EB with Cognac?

Another color combo thread...

What are your thoughts on Estoril with Cognac? See attached. I love EB but I don't want black leather. Boring! I don't care for superman combo either. Oyster is too light.

Cognac is a bit a lux No? Does the combo strike you as "gaudy" or "a bit much" ? Black is always safe but so...blah

Anyway, chime in. Thanks!

I'm a big fan of the cognac. Definitely gives me 'luxe' vibes over gaudy. Feels like you're driving in a Louis Vuitton wallet IMO.

Most important question is do you like it with EB? If so, lock it up. I personally think it looks great. A nice unique color combo.

Sure of course at the end of the day it's up to me. I also think it looks good and it's unique.

One of the more unique color combinations. More importantly, the only person who needs to like it is ...well, you. Simply enjoy a choice which is strictly personal.

it's too bad that the got rid of the saddle brown color option. cognac is a bit "orange" for my taste in that pic, however if black is too dull then i'd rock it as there aren't too many other color choices that look nice. i think it would look better with aluminum dark carbon/pearl gloss chrome trim than whatever wood trim it has in the pic.

EDIT. or aluminum hexagon with estoril blue highlight

Definitely a lux color, I think it looks better on 5/7 series.
I would go with a lighter color on the F3x chassis

Not a fan of beige. It's like the only color that I associate with performance is black or red.
