Ordering my 335 this week; need some help with color choices!

First, I want to express my thanks for this site and the information within; excellent resource!!!

I am going to get either one of the blacks or Monaco Blue and need to figure out which interior to go with. I am not getting black and my wife has an E46 330i with light gray , so I am not getting light gray. Therefore, it is down to Cream Beige or Saddle Brown (the red is nice but too much for me for a daily driver). I will get the beige if I go with the Blue, but am not sure if I go with Black (which i am leaning towards). Does anyone have any pics of the Saddle Brown with the two natural wood trims? I have seen the pics on the site with the aluminum and the gray wood, but am looking for pics with the light popular and the burled walnut. I saw some pics with one of the natural woods on the Saddle Brown thread but they are difficult to get a feeling for (not great angles).

Thanks in advance!

Get Saddle Brown with Monaco Blue!! That's a SWEET combo! Beige has too much bright yellow in it and a little feminine for my taste.

Search under "E92 Configurator Pics" and you will eventually see various interior choices. The photos to which I think you are referring to showed a black coupe with saddle brown + light poplar. I don't think this was the right trim choice to go with saddle - the wood looked too yellow. However, I think the walnut will look much better with saddle. I hope so - that's what I have chosen for my future machine. Like you, I have gone back and forth between creme beige and saddle; I felt that saddle will be much easier to keep looking clean. Also, the carpets, door sills and rear parcel shelf will be black - more practical and less glare in the rear area.

Thanks for the opinions!! I agree re: the dark wood with the saddle; i think that is the way to go. The beige might be too light for everyday driving. I think the 6 series has that color as an option, so i will check it out.

can i see pics?

from the sound of it, the blue sounds really nice though. I really loved the E46 M3 blue. Not the smurf blue, the other one.
