I love AW. That being said, I like many colors of the M3, but buying is different..

No regrets here, but I have not seen MW in the "flesh".

I went with a combo that I have only seen done a few times, so while AW/FR seems to very popular, I did not want to get what everyone else seemed to be selecting.

Didn't have the patience to order and wait so I picked from what the dealer had on lot. The only one with the major options I had to have (DCT, Nav, iPhone) was jet-black. I like it but I don't love it especially that the interior is black too. I would've ordered SG with Saddle leather interior.

Since I have an 08', I'd probably want Sparkling Graphite over Fox Red interior.

If I were to buy a new one, I'd probably get Interlagos Blue over Rust or Black.

I wouldn't change anything about the color combo that I got, it looks good and unique in that there are not that many all red E9xs

I would definately change from Bamboo interior to Black. My driver's seat got stained by a belt within a month of buying the car.

And the MR paint is so soft it swirls with a strong wind.


Every so often I think I would rather have SG/Fox, MW/Fox, or SS/Fox. Maybe next time.

funny how this came up.... i have had always had a white car. Seems to look good on JDM cars, not saying it doesnt look good on BMW but i then realized that WHITE is BMW color choice. When i had JDM cars white is always so hard to get but for some reason not for BMW. Every dealer on the lot got white so i decided to get MR. freakin rare and not a lot on the lot or meets. then i decided to get the extended fox red interior cant go wrong with all read you know.

I liked my E92 IB/Bamboo Beige/Carbon combo on my '09 so much that I just took delivery of a '11 with the same color combo (in fact it has the same options plus ZCP).
