Sakhir Orange Owners - Comsetic MODS to enhance the beauty of this wonderful colour

There are lots great looking M6s out there in incredible colours but mines Sakhir Orange so thought I’d create a thread for those other owners in case they have any great ideas to compliment this unusual colour.

Ive got a traditional black interior and planning to retrofit this new headliner (below) with the orange stripe - hoping the bring the outside impact to the interior.

I was taking about changing the colour of the white stitching to Orange (with a sharply/Marker) but maybe thats not necessary if i get the headliner MOD done.

Would love to hear of any other ideas although Im sure the list isnt endless and not limited to cosmetic ideas from people with a Sakhir Orange car lol.

Hey! Mine's the same colour, although badly in need of a wash :-)

I have the same black exterior trim, same bootlid spoiler, but I have satin-black rims, and an ivory interior

Sounds a nice combo - i usually prefer the lighter interior. im hoping my orange headliner stripe lifts the interior though _ i see you aren’t far away (im In Birkdale) but my daughter lives in Media City (Sanford) so ill keep an eye out for your car lol.

Saw a Sakhir Orange M6 GC for the first time today, and sorry that I had eliminated as an choice during my search; it's deeper, richer color in person than the majority of pictures had shown it as. Blood orange is the best I can describe it. I might paint my RX7 that color. =D

itís true that itís hard to capture in pictures - it changes so much in the light from Orange to blood red
