I thought about the biege (had it in my E60) but it is far too common There is an air of exclusivity about the Jade I think

You miss the point Carlos. Dye the leather black so that the brushed ally then looks good.

Absolutely, brushed aluminium for beemers, "silver" for polos and skodas.
Wood is so incongruous with a "sports" car/image - I'll never understand it.

Ever see a porsche with wood in it ? Or a ferrari ? NO!

No offence to those with wood, just my humble opinion

Thanks for the adivce chaps.

Spoke to the dealer today - seems that although it said "available" on their system, someone may of already got there first - will find out tomorrow hopefully.

On the bright side, if thats the case, the hookers are back in the running

I agree - nice to have differences though - I think it's an age thing - old sports cars used to have wood. It's just not the "done" thing now.

Cant believe you are all so much against sunroofs.

I personally would not have a car unless it had a sunroof. I would trade a/c for it anyday. Even on colder days I much prefer to have the sunroof tilted and have fresh air in the cabin compared to the dried up smelly crap the aircon puts out.
Each to his own i suppose

I sort of agree with your view on A/C its of similar use as sat nav to me and I have only used sat nav in the MINI about once every 6 months.

But then again I rarely drive during the middle of the day.

Glass sunroof are there only to let some light into the cabin a metal sunroof is a waste of torsional strength

When I had the BoxsterS I thought its worst feature was the folding roof so had a Cayman been available then I would have bought one...still might but deep down I know I'd want a 997

Like you say each to his own....

Most dealers I've spoken to say that having a sunroof actual loses money on resale! Still if you like them why not??

I reckon dark poplar wood or something like the dark bamboo they do on the new X5 goes really well with cream/biege leather. Black leather with matt titanium/alu.

Wood don't go with black - local dealer had a nearly new M5 in black in and out. Looked the dogs from a distance, but as I got closer there was something really quite scary - light wood! It looked pants! Sales rep said they'd had people put deposits down on the phone, driven up from London town then run a mile when they saw the wood. They were debating whether it was worth retrimming it!

Luckily for me, my last car made nearly full asking price because someone had been trawling dealers and Autotrader for months trying to get the right 330cd with a sunroof. He flew from London to NI to get it.

I had the car sold after two days of online advertising in Autotrader.
Very Lucky

Agreed,although I would not trade A/con, like the choice, had them on all my cars,including my last E46 saloon & my current coupe.My new 335D will also have a sunroof.
Contrary to some comments, it does NOT make me a nobjockey!
It won't have wood either,my contribution to sustainability stopped when I went for diesel as opposed to petrol, besides the wood effect reminds me of Morris travellers.
If you like wood, plant a tree and hug it!
