Fox Red- but without the extended leather...........

Actually, I would buy the extended leather pieces (dash and center console) in the Black leather and add that to the Fox Red interior.

Just my 2 cents.....

+1. Good call on the black extended leather with the basic fox red leather. Extended fox red is too much.

I was just thinking about this. If there wasn't any hue of blue in the silver, i would say foxred. However, with this slight blue tint, i would say black is a better call.

My experiences with colors other than black leather were never good.

All leather, no matter how you care for it, is going to crack and discolor over time.

Black looks best the longest IMO.. but, I know some poeple dont care about the long term look of their leather.

I've ordered mine with Silverstone II and black leather extended. I had Titanium Silver with black in my E46 M3 and it was timeless. Except for getting a sheen on the leather (due to extended use) there were no other problems. But everytime I cleaned the seats with Leatherique the sheen went off and looked like new again. I think it is a safe bet ... because other colours can become boring over time.

I tend to agree, the red would be better with SG , the blue in the Silverstone makes it a risky combo imo

Doesnt have to crack and discolour. Like most things if its cared fro properly it can continue to look great for years. I use Liquid Leather on my car seats and my Audi (red leather) has covered 30k and the seats are like new. Brilliant stuff!

Go for black with SSII - I'm so pleased I went for this colour combo. Fox Red was my initial choice but I'm glad I changed my mind.

Fox red all the way, altough not the extended version, that is a litlte bit to much IMO.

Black is not bad, but after several cars with black leather, it is boring, so the Fox Red is a nice change, and off course a more than beautifull color IMO

This thread needs a poll. As for me, I choose Black. Red is awesome and very impressive in the M3. But I just feel like it would be too much in an every day car. Black always provides a cool clean environment, might be a little hotter in the sunlight though.

Black- Definately Black. Someday you will try to sell this car and IMO it will sell easier/sooner with Black even though the Red is more unique

In my view, black is boring in the M3, you should take another color to 'lighten up' the interior of the car.

I have seen the black, not extended, and was very disappointed.

If you take black, take at least the extended one.

By the way, i have chosen AW / palladium silver.
