Interlagos Blue w/Red or Bamboo?

Which extended leather interior would you choose with Interlagos Blue?

I'd go Performance Package, so assume those rims.

I have a Carbon Black E46 M3 with Cinnamon interior and love the combination, so I was thinking Fox red, but in some of the pictures I've seen the Fox Red looks far more red than my cinnamon.

Either way I'm leaning strongly towards the Anthracite trim. I like that look much better than the other two options.

My current car:

I think the bamboo looks great with Interlagos Blue myself, very clean looking.

Get rust brown! It's the closest thing to cinnamon.

I've seen the bamboo with AW and liked it and think it would look great with the Interlagos blue as well.

IMO Bamboo looks best over FR with IB paint.

I have extended black and my only gripe/regret is that it all blends together too much. However, extended leather is nice to the touch. I would say bamboo or FR.

mmmmm your old car looks great!

Fox red is not a bright red. It's more like an rusty brownish orange/red.
Pictures are awful to tell what a color shoudl look like, especially Fox Red. Having seen the old cinammon in person, I'd say Fox Red isn't too far off, and certainly closer than Bamboo, as well as looking more unique. In case you can't tell from my recommendation, I have Fox Red, though my paint is Sparkling Graphite.

I've got bamboo with my my JB and I love it. Wanted to go rust brown but the estimate I got from the dealer for Individual interior on 2011's was prohibitive.

The Fox Red isn't like Imola Red where its really bold. I've seen IB/FR... looks awesome and different from any other combos out there.

i'd go with black leather, but then you won't need extended.

+1 Great choice!

Second, while I love my FR if I had IB I'd go Bamboo. The other 'Superman' combo looks a bit 'much' to my sensibilities.
