I've seen a Cinnabar Pearl SC300 in person. There was one for sale not far from me 5 years ago. Tan interior. Around 110k on it. I would see it as I drove from my house to Fizz Autosports when they were in Arlington Hts. The first couple times I passed I thought it was just a normal maroon 98+ SC, but one day it was bright and sunny and I drove by and the car just looked... well, RED red. So a couple days later I stopped by and checked it out. Cinnabar in direct sunlight is crazy. It's like a dark red with gold flake in it. The only other color I've seen on SCs [in person] that looks as good in sunlight is Imperial Jade Mica. Never seen a SRQ in person, but from what I've seen in picts SRQ in good condition is heavenly lol.

But yes, Cinnabar is the forgotten SC color

How about Garnet Pearl (3K3)? I absolutely love that color.. I rarely see that color too. Midnight Indigo Pearl used to be my favorite but the more I look at 3K3 the more I fall in love with it..

I have the same color. Factory 5 speed
I didn't know how rare this color was. I used to hate it. I have the 2009 m3 Melbourne red now. 😂
