I cant even begin to like the exterior and while Im a fan of red guts; this combo is not good.

That customer has a keeper only a mother could love.

Wow! Now that's an odd color combo. Would never personally do it, but to each their own.

All it needs is some yellow alloys and it's a traffic light.

As long as the owner of this vehicle has no regrets, this car is the right car.

Love the interior. Exterior - much to think about ...

Like me, this customer is red/green colour blind. It is a very common affliction among men.

Having custom ordered a M850i with full Fiona Red/Black interior obviously I'm a fan of that. However, as many have stated it does not integrate with the exterior color (some prefer that) nor positively contrast with the exterior (some prefer that along with myself). I'm sure whomever the owner is will love the car but it will be a hard sell on SwapALease if they change their mind.

For me I was interested in Verde Ermes as an exterior but passed on the $5K up charge. If I had gone down that route than Cognac or Tartufo/Black would have been the interior go to. However, now with some other feedback here on the forum regarding durability Ivory White may be the best play. Thus, if I order another BMW in the future Verde Ermes may be my choice of exterior along with Ivory White as the interior.

Verde Ermes is such a nice color for the m850i. But yes the up charge for the color sucks :/

The Java Green Metallic with Silverstone in this review (and fairly stated overall for the most part) is much nicer.

Love the green. Love the red. I also love Christmas but I'm not wearing a techno Christmas sweater all year round. With that green I would have gone with white or saddle brown interior.
