Talking Need Sum Advice!

Hey guys & girls, i'm looking for you to help me out with my decision on what color i should get my 2013 M! My last car was Lemans Blu and now It's a toss up between these two color combos

Opt 1. Space Grey with Fox Red interior
(The only thing that i'm not that crazy about this is that the red isn't really a true red its look more of a rust/orangie-brown tone to it
OR
Opt 2. Silverstone with Palladium blk/silver
(This to me looks like a great combo for the silverstone metallic, but i don't know if its too much with all the two tone?)??

So this is where i need you guys on e90post to help me decide between these two opts. and which one looks better!!! I know it does come down to personal preference but i appreciate any and all advice as i look forward to joining the M community in the next week!

Thanx!

Color combos are purely about personal preference, but I'll weigh in. I like both, but given the choice I'd go with SSII. You can get any 3er in SG but SSII is unique to M cars as far as I know. I am not sure about silver/blk interior though, it's a bit busy. I'd go speed cloth or black novillo.

Option 1 is very nice. I agree that Fox red could stand to be more red.

If you want speed cloth/leather I would trade you my seats for your fox red or black novillo!

Between those two options, I would go with the Melbourne Red & Bamboo Beige - extended, of course.

SG/FR FTW

Since you said SUM let me put it another way...

SG + FR = Winning

Everyone told me SS II with bamboo beige was not a good combination but nothing but praise for it. And your color combo is a personal decision so you can't go wrong at all. I wanted space grey and then I saw a SS II and was sold best decision I made so far.

I like both colors.
I have SSII with black interior. However, I took over a lease from a gentleman. If this was a brand new car, I would have gone with space Gray and Fox red. Or IB with space gray.
