Fox Red samples

BMWNA's response to my request for a sample of Fox Red:

"Thank you for your reply. I have, in fact, just heard back from an internal
resource about your request. As this vehicle is not yet in production and all
of the marketing tools (such as leather swatches) have not yet been sent to our authorized BMW centers, we cannot send one out to you. I am sure you understand our position on this. I am sorry if this is disappointing to you."

Grrrr...

How macho can you be if you worry about color?

Glad that you took it in the good humor intended. I love my Coral with the black wood and Space Grey exterior.
Some of my best friends are architects!

I'm not an architect, but I can appreciate the intent! I spend 1.5 - 2 hrs / day in my car - more than my dining room - so why not fuss a bit about the interior.. doesn't make one "metro" (not that there's anything wrong w/ it )

imola red > coral red > fox "red" (if u can still call it a red)
i hope that all the pics im seeing give fox red no tru justice, and that it looks better in real life.
in most pics ive seen, it looks dull, but in those rare few, it has a more vibrant tone to it, which is what i like. so ill have to wait n see i guess

It looks good in the Ordering Guide swatch, but you can't trust printed representations. I may just go Alpine/Speed Cloth. Just on the fence here.

I you like what you see in the BWM official M3 configurator than you will like it in real life as the two are pretty close.
