Question Black Sapphire vs. Mineral Grey (4 Series)

I keep going back and forth between these two and I can't make up my mind on which to go with..

I'll see a video or photo of one of them and just instantly change my mind.

Either would be paired with Coral Red interior; anyone in the same predicament or have input?

Try to see it in person if you can. When I was ordering, I wanted the mineral gray, but my significant other wanted black. We went with black, and I was glad for it when I saw a mineral gray a few weeks later. It's not bad, but I think the black just looks better.

MG with CR interior would be very nice. Or the darker (saddle?) brown.

Yeah grey and red is sexy! I would only do CR interior with either grey or EB2, but they both look fantastic!

Hi all, my first post!
Disclosure, got 435i coming w/ black + CR interior
Saw MG in person, did nothing for me. I feel like i'd have to be 40+ for MG, but that's just me. I think black metallic with CR would look amazing + window tint.
