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.

so what you are saying is that bright orange cars with wings look like tuned hondas.

What is your opinion on these?

I had a toy Porsche 911 in orange so yes for the P car, less so for the M3.

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.

Agree as well... except for the 5K individual part....

Had the 1M come in Fire Orange... I would have possibly gotten it over black. Possibly....Valencia is pretty.... especially in full sunlight.... but it loses a lot of pop on cloudy days...
