After I went on my test drive of the 06 325i (2 thumbs up by the way) my salesperson brought me over to an 05 convertible (330 ci I believe) with the sparkling graphite/gray leather combination and it looked great. It will keep the car cooler in the summer. I live at the beach, but I work inland where temps can stay in the 80's to 90's and sometimes 100's during summer months. I do plan on tinting the windows though.
Wow well that's great feedback I appreciate it. Now one thing I haven't seen at ALL is a gray interior with wood trim. I have not even considered it because I don't know what it would look like and my imagination tells me not good but its not really based on any evidence.
Do you have any pictures at all of a gray leather/wood interior to share?
