"Euro" seat bottoms have the center detail (and bolsters are slightly higher). US cars get the plain seat bottoms from the regular 3-series. May have something to do with air bag sensors.

Pic Request Le Mans Blue with Fox Red Interior

Still trying to figure the right color combo for my upcoming ED order so after going through the threads I don't think I've seen any Le Mans Blue with Fox Red Interiors. Can anyone provide a nice side shot with doors open so I can see how this looks. I'm also considering AW of course and SG but I know how they look. Thanks in advance.

That's no Interlagos, that's Le Mans.

(That's why it is in the Official Le Mans Blue thread. )

Well, you'll have to use your imagination I suppose. No such pics exist that I have seen, as this color combo is extremely rare and, generally speaking, quite disliked by most (not me though - I think its great). I assure you though, that the leather colors and paint colors are genuinely the exact same for all body styles of M3.

Edit: you know what - I take that back. The press pics for the '09 M3 debut were Le Mans on Fox Red. However, I don't recall there being any shots showing the exterior and interior together. You could search and find out though.

Couple of pics I took of the interior... I think they fairly closely represent the true color of Fox Red.

Awesome color indeed. I am starting to regret about not ordering FR lol. Mine is going to be black novillo. Perhaps it's a boring color but whatever.

Awesome. I can't, for the life of me, figure out why I had such a hard time deciding on the trim before I bought. Right now, I wouldn't go any other way. I originally wanted Sycamore Anthracite Wood with Fox Red...thought that would look classy, but I'm so glad I didn't go there after I finally saw some real pics, hehe.

I got the roundel from an eBay seller named Euro Body Kits. Last time I checked they were not selling these though. I would search for "Full Carbon Fiber Roundel" to find other sellers who might have it. Many sell ones with only CF on the interior portion, and not all the way around.

Good luck!

I remember some exhanges w/ you on being brave about Ext FR + CF leder and, so glad you did not go Anthracite (looks good w/ Bamboo). You chose well, my friend

Since we're both here and on Bimmerfest I cant remember where we had that conversation, LOL. But wherever it was, I'm glad we did since the combo is awesome and I can't see going with any other one now
