Apparently the owner had ordered this color combo sight unseen, and after seeing it in person on delivery, he just couldn't keep the car. I think fox red looks best with black or alpine white. Silverstone is best with silver or black interior. The silver/black, like in the pic above looks really nice and would be the way to go.

Just my opinion, of course.
Totally agree. Just ask yourself, how often do you see Blueish/Silver with red/orange together?
