Favorite Color Combo??

Wondering what color combo you would order. I saw a red on red M3 and it looked killer IMO. I would love to see a Z with that combo.

Mein Auto: 2009 Z4
I pick up my jet black with black leather and ash trim a week from Monday in Muinch (ED). It is a 30, and while I did not plan this, I love the look of the 30 vs 35 in black due to the dark grille and lower vents/ports. Now I just need to paint out the back of the roll bar covers.

Someone on Zpost got a black/ivory/off-white car that looks great. I also like the Silver Gray/red combo.

Saw a jet black with coral red interior and the new shade of coral red appears more orange in tone. Also saw a TiAg with black. Thought the car would look great in AW with Coral Red but not after seeing the coral red interior. Preference now would be Deep Blue or Crimson Red with Black or Ivory White

I am jealous, perhaps I need to trade my '03 too, and I really want to do ED. I am thinking 30i space grey on black with sport package if I leased, but add premium if I bought it. Or Mojava and ivory but I dont like that extra cost of ivory. Mojava is closest to the old sterling grey because it has the brown hue. I am not really a fan of space grey, too light, and black is too heavy imo.

I'd like to be ordering Deep Sea Blue (metallic)/Coral Red extended leather, with PP, SP, CW, DCT & 19" wheels, plus a few other options.

All similar to this, save for the color:

mine's red on red. too loud of a color combo - i don't drive fast and i've been pulled over at least 3 times for going less than 7 mph over the limit. i only picked it up because it had a good pricetag.

They don't call it "arrest me red" for nothing!

The other shade, particularly on Ferraris, is "resale red"

there is a color thread on another site that shows the z4s in different colors, after looking through those for hours on end I have to say that the marketing color of Deep sea blue has come out on top and is my favorite.. those marketing guys know what they are doing!!

Alpine white with any interior rocks. I like beige for functionality. I know many others prefer red. I think red is a bit trendy and feels cheap but that an opinion.

Here are some photos of my Z-4 - Extended leather is just more leather instead of vinyl - leather on the dash, and doors - also near the window on the doors - if just Kansas Leather - its just in certain areas -

enjoy the photos -

Do they cover the entire dash with leather?

I believe the X6, 5 series, 6 and 7 series cover the entire dash, but using different colors, black in some areas and red in others. I wasn't sure if that applied to the Z4 as well, or if they covered only the lower half.

The Dash is mostly Black same with the top door sills - The red leather is just the lower dash, seats - and some door trim - Extended leather just means instead of Vinyl they put leather - black and red (in my case) -

Yeah. . . . right.

And those really, really huge wheels are a nice touch, too. Did those come from a 1-ton pickup four wheel drive, because those look soooo right for each other?
