So my dealer called and they are getting a starfire on Caramel in by mid august.

I'll be over 20 weeks of waiting by the time it arrives, and I don't think I can wait any longer. One reason being I hit a deer with my M3 and that's in the body shop for another few weeks. Odds are it'll be totaled and I'll need a new car.

Does anyone have this color combo that could possibly help me get an idea what the two together look like? Do you wish you had another color interior? I would think this combo would be amazing in the summer to help keep the car cool.

This one has option package C (NV, ZC, AN). Of course it's not leather and no LED headlights. Two things I specifically wanted :(. It may be time to compromise. The price is a little more then the one I ordered, but my dealer said he'll match our original arranged price and discount it to where I'll be happy.

Thanks guys. Hopefully I may actually get one of these unicorn's.

IMO, Caramel looks best with the white exterior. The really nice thing about the Caramel or Ecru (which I have) is that it is a two-tone interior. Whereas the black interior (leather or Nuluxe) is only black, you get black panels on the dorr and with the black dash top on the lighter colored interior, it looks richer in my opinion. Caramel would have been my first choice interior but like you, I took what the dealer had. I too wanted LED lowbeams...however, I did get NAV and happy I did. Haven't used the NAV itself yet but like the display for everything else. I'm not sure what your codes make your car out to be but if you can, add the light up door sills. I went out a couple of times with other couples and my wife and people always comment on those...they do look great at night.

Opposite happened to me

What about white with black interior? I wanted the caramel interior but a black one came in and was offered to me.
Black interior on Starfire Pearl was my first choice, but I took the caramel after seeing it. Like baxter57, I've found that the caramel interior is one of the main features friends have commented positively on. I'm happy with it.

Thanks for the heads up guys. Baxter57, post some pictures up!!! I want to see what it looks like. Especially a traditional shot, like through an open window looking in. Does the "3 tone" stand out at all? I noticed it in a picture right away, especially where the B pillar meets the bottom of the window's. The grey/black/Caramel all meet, and it looked odd. I'm assuming that was just because it was a picture with that spot being a semi-focal point.

I think white with caramel is the best combo! I so wish here in Canada we could get much choice of color in nuluxe than only black! Sometime I think I should wait next year and buy a used American Ct with combo I want!

Or just hang on a little longer. With the 2012s just around the corner and production increasing maybe you will start to see some variety. Here's hoping
