Artic white e92...red or black interior?... help me choose

Okay... I've place a deposit on an 09' e92 with DCT...
I'm pretty sure that I want it in alpine white... as for the trim... carbon leather definately...
I will get it with extended leather for sure...
Now here is the problem... RED or BLACK interior?

I know what I want mechanically.. the M3 fits what I want perfect...
But I'm clueless about color matching... please help me out...ThanX!!

Do you mean Alpine White?

Personally I'd go with black. I'm just not a fan of red at all. What do you think of Silver?

I think that he means silver interior...not exterior.

Anyway, all the interior colors are nice. I didn't care for Silver that much in person, it looked very blue. Can't go wrong with black...go for Fox Red if you want to spice it up!

I'm very happy with AW with Extended Black Leather and Carbon Leather Trim. I didn't go with Fox Red because I knew I would get tired of it fast... IMHO.

i have to post here, ur making a mistake and might make another.

your first mistake is MDCT instead of 6MT
the potential mistake is the black leather. not that there's anything wrong with black leather but it'll be a tad too subtle/boring/dark inside, also IMHO.

Red is different, black is typical!
but if you go FOX RED - I would not get EXTENDED LEATHER - too much red - not classy looking!
and if you go black, the EXTENDED LEATHER is kinda useless because afterall it is black and its hard to notice!

I agree on the Fox Red comment above... I LOVE the red, but I think the extended leather is a bit too much. If you get black, why get the extended leather? It will look the same either way

My choice is going to be between Fox Red and Silver... still a hard one.

The choice is easy. Get Black, Fox red is tacky after a while.

I'm not sure red will get tacky, but if the OP is on the fence, the safe choice is definitely with black. I am not a FR fan...I contemplated palladium and bamboo for Jet black for a long time, but decided to go black in the end. it might be a bit boring, but all black is HOT imo.

ultimately, you gotta decide. go take a look at each one in person and then make your own decision. you are the one that has to sit in it everyday.

Agree except that I'm thinking of 'pimp' FR extended as it recalls BMW's history, e.g., 507.

My preference is Bamboo Beige. Surprised no-one else mentioned it. My order is for AW + BB extended + sycamore anthracite. It's a sedan, though, so I had to go with the most boring combination I could think of.

sycamore with bamboo is (i'll say it nicely) very mature and conservative. i'm not sure how old the OP is. if it was an e93, BB might be a better choice, but i don't think it looks that great with white in general. sycamore is only an option to appease the old m3 populace CF leather ftw

i think AW + BB extended is more luxury and classy, FR would be more sporty imo. I had to decide between AW+BB or AW + FR, and AW + Black would've been considered if the deal was real good. Went with the FR
