Nice car. I'm pretty sure it's crimson. Pop the hood, it will say what it is on the bottom of the hood.

NEWS FLASH. Ran it through the old Google Translate and... Karmesin (not Karmine) is German for Crimson. Your color is Crimson red, hate to burst your bubble. The color is not Karmine Red, you read it as KarmesinRot or Crimson Red.

two different colors man, im not calling it karmine because of what it says under my hood. At the dealer he had to look up my color code for touch up paint and on his whole list of colors there was crimson red and carmine red (or karmine i will have to check my touchup paint) and all the other colors bmw makes. If it really means that much to you i will get the sheet he showed me and upload it I will also check my touch up paint, maybe it says it on there.

I've known these cars quite a while and no such color exists. Again as I said, it could be a misprint or a misspelling in their system. Unless it's a BMW Individual special order color, it's Crimson.

didnt mean to start a war over the NAME OF A COLOR but it is in fact carmine ....my touch up paint says it.....it matches my color code.....thats what the dealer told me (and i know because I argued it was crimson as well)....according to the dealers computer it is indeed carmine. If the touchup paint isnt proof enough than i dont really care lol
