Crimson Red w/terra?

What do you all think about Crimson Red w/terra interior? I love terra but wonder if Crimson would go well with it.

Brown(Terra) should go with CR. The Terra does look a little red. Brown has red in it, along with yellow and a little blue.

I personally don't think it's a great match. Sure, brown contains some red in its ingredients, but that doesn't assure a good-looking combination. Often, a contrast is better. For example, there are many combinations, such as SGM or TiAg with Coral that look good together but don't share color ingredients.

So, it's the overall appearance that either appeals to you or it doesn't. But, while Jeff is right about red being a component of brown, it doesn't guarantee you that it will ultimately be a look you particularly like. As I see it, I am sure that black would look better inside Crimson and that Tera is better suited to other exterior colors.

I think it would be a little clashy, but not awful. Black, Taupe, or Savannah Beige would be the best choices for crimson red IMO.

Na... red/black, red/beige, red/grey even is a better match.

I'd say Lemon with CR would look amazing. Its personal preference, but I don't think having two red-toned colours would look spectacular next to each other...Just my opinion though.

I am so hooked with Coral red, I would probably still get Coral with Crimson. But black would be best. I am just tired of black interiors. Just from having so many. Need a change. Too bad BMW doesn't offer a dark grey leather. That would be sweet IMO.

Jeff,
Lately, I think of you when I think of Coral. :smile:

Get Savanna Beige. Terra should be alright though if you really love the saddle brown colour.

I think it would look pretty good, but I think beige would look better.
