: : I want to know peoples top three choices for exterior/interior color combinations. Here are mine:
: : Note: Envisioning this on 2dr coupe with 17" rims.
: : #1 without a doubt, undisputed and undefuted is ...
: : (drum roll please)
: : Steel Blue on Black Leather
: : Here is why: Steel blue is just a kick ass color. You can look all around and one would be hard pressed to find another car sharing the same color. Black Leather on the inside because it brings out more of the silver in the paint. Also gives the car a more serious feel. Lastly the xenon lights are practically the same shade as the steel blue which makes for one stunning vehicle in the early evening hours.
: : #2 Black on Black W/ maple wood throughout the interior. It creates a serious yet sweet looking ride. I was getting some serious stairs, when I test drove a black on black 328ci. The BMW black is intense. The only downside is it is a bitch to keep clean.
: : #3 Titanium silver/ on black interior. I used to like this color, but I am disliking it more and more everyday. If you have not noticed, everyone and their brother is ordering this color combo. My prediction is Silver will bounce out of style quicker than Vanilla Ice. In two years, every other BMW coupe for sale will be silver in your local paper. Having said all this, I'll still give it the #3 spot.
