Go Extended with FR

Fox Red is the one color that begs for the extended leather option. Unlike black, which hides the extended leather portions, FR matches perfectly. In a vert, it really makes the interior look worthy of the price.

Fox red is hands down the best color interior in the M3

I saw a black coupe with black interior and fox red inserts. Wow! VERY nice! Would definitely not tire of that.

I also saw a total fox red interior and although I liked it, I could see myself tiring of it after awhile - bit too much for me.

The black/red combo would be the perfect balance for me. But only on a black or white exterior. Where I live, black is too hard to keep clean and I'm not a big fan of white so fox red wasn't in the cards for me, but still like it.

At the end of the day tho, doesn't really matter what others think. You're writing the check, get what you like and don't look back.

Fox red is the type of color that at first you might not like but then you will keep liking it. That said, I prefer black on a white car but FR on black or SG

I have JZB & FR, and I would have nothing else. FR is a lush colour and the smell is great.

I was going to go the FR route, but played it safe with Black. I like both, and I was afraid I might get sick of FR

I have SSii with fox red and I love it wouldn't choose any other color combination nor would I pic any other interior. I also had red in my 2008 335xi coupe, loved it as well.

I have the same combo. If I order a 2013, it will definitely be Fox Red again. I may switch to Space Gray just to change things up but I still love the Fox Red.

I would go with the space gray it looks great with the fox red. My e92 335xi was sparkling graphite with red it looked amazing.

The Black Extended leather makes the cockpit wayyyyy classier than the standard and fox.

People dismiss it as being hidden, but if you're sitting in the car, it looks amazing. That leather wrapped dash board is hard to beat.

EDIT: Researching, it didn't look like the leather dash was an option on extended. The car I reference above might have been an individual option or custom job, but i'm telling you, there was a black leather dash, looked great!

Had a Jet Black/Coral Red 335xi coupe for almost 3 years, traded for Jerez Black/Fox Red. I love this combination. It was just enough of a change-up from what I had with the 335. I think any kind of Red Leather is pretty rare outside of higher end luxury cars, so it definitely makes it stand out a bit. I saw a Black/Black M3 about a week ago in my work parking lot, and that combo came across as stark and a bit depressing to me.

Second that. It's not that extreme to be honest. Just looks great. The red my buddy had on his 335 was pretty extreme. Not sure what that's called, maybe blood red? FR is as the name implies, the color of a fox.

Yup, exactly. I love the color red and this red is nice and subtle while still being different and eye catching. I was looking at interiors of other car's like Maserati's red and that shit is waaaay too red.
