Do you wish you had a different color combo?

So i bumped into some forum members tonight at the gym. Of course we got to talking cars, etc. Someone commented how they wished they had AW...and we determined we basically ALL wish we had a different color!

Wondering who else is in the same boat??? If so...what do you have and what do you wish you had?


I'll start...

I do love my AW...but i would lovvvve to have IB/Rust or FR or MCB/Black... I'd even consider SSII/FR.

I guess i'm in a blue mood these days.

the grass is always greener... if I could do it again, I'd still probably go with AW, but I'd think real hard about Silverstone or Jet Black.

Nope, i would still order the same combo. I would think hard about paying extra for rust brown leather though. Tempting.

Obviously I wish I chose an individual color, I can afford it too. Also I had a 2005 M3 with the same color combo. I'm so pissed I didn't do individual paint and contrast stitching, would have been soooo pretty!!!

I love my grey+fox red combo.... but I'd always take a nice Interlago Blue with Black interior. Or a nice BMW individual color like Moonstone or Estoril.

MR/fox would be nice.

Interlagos or lemans over some type of dark brown would go nicely. Monte carlo would be nice too, but wouldn't pay individual prices.

Yes. I had SG which I liked, but I got a bit disenchanted when I saw a new AW ZCP. So I switched

probably would have kept black on cf interior but gone with either:

-custom order titanium silver (boring i know) exterior
-jet black exterior
-space gray exterior

i currently have jerez black. it's ok, but is a bit blue for me.

I have the one year only Sparkling Graphite (2008 MY) over fox red. Great color and for those who don't love the contrasting roof, the roof blends in nicely. Pretty invisible to cops too.

If I had to do it again I would have done Interlagos and Fox Red. I was too worried it would clash but I regret it a little now. I got black interior and it's still very classy and probably easier to sell in the future.

i bought my car used so had limited choice, but while i love the exterior (space grey), i would not have minded a lighter interior color instead of black. love the wood trim however.
