I also opted for FR Extended... yours looks great and the steering wheel looks amazing....

I have not yet seen FR in person but I went for it all the way

When I ordered my M I really wanted the fox red but I was scared the blue from my jeans would rub off on the seats. I wear darker jeans often and always end up with blue socks, so I didn't want to deal with that issue with the seats. I went with black just to be safe cuz you can never go wrong with black. Anyone have any issues with their jeans rubbing off on their fox red seats?

A bit but not much overall.

No regrets on my Fox Red either. I ordered the non BMW Recommended Lemans Blue/ Fox Red and usually get compliments once people see it.

I only regret not going for extended leather

VERY nice combo IMO

It's a unique color that's more close to a brick red. Pops out in contrast to light colors and compliments the exterior IMO.

I'd want a SG exterior and a FR/BLK/BLK interior on my E90. I feel like if I had a FR interior and a blue exterior, I'd feel like I'm driving the "Superman" car, haha. Also, I have always felt like extended FR is a bit too much so I would go w/out the extended leather package.

No regrets. My last car had a natural leather (unique and almost orange in color for first few years until a patina sets in) and I knew I could not have another black interior after that (all my prior interiors were black and I don't like light interiors.) My M has a SSII exterior which is also a first for me (almost all of my prior cars were black) and it looks very nice with the fox interior - more so than I would have guessed and still gets compliments on a weekly basis (not that I care.)

Fox red is great interior color choice. I went with fox red/black/black for a little extra contrast. Love it!

My '08 is Jerez Black with extended FR. I love it. My '03 was Carbon Black with Cinnamon. I know......, but change is hard for me.
