Possible Interior Trim Swap Out

**Updated Post**
Since I just found out a true coral red never came with the sedans then I would be interested still in maybe an interior trim swap out to either a carbon fiber or aluminum.
**Original Post**
Just picked up a '10 E90 with what I thought had coral red interior but turned out to be a beautiful Chestnut Brown Dakota Leather. It's more a of darker version coral red. I am debating on possibly swapping out with another member who has a mint condition coral red interior w/o heated seats since mine are mint as well. I'm also in the market to switch out my Dark Burl Walnut wood trim to either an aluminum or carbon fiber as well. I'm located in Orlando, FL. I have attached some pics of what the Chestnut Brown Dakota Leather looks like. In my opinion its more red than brown. Almost like they mixed a coral red with a little brown I'm guessing its a rare color because my BMW tech didn't even know what color it was until we pulled up the vehicle data report.

They didn't make coral red for the sedans, only the coupes and verts. Chestnut brown is the closest you're going to get, which in itself look amazing.

Ooh that makes sense! Your right it is an amazing color. I was forever searching for one with coral red and never could find it. I guess it would have to be one of those special orders that would take months to get one with a true coral red. I have no problem with my interior and absolutely love it!

No, that's chestnut brown also. That's how red it looks.

I've decided to keep my chestnut brown dakota interior. Besides it's mint as well. However I am in the market for either the aluminum or wrapping my trim with the fabric charcoal carbon fiber from pyspeed.com. What do you guys think will look best with the chestnut interior?

Bamboo or brushed aluminum is my vote.

If you're interested in me doing a wrap for you, just PM me
Much cheaper than swapping out the trim and it's reversible....
