X5 Interior color Poll

This link from Xbimmer.com shows a post with pics of what I would have gone for if I were to get the X6 (Black/red). However, due to limited rear visibility in the test drive, Iím back on the X5 bandwagon (I know Iím flip flopping). I think this color combo is excellent and would love for BMW to offer the red interior on the X5 to. By show of vote, what do X5world members think of this interior.

Hopefully a good show of support could impact the 2009 year modelÖ

Red interior really gives it an upscale look. May not be for everyone. But I think it looks great with Black or White cars. Saw an M3 with it. Wicked! Fine for the X5 too.

Red is too sporty for the X5, especially a bright red.

I liked the Fox Red I believe they call it in the M3... this looks good too.

Depends on exterior color. With Vermillion red, it will be too much red. But will look good with dark colors and TiAg or Spacegray.

Chateau is a good color, IMO. Its dark enough to not be "rocket red" but still look extremely classy. However, they would need to do a chateau/black. No more "odd color" carpet.

BMW, Audi, Mercedes and Porsche all offer red interiors in at least some of their cars. I think it looks fantastic with the right exterior color. I would not hesitate to buy a black/red X5.
