I thought there was a set of full reds FS on this forum somewhere would that red be too far off colorwise? I think mid matching red would be a deal breaker for me if I were in your shoes. That's why I sold my Performance Wheel with red stripe because the stripe didn't match my red seatbelts. Haha! #OCDisLIFE

I've only ever seen a single red sportster for sale here, but it was more of a salmon red and not in the best condition

A mismatch from fox red would be a deal breaker for me. Your seats appear to be in good condition?

Yes they are. The Recaros are much more comfortable and have more support though, that's why i prefer them.

if you want to spend a "lil" extra then a company, like IND, can reupholster the seats

A red alcantara middle would be beautiful on those Recaros. Along with some stitching.

I don't think those seats look bad at all. If the red matches. Pull the trigger and let me know so I don't have to guess .

Thanks!

In regards to the switch from 6MT, honestly I just wanted something different. I loved the 6MT, but after driving some friend's DCT cars, I felt that the DCT just "worked better" with the high revving V8 and not only sounded better (personal opinion) on upshifts and downshifts, but just worked so effortlessly in all conditions. Also, I wanted something that was easier for the wife to drive if necessary. I haven't really had any regrets at all choosing DCT over manual this time around, so i'm happy with the switch.

The Recaro red would have to match awfully close or it'd drive me nuts.

Lets see some pics with the X5 stablemate! Lovely his and hers.

Yea agreed which is why I've been hesitant to pull the trigger. I'm thinking I'll snag some all black vinyl and just reupholster down the road. UNLESS, i can find some that are already a bit beat up, and just get them done right off the bat.

Ahh, good eye! Will post some pics soon. Just purchased the car for the wife from my parents who were the original owners and moved into a Model X, had to snag the X5 as it matched so well to my M3
