Congrats Garry, nice combo
Fox Red really livens up the interior and makes it seem somehow special; an excellent choice.
Those pictures BTW are awesome!!

Hope too your Little Disk is working well in the new ride.

I tested the disk today Geri and it's working !, mostly using an iphone atm though will try some blind tests to see if the direct USB sounds better

Went for a spin this afternoon and got another photo

Great looking car GarryF, I have the exact combo out and in. I love it as well. I think the SSII looks the best and sets off the look of the darker colored 18's. Simply beautiful!!!

Concerning the FR with the SSII, I have gotten nothing but comments on how the combo looks. I think it is a timeless color combo to be honest. The early Porsche 550 Spyder , 356 Speedster, and 911's came with the like color combo, the Mercedes Gullwing was offered in this color combo, the Jaguar XKE's were offered in this combo as well, not to mention many more great cars from great manfucturers.

Yeah, I'm really pleased with the colour too, the FR is quite dark and has a very high quality feel about it, stiching on the door handles etc is ecellent. I've had the same comments all week about it too, everyone really likes it.

It still hasn't rained since I got the car, that's 7 straight days of sunshine which is pretty unheard of in Scotland, that's one of the good things about Florida, you don't get the rain and dark nights for 9 months of the year

Tried a few pics tonight as the clouds have arrived, it's actually really hard to capture both inside and outside accurately, expose for one and the other is blown out/too dark

I think this is pretty accurate for the fox red, with a little bit of the SSII around the door


After having it for a week I'm really pleased with it, everyone that's been in the car has actually said something about how it's a really nice colour leather, black is boring !!

Did you go extended?

Great to hear everyone is digging the combo when they see in person. I am still waiting to see IRL. Going with SSII and now am leaning towards black. But I still love the thought of FR. I had a Mini that was silver with Lapis Blue interior and it made the car. Splash of color inside can really make silver strong. I have heard that the hues clash between SSII and FR. You are obviously not seeing that and that is encouraging.

Thanks for posting and I look forward to hearing more after you have had it long term.

Beautiful car. I was really not a fan of the 18s until I saw them on your car, they are really slick!

I just love the color combination! And the e92M3 does look good with 20" wheels. My decision came down to AW on FR or SSII on FR. Ultimately I chose white as I have owned 3 silver BMWS. Both colors are easy to care for and show off the car's body contours.
