Interlagos Blue with Red Interior, opinions?

I posted about color choices earlier...what is your opinion of interlagos blue with the red interior. I'm sure you guys have seen the S5's with this color combination, but their blue is different. Would it look too "car out of a cereal box"ish?

that would be interesting,

Never seen it, it might require a custom order since didn't think you are allowed that by combo on normal builds.

To me IB with FR looks great, especially when done in a special way...

I actually thought of getting the same combo when I got my IB M3, but I went with the silver gray at the end. Although my advisor would have done anything that I wanted, she advised me to think about one day if I was to sell the car, could it be just a little harder to sell. It's really your call, the pictures above do look great. I am very happy and comfortable with IB and silver gray.

Is that a BMW original configuration? Or the standard two tone?

Nah, the red just doesn't make it with the blue.

It does, but I can't help but picture this when I think about it:

I went with the Fox Red/Black combination interior with my Interlagos Blue M3. I think it looks great. In person, the Fox Red is not a bright red, but more a mix between red & brown, like a brick color. I prefer the two tone interior over either all black or all red. I don't have any pics, but I looked at the same color combination on the Individual interior shown above. The color on the passenger side door panel & door handle are closer to the true color than the brighter shade in the rest of the photo. You should be able to find a Fox Red car in another exterior color before placing the order if you're concerned.
