Ordering my 2009 M3... Red with extended Fox red leather?

Hey Guys,

I am going to be ordering my new 2009 M3 shortly and I am going back and forth on the collar combo that I have chosen...

I LOVE the Red on the exterior and I LOVE the Fox red leather interior... BUT I do not want it to be a clash in reds.... I have not actually seen this collar combo on the new M3 in person on even in a picture.


What do you guys think?

Does anyone have a picture or video?


Thanks!!

How can you afford a new M3 with spelling like "Collar" ?

Red interiors are awesome and i love them, but i think red on red might be a bit too much red.

Do a different exterior color and keep the red interior, maybe a white exterior, always looks sharp?

I have the Space Gray exterior with a Coral red interior on my 335i coupe, I love the red interior I too was going back and forward but now I couldn't happier with my choice.

I have it and I think it's great. If I could order my car again, I would order it the same way and change nothing.

Seen this combo too and it was 'Ferrariesque' - one of my top 3 choices. MR looks way better in the metal.

Please...not another AW M3. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting an AW BMW these days.

That being said, I do know 2 people that also own Space Gray M3s, so who am I to talk?

IMO the best interior color for a Melb Red M3 is black, contrasts beautifully with the black CF roof.
