I saw the 135i show car with SGM and coral, and it looked pretty good.
but SGM is not my kinda thing...

I love it already... the manager who said that's exactly what his new M3 looks like actually had that combo before, on a 3 series, then kept the red leather and got a white car to go with it... then back to black adn red..
so I don't think the love for it wears out for some people...

it's a personal thing, I guess.

I can't wait!

yeah, I think the red breaks up the interior quite nicely. for the people who have see that red; is it a deeper shade or is it kinda bright? I know pictures don't do any color justice.

check out some of thepics from users whohave taken delivery... there are some in there with red and it reproduces it faithfully, IMO

I'd say darker than brighter.

I think black is timeless! If you want your car to always look like it's black glass, then ya it's a pain. For me, even when it's not looking like black glass, it's still the classiest looking colour.

For the winter, just run it through the touchless washer and your good to go.

Go with what you like, a car should be about emotions. Also, the more you like it the more you take care of it - washing won't be like a chore but therapy
