The two go together beautifully but....I didn't realize that the maple anthracite had a distinctive brownish tinge to it, depending on how the light hit it. So it depends on your outside color. In my case, the maple anthracite clashed horribly with the outside and I've chosen the piano black, a sample of which also happened to be in the packet from Germany.

If you can get your hands on some samples, please do. The maple anthracite trim piece goes beautifully with ruby black, they have the same tones if you know what I mean and there's no clashing going on. I only had the chance to put it up beside the color swatch printed in the M3 Individual brochure but they look good together. Of course, the piano black is classic and will go perfectly with anything.

Hope that helps. Mark

Mark in your research did you ever get any samples of the Rust Brown Novillo. I am not sure I am in for the extra bucks but I was thinking of getting Azurite Black with Rust Brown versus with Fox Red. The combo would list for an extra $6,700 but I would like to get something more unique. In my case I am getting a e93 so the interior will be front and centre all summer (I hope). I have seen the Red Fox extended and it is quite nice I am concerned that I might get tired of it.

Hey brother, sorry for th delay getting back to you. Yes, I did get samples and it's a gorgeous colour. If you haven't already done so, call up a dealer who sells Individual cars (they'll have samples, very large ones like a piece of drapery) so you can see for yourself. Between Azurite and Rust Brown...I think you'll be sold!!
