Alpine White or Black Sapphire Metallic both look great with Coral Red. Jet Black is harder to maintain than Black Sapphire Metallic. Plus it keeps the car cooler in the summer. Jet Black is A) black and B) not metallic so the car will get cooking hot in the summer.

I would go black if you don't mind keeping it clean. You see way more aw/cr cars than black ones.

And I'll recommend the 6 speed, hands down.

Really pleased with my Coral Red on my white F30. I was also a bit nervous after seeing bright red pictures on early F30's on this website, but in reality its slightly darker. Plus the ambient lighting, when turned up to max, really reflects well off the red leather at night.

Love my Red Leather!!

When I first looked at BMW's about 11 years ago, it came down to two coupes. Bothe were 2000 328CI's and both were silver. One had a coral interior, and one had the aero body kit. The body won me over, but I've loved BMW's coral red interiors ever since.

So, when I ordered my new M-Sport, I got my body kit AND coral red interior all in one car! I absolutely love it, it's interesting and different, it's luxurious and sporty, is a deep brick red as others have noted (not bright like you see in pictures) and, coupled with a sedate exterior (MG, SB, AW, GS, etc.) makes for a very stunning vehicle. I consistently get compliments on the color combination.

Mine goes to the tint shop tomorrow, and afterwards I'll post some pics of my 335i with it's stage one modifications completed. And yes, she's MG/CR!

Garage List

Initially when I started to do a build for my 335, I was building estoril with the m sport package. My last 335 was montego with grey interior and I loved it then, but wished the interior were less boring. I am not too excited about the m sport package, because I feel that m parts belong on m cars. Anyhow, I liked the color combo of estoril with coral red interior, but I am a 35 year old dentist and despite being fun, I want to be more low key these days.

So, I looked at other colors. My wife loves white, the alpine white that is. WHite is soooo boring though. I didn't much like it AT ALL, UNTIL I put the red seats in it. At that point it hit me. I couldn't find another color combo that looked more elegant while retaining a sporty demeanor. Unlike other colors white also has the advantage of being able to blend in when you don't want to attract attention, the down side is the opposite of that statement. Pairing the white with the sport package gave a lot of high contrast black and then I carried the gloss black in through the interior instead of the aluminum trim to complete the effect. The red from the tail lights is repeated in the seats which are visible from the outside. THe whole car is basically only three very clean high contrast and bold colors. It should be very sharp and tasteful. All in all though, I feel the coral red interior will make the car, not the exterior color.

Oh, and I don't think I will tint either. Gotta show those seats off.
