I originally wanted the atomic with red but they don't make it here so I settled with the nebula. The silver was a little too bright and black is a Pita to maintain (I have 2 other black cars)

I was originally going to get a nebula/red, but got a deal i couldn't pass up on a silver/black. Honestly I was on the phone with multiple dealerships, and I heard of lots of black, nebula, & UW cars. Very rarely did I hear anyone carrying a red or silver one though.

within the US I would say RED/RED is rare. I have the white/red and that took me a while to find because of high demand.

I went to 4 different dealerships to find my car and finally found it!

I didn't think Red on Red was an option even for a special order. Would be very curious to see some pics of that combo. Please share if you have or seen one.

But they are out there in California and available as of right now (not with Mark Levinson, though).
Had no idea they were that limited here. I managed to snag one in April of this year.

Red on red and Nebula Gray Pearl on Red are the toughest in my area. Even Ultra White on Red was tough to find, so I settled with Nebula Gray Pearl on Black. However, I would've loved a Nebula Gray on Red

I saw 2 nebula/red at the Lexus dealership in Miami. The sales guy stated they had them for 2 months and no one in Florida seems to be interested. He stated everyone in Florida wants Parchment,Gray,or Black. Funny that he mentioned that cause I chose gray interior. More conservative people here I guess.

When I picked my car up in Nov the most common color combo was the nebula gray/red. The "rarest" was ultra white/red but I wanted ultra white/black which I was told does not exist in CA for 2015...It sounds like it really just depends on the area and what is shipped where.

Is matador red mica exterior with red interior a thing? I have never seen one and I couldn't configure one online either. Must have been a special order when the car first came out. When I went to get my car, they told me that the red interior was rare and that they only made a few with it. I wanted ultra white on red but they didn't have any coming in and the only red interior car coming was nebula gray which I didn't like at the time. I had to wait a few weeks to get the only ultra white on black is250 f sport with navigation system that was coming in that month. A friend of mine who is on the forums got white on black but traded in for white on red when they became more available.

Regardless of interior color, I have yet to see a MRM F-sport in the Houston area. Only in pics and I think it looks great. Would love to see one on the road.
