Merlot Red / Black / Black w/ Alum?

What do you guys/gals think of Merlot Red / Black / Black w/ aluminum?

I haven't seen the Merlot Red / Beige / Wood in person, but I did see it with the black and it was stunning. What do you guys recommend?

Merlot Red/Black/Black with aluminum sounds really stunning (assuming you're talking about ordering a Z4? I'm a little clueless.) Maybe it's just me, but I'm having a hard time picturing wood in a car as modern as a Z4.

Get whichever one you find stunning...

I prefer the black to the beige, but I'm not going to be the one looking at it every day.

Two pics of merlot/beige that were posted on the net (not mine).

There are a couple of Merlot Z4s running around town here and I have to say that this color really seems to work for them.I'm sure the black would look good but dark interiors with roadsters can cause some second degee burns when you get in wearing shorts.

I was tossed between Merlot and Black as well.. I finally came to my senses and ordered it in Black! After looking at a few Merlot Z4 pics, it looked like my fathers Maroon Park Avenue!
