why put a huge wing like this on a car like that (I mean, there are SOME valid reasons...but it's not nearly as necessarily as with a RWD car; it kind of loses some of the purpose).

I kind of get what you're saying; but you should be applying it to wanna-be's. I don't feel that Type-R owners are wanna-be's. We were porting, polishing and sending our engines out for blueprinting as well as ECU tuning our Type-R's for the Honda Challenge (to get every bit of the higher "stock" spec out fo the car), so I consider that pretty admirable.

You're referring to the wanna-be R owners; I get it...someone with an Integra [on the street], that slaps an "R" badge and a wing on a car. But this car is pretty BMW IMO. It looks great. Careful when referring to R owners though. R owners that I know, were VERY technical, and would put many wanna-be's to shame. Please don't generalize "R" owners or Japanese cars to be a negative thing. GT-R is a pretty badass car right? You get my point...

Wording is everything...

Other than not feeling this final look as "very BMW", in fact I agree about almost everything that you said. That is why I also said before that I liked the R at the time (I really did, at one point it was the best bang for the buck when it comes to real sports cars dynamics) and it was a special car. I also said very clearly that I was not trying to downgrade Rs or so, not at all, I said I am not a fan of this look for some reason I myself was also trying to understand and I said it is probably because of a combination of this and that.

I hope that even in internet forums I have a right to not like a particular tuned look of the car that I happen to own, this one I sure didn't like too much.

Why would you get confused about the color by the way? I know it is the same color of the M3 GTS, I just don't like that orange, no matter if it is a BMW color or not (did I say anywhere it is a Honda color?) and don't think that it is the best choice for 1M. I think that bright/flashy orange is only very good on cars like Lamborghini, exotics and 1M is not an exotic, you can pump it to look like similar to one but imo it is not the point of 1M. For some reason I loved the Dakar Yellow on Powerbeast's car, I think it fits better with 1M, there is something graceful about that color especially on M cars and that set of mods somehow stayed loyal to original design of the car more than this "study".

If you read everything I wrote and take them together not selectively I am sure you will agree that in fact we don't have much to argue here. Unlike you guys who posted in favor (big time) I am not too fond of this look. Why it matters to anyone? Call me crazy if it comforts

You like it that's fine with me, good for you. Can everyone admire a heavy tuned look like this universally, is it possible or is it even desired? I don't think so. A 1M like this one on the road will sure turn heads and move eyebrows but not all of these will mean something good, and that is inevitable. The car is already cartoonish enough (I mean in a good way, just delicate balance here) especially in VO. And if you pass that line too much then you are in a territory of 1:1 matchbox cars which I tried to describe by using the words Japanese tuning taste.

I guess color, like most things is subjective. I personally LOVE the color (sans wing) on the car, was in line for a VO initially before I had a chance to see it in person and then was left disappointed because I wanted it to be much bolder, just like the Fire Orange. If it had been offered like that ^^^ out of the factory, I would have opted for it 100%, in fact if we were allowed to pick an Individual color, I would have likely paid extra for it. But then again, this comes from someone that is orange crazy, I nearly bought my RS 4 in Papaya Orange, and then was strongly considering Glut Orange (Lambo Murcielago color), but somehow opted at the end for the 'safer' Sprint Blue. Been itching for a 'properly orange' car ever since, hope it is not a sign of forthcoming midlife crisis

Personally, I think the lines and overall character of the 1M show better with the bolder orange but that's just me.

Very well said. It is very personal taste especially when it comes to strong colors like this. Contrasting your experience, I was feeling good about the M3 GTS color in pictures till I saw one in person and I had a chance to walk around quite a bit; the same happened with a Audi TT. Now this car I felt "overdone" while you probably felt like love at first sight.
