I love the Melbourne Red, that is what I got on my 228i, I was just a sucker for the commercials.
Love the way it looks and I cannot wait to get mine.
Enjoy the car.

My 228i is MR too. The pictures are great but the color is just amazing in person.

I'm most likely going with Melbourne Red on the 235. However, the Black Dakota interior seems like it would be too hot for the south. I'll trash the Oyster and the Taupe just isn't what I'm looking for. And, Coral Red...well, that's a lot of red inside and out.

Where did you install the clear bra on? Hood, fenders, mirrors, front bumper? May I know how much it is?

The clear bra was quarter hood, full bumper, and side mirrors. The price would depend on your installer, but is usually under $1K USD to do a similar job.
