Thumbs down Fox red Vs Coral red

Hi!!

Was looking at the coral red photos in some 3-series cars and wonder how is it compared with the fox red of the M3. Is the fox red a little bit darker?

To tell you the truth I find the fox red maybe too bright.

Opinions?

Fox red too bright?

Fox red is similar to the darkest areas of this images... It's a crappy color in my own personal opinion, but feel free to form your own opinion

IMO, coral red is much "louder" than fox red. fox red has much more clay/brown tone to it.

i saw fox red on a white M3 and i was very disappointed, it's no where near as good looking as Imola Red or Coral red on the 3 series. I dunno why BMW did it that way, fox should have been on the 3 series, and coral should have been on the M3.

here is a picture i took of fox red on the M3 i saw at the dealer, it's more on the orange/cinammon side, it looks more like the first picture than the second:





i wonder how much it would cost to get Coral as an individual on the M3?

You can only get Carneol Red as an individual option, haven't seen that one though... It's a quite expensive option as well...

To tell you the truth now that I see the photos, the fox red is not a bad option. The problem with the coral red is that I find it too shouty.

Then you'll like Fox red I believe. To me it's barley red, it's more brown.

I love coral, but to each his own. But again, if you think it's too shouty then you'll love Fox red since it's much calmer.

check the picture attached, it's Imola red on my old E46 M3 which i traded in for an E60 2005 M5. Imola in my opinion is the best red interior ever!

I have Fox Red and don't regret my decision. It adds spice to the sportiveness of the car. For me Coral Red is too bright and will never choose it over Fox Red for the M3.

I don't want to offend anyone but Coral Red looks a little bit feminine to me. Fox Red is for us Macho Man.

Coral Red is pretty close to my S5's red interior. It nice but compared to Fox Red it's very bright and how can I say it RED.

On the long term, I think Fox Red will sale better as it's colour is more conservative, though this opinion might only apply to us British and everyone knows how you Americans love the PIMP YOUR RIDE look.
