FR interior on SSII with blk/ performance seats

I have an 2009 Silverstone metallic exterior with extended fox red interior. Want to buy a set of BMW performance seats but don't know if I can justify spending the extra money on getting them upholstered in fox red leather.

Basically the two front seats would be black and backseats/doors/extended leather dash would all be rox red leather. Would this look bad? Has anyone seen this interior set up? If so please post a pic.

I only have 1 Performance seat installed but you can see the contrast with FR interior. Link in my sig.

It'll look fine as there is a two-tone fox red and black interior combo from the factory now.

Hey, it's OEM BMW, right??

I've often though about it but I would definitely have to do the red if I got the seats. I mean the FR is something that I ordered on the car so to remove such a large portion of it would be too much IMO.

Saw a couple of performance seats done fox red. They look amazing but I'm sure it's really expensive to get them covered in the leather. Do you happen to know approximately how much the two from seats covered in leather would cost?

Pics anyone?

If the car is a dedicated street car I would say just stick with stock. FR Performance seats are really sick but so expensive. SS/FR looks so nice.

Think they were around $11k or a little more.

I'm planning on doing the same with my silver novillo interior and would love to see some pics, real or photoshopped, of how they look before I pull the trigger.
