Help Me Choose My Color Combo- Need Some Feedback

Hey Guys,

This is going to be my 3rd post on here. If all goes well I should have my 2011 M3 ordered by next week, possibly the week after at latest. I'm in the process of selling my IS350 on ebay and am hoping I can get around what I'm looking for it. See Link-

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lexus...spagenameZWDVW

In the meantime, I've pretty much figured out every package I want. However I'm having a really hard time on deciding with what color combo I want to go with.

Everyday I seem to be liking a different color. However I think that they rank at-
1. Alpine White on Red (Major drawback..my brother in a different state has the exact combo)
2. Melborne Red on Red/Black (possible drawback.. i don't know if I can do red again, although I think Melborne red looks amazing)
3. Metallic Grey on Red (caught my eye of late. and that combo imo is classy)

I plan on keeping the E92 M3 for a very long time. Being able to own an M3 was a dream for me. And now that it's coming true I want to make sure I get what I want.

What do you guys think?

If you intend to keep it for a while maybe you should consider Individual Paint and Leather.

I think Silver Grey on Rust Brown Individual with Piano Black Trim would be amazing!!!!

I was thinking the same. Maybe its the fact that the car is RHD, so he's further away (and therefore smaller) than your brain thinks he should be. Either way, nice ride and interesting photo.

I haven't seen this combo but I personally really want space grey with bamboo beige and CF leather trim. Something in my head says this would look amazing

I like Gray/Red.

But +1 to the above post, if you get black, resale may be higher.

You going with CF roof or Sunroof?

Another vote for SG/FR. It's what I got and I love it. Fantastic combo.

Out of all three of your choices, I pick Melbourne Red on Black.

I think that looks the most aggressive & 'racy'.
