Till the last minute. But in my case, I saw a Jerez Schwarz in person and was blown away by the colors it showed. I had to have it. Interior was blk/blk/carbon trim and then I saw the fox rd/blk and almost changed it last minute. Im glad I didnt as it wouldve looked like crap with the blue tint of Jerez.

Now if I had seen Koop's Azurite Black/Rust Brown, he and I would have twins (mine in the E90 flavor of course).

Point is, its normal. Just take your time and the color will come to you. You can even change after ordering I think until like the week of production. Im not sure though, double check on that...

The pictures are amazing and I'm gonna get her tinted.

Can't stand fox red but that's just me. And since I don't tend to keep cars very long I wouldn't want a color (either interior of exterior) that appeals only to small subset of buyers.

Mineral white and fox red is awesome combo, good choice. Assume you've already seen it in person but if not you definitely won't be disappointed.

I prefer Mineral White over SSII. The Fox Red interior looks great. Nice choice!

I have MW and BB and its a very nice clean combo. I also liked the FR interior, but the one that had it didnt have the ZCP, so BB won

I'm glad I got a mineral white with black on black interior. I found an online article that said white was the safest color for cars. I like white for a lot of reasons including: looks cleaner when it's dirty or scratched paint, less flashy and draws less attention, it's easier to see the beautiful curves and BMW styling.

Black/black interior is classier. Red interior draws too much attention away from the rest of the car. Some people like red interior and some people hate it. But everyone likes black on black to some extent.

You could go for a more exotic look or you could play it safe with white/bb.

I got the car used and would have opted for carbon fiber interior trim. Now I think I like the standard interior more and glad that I have it.
