it's a relatively new thing but it's catching on. many automakers charge more for what is essentially the same amount of leather and the same man hours of work, i think (same amount of leather, same process, just a different color?), so that's one reason why it's not ubiquitous. also, car dealers are notoriously slow to change their ways so they stock their showrooms with the stuff that sold well traditionally.
regarding that particular color, i had contrast color black/coral red in my 135i and wanted to go with a similar shade in my M3. fox red looks quite a bit more orange than coral red, though. nothing wrong with it, and cheers if gnatty likes it, but that wasn't my cup of tea, so i went with boring all black
