I like that there's more leather, but the red's too much.

Of course, I'm biased because I don't have extended. I do like it on a black interior though, more leather, no extra color. I'd have preferred they used black for the extended leather, like the trim around the shifter.
i agree with you on that. I like that the other parts are black on the reg red interior

I need to change my bland tan interior to Fox Red. I got spoiled by the Tanin Red interior in my E46

I went back and forth between extended or not... and in the end I changed
my order TO Extended Leather.... and I could not be happier about my decision.
I think it looks great, especially with AW... and I get tons of compliments
on my interior.

(Sorry about the picture size )

Gorgeous. This and the other posting of extended FR sold me, I think. BTW: what kind of steering wheel is that?

I split the difference. I love fox red, I hope they continue to offer it with the next generation. The new Sakhir is too bright for my taste.

Thanks.
As stated by many here: pics don't do the ext FR justice.
I don't think it too much red. I think it gives the car a very upscale look. The red flows beautifully with the black...

The steering is the M Perfomance Steering Wheel - it is wrapped in Alcantara and made by BMW.

^ I too went back and forth on extended FR or not, and in the end I went with extended and am super happy. I cannot imagine without it. It just works, and as stated, goes great with AW. If anyone is in doubt, go with it, You won't regret it.

Yeah, it may not be my thing because I've been living with non-extended for years, but if you get it you definitely won't regret it. Just think of all that extra leather--nice!
