As mentioned before just get whatever seems best value for money if going 2nd hand
Colour is probably one of the most, if not the most important property of a car when it comes to 'value for money' try shifting an interlagos blue or melbourne red m3...

Space grey is probably the most boring BMW colour at the moment. +1 for graphite.. but I'm biased towards graphite anyway

I would agree that space grey is the most conservative (read refined) colour in the bmw palate, closely followed by graphite. Further enhanced with msport black gloss trim, colour coded m3 style spoiler and splitters finished off with a set of hyper black VB3's. All style, but then again if you are after a ricey boy racer look there is always a selection of loud colours to choose from

I'm 50:50 either - both are great - but I think sparkling graphite was discontinued a few years ago which is why you won't see many. Coral red would be a good combo interior with those 2 paints

The red leather is just wrong. Too bright, it looks kinda nice when you see it through tinted windows though.

Fox red that is, sorry not coral red.

The red leather sounds feral, but is great in person, on both white and dark coloured paints. I have a friend that said the same thing about "red" leather, saw it, then bought it on his new 335.
