As I recall, SSII/Fox Red is not a "recommended" combo per BMW, but neither is SSII/Bamboo and I took the chance (and love it).

I have seen the combo on an E90 and it did look good, although I am just not a fan of FR. If you search the color threads, specifically for the FR interior, I believe that someone did post up pics. Although FR can be a difficult color to capture in its truest sense....

Good luck!

If it helps, I have an e92 M3 SSII/fox red extended, brushed aluminum trim, fully loaded, 18inches and DCT...

The color combo is beautiful atleast in my opinion, the SSII gives the car a classy mature look, while the interior color gives the car an aggressive hottt look lol I love the combo... (I can try to find you pictures to post but don't have any at the moment sorry)

Not trying to start a fight too, in my opinion i believe that if u're doing alot of city driving then the DCT would be a wise choice to go for, its fun and not as tedious as a manual, but hey not to say the manual aint fun too its just that in cities the manual can get hectic sometimes....

I just finished two years with my car, and have over 49000 miles on it and trust me its a piece of art and a great car, be it performance, transmission ... it does exactly what you want it to do and a lovely car to drive

What does BMW "recommended" combo mean? That sounds like a great combination? I didn't know BMW tried to push color combos.

Go black.

Red looks nice for a couple week, but you will grow tired of it quickly.

Thanks for replies guys. I think silverstone makes the car show it's agresive looks fox red will give car that pop. The dct will make me enjoy the car more on the mountain roads that option still debating on. The 6mt was great for me but was replaced after only 10000 miles and the second one had the same problem grinding noise from 1 to 2 hard to get it right after 8000 rpms I drove the car hard. Don't know if the dealer miss diagnose the problem maybe it's the clutch, but when you racing a mustang or any crap like that it's very imberrasing to miss the gear. Been diving 6mt since my first car. The cars got a lot better and maybe it's time to switch. The m3 e90 will not going to be made so want to make it special.

I think they won't let you order certain color combinations for leasing, since they will have a hard time reselling the car later.

My dealership also told me they were cautious about custom ordering cars with certain combos, even if you put a deposit down, because they don't want to be stuck with a car they can't sell. Fortunately mine (SG + FR + CL) was a "reasonable" combination, according to them.

I beleive the AW/FR is the best combo for FR interior. For a silverstone, black looks absolutely stunning. My X5M is silverstone with black non perforated (cant stand those little holes). Its a sure win, just make sure to get extended leather and i guarantee you'll be satisfied. its a sure win bro
