I would for sure stick with the same color. But if I felt like paying 10k plus for paint and interior...

I would have done ruby black with the rust interior. I'll always spend way too much on a car, but I can't justify spending $8,000 for a paint color.

2008 BMW M3  [0.00]
A few days ago, I would have said yes - I wish i had Jerez Black. However, today, as I walked through downtown I saw a JZB M3 with many paint swirls on it. They were screaming look at me as the car glimmered in the sun. Even though I would not run the car through the wash - it is bound to happen at some point. Dealers do it shamelessly to cars that are serviced.

AW is great because not only does it make the car look awesome, but the paint stays in pretty good shape. I have 3M clear bra up from with additional pieces in key spots. The car is in great shape.

Interior-wise, I would swap my black extended for red extended.

Rust Brown I debated when I ordered mine but couldn't justify nearly an extra 2000. It does look amazing though!

That's a great look. If money were no object I would have gone with Black Ruby and Rust Brown, but that Hellrot looks great. But money is an object and I would rather spend the $12g on performance down the road.
