This is my second car with red interior and I absolutely love it. That's a combined 6 years of red and it remains a constant source of compliments. I've also had a car with blue leather and liked that as well but the red is tops in my opinion.

I love BMWs coral red interior. I wouldn't say it's sought out, I read that it gets dirty as quick a beige/tan interior. Plus I can see people getting tired or lose it's appeal of the red quick.

But as others said, there are plenty of 335i's out there, you're bound to find one that has everything you want including black interior.

I thought the red looks horrible. I had trouble finding the right car that wasnt red. But thats just my opinion. I think my car to look good, but be subtle.

For me the red reminds me of the awful red they used to put in Ford cars and trucks from the early 90's.

When I was buying, it came down to white/tan or gray/red. I just couldn't do the red. It's too much.

Alpine white over coral red E93. I get more compliments on this car than any car I've ever owned. And contrary to a previous post, it does NOT get dirtier or as dirty as any other color. Mine still looks brand new after almost 5 years. Like anything else, you need to spend time taking care of it. And the red stays much cooler than a black interior.

Depends on the colour of the car.
On our Tiefseeblau car we have red/black interior which looks pretty cool and dynamic I would say.
