A luxury/sport car like the E92 M3 must have a brown leather option.

Honestly I don't like the leather colors offered on the E92.

Bamboo is somewhere between beige and brown, Fuchs is not really red.

The E46 M3 leathers were far better.
More agreement here.

The cinnamon was an instant favorite for me. The oxybraun is close enough to love.

Current standard colors are...ahem...too standard.

BB = Sandy beige (Excellent neutral, understated, but will look OK to very good with most of the standard paints)
Fox Red = brick (Somewhat unique which looks great with anachromas (AW, SG, JB, JzB) but not much else IMHO)
Silver = A pale baby blue (Unique that looks good with many of the standard paints, but isn't my cup of tea)
Black = The timeless color for a can't-go-wrong-with-it in any sports or GT car. Again IMHO.

The oxybraun appears close to the Portland saddle tan that is in some M6s. It's somewhat of a neutral with character. Again...IMHO.
