quick Aesthetic question: anyone with Interlagos Blue and Red Interior?

I'm a sucker for red interior, and ready to put an order for a e90 M3 sedan soon, but I haven't seen many IB with Red Novillo interiors...mostly black or bamboo.

When i was ordering my car i though about that combo Blue with red interior but for some reason it didnt go together well for me, but both colors are beautiful

If you're asking for feedback, you're probably already unsure about the IB & FR color combination. Trust your instincts. If that color combination isn't instantly perfect for you, then it's probably never going to be. And I doubt that many other people will like it either. Personally, both are great colors, but, I can't see the two together. I have an IB E92 with Novillo (Black). IB with Bambo also looks great. I couldn't see IB & FR together at all. Ultimately, it's about what makes you happy. However, I wouldn't expect much praise with the IB & FR combination.

No but I often wish I did. I love stuff that people take way too seriously and subsequently makes them hate me.

Check out monsta's car here:

I think that color combination is just super (often referred to as the "superman" combo) and that is why I ordered it (June ED). Looking at the color samples at the dealer, it actually matches well, but I can understand that it is a matter of personal taste and it will not be a common combination.

If you just want to configure your car for resale, well, don't buy one to begin with .

What is everyone's opinion on the resale value of this combination? You think it would have an effect?

Let's see, purple-ish paint with an interior with an orangey hue.... No thanks. The red in the 1-series is a truer red and the blues used, LMB and MB, don't go all purpley out of sunlight and work FAR better than IB and FR.

I'd suggest heading to the dealer and spending some time with their sample paint and interior swatches before deciding.

Who do you think would buy a second hand clown car, regardless of what KBB says the car is worth? It's a terrible combo imho and a dealbreaker off that bat for 99% of the people looking to buy a used M3.

It is a deal breaker for 99% of the people looking to buy a new M3 too.

And for the other 1% it is exactly what they want. No reason to expect the demand to be different among used car buyers than new car buyers. Will it be harder to sell? Maybe. Maybe not.

I think a dark blue like Jerez is more

classy w fox red IMO. The Ib on fr will get attention if that's what ur after.

Jerez is black.
