Shouldn't you trust what you saw IRL more than a picture? Let alone one that is probably more flattering than reality...

Yes I should and I've been on the fence about it ever since i saw it IRL, but this picture was the clincher, I was thinking about doing what GregW/ Oregon is doing and just changing the center console and was set on this, but I'm very impulsive and just said F-It lets go for it....so now I'm getting it...

sounds like a plan...i'm also on the fence about the same dilemma - still leaning towards non extended and possibly what greg's got planned...still waiting to find out the price on that center console

I know i am going to sound very picky here but why do every photos of teh driver seat bottoms look so wrinkled and creased in the middle?

These cars are too new to show such premature wear imho. I guess the seat cushion foams they use are not very durable and bottom out very fast.

Just a thought here.

Agreed 100%, I've always thought this. It was a problem with the E46 M3 seats and it's still here apparently. Maybe being overweight doesn't help with the creases.

Just posted in the General forum (Auto123.com review). Nicest looking Fox Red I've seen -- like Cinnamon with a tan!

Someone who has Fox Red interior:

How accurate is this latest picture?

Best regards,

It's a bit washed out. Tone is OK, but it is a bit darker than the pic. The driver's door trim and front of the driver's seat (in the pic) are almost the real shade of Fox Red.

Good to know. The pics where it's washed out and orangey make me nervous, with my car in transport.

Thank you kindly. I am starting to like it more and more. The contrast to the otherwise rather "boring" interior is great, and I am tempted to change from Black to Fox as interior.

Thanks again,

CSL

Thanks X. The exposure looks good in that one. Not overexposed, making it too red, as in the interior only ones. Luving the combo with space gray.

My girlfriend took the picture of me in the driver's seat, while asaulo took the pics where the seats look semi-pink. My girl's pics are definitely the most accurate.

It looks sick with SG.

After seeing all the interior shots of FR/CF leather I realized I should not have chose the Brush Aluminum trim over the Carbon Leather!

After brooding over these color threads for weeks, I am of the opinion that Fox Red is the only color (red, beige, or silver) that looks best without the Extended Novillo option. The Red is TOO much (and almost nauseating) when it is extended.

I'm getting extended, @ first I too thought it was too much, but then I saw extended IRL and I loved it
