What color interior?

On a ER 325I, what color interior would look better: Beige or Black?? With beige, I would get the wood trim and with black, I would get the alum trim...

I saw the ER/Black/Alum combo at my dealer and it looked great! That would be an ideal combo IMHO

My personal opinion, beige and wood looks more sophisticated, while black and aluminum looks more sporty. It all depends on what YOU want

What about ER/Black/Wood? I have black/black/walnut and love it. I just can't picture it on ER.

i would suggest getting the gray interior. i like the 2 tone gray and black AND the best part is that it stays cleaner longer than the black interior by far. as soon as u vacuum the carpet in the black car u will see dust and on the shifter and cupholders. dont get black i have it wow i hate it. the e90 i buy will be gray interior for sure

On Imola Red I really like this combo. Of course you would have to order an Indvidual series but.....
Actually, I don't know if the two tone thing would work on an E90. The interior shape is just wrong. Still beautiful though. (Yes it was mine until last week )

Yeah, BMWCA color choice limitations seem arbitrary to me in some ways. They'll let you have electric red with any color as long as it's black. What's with that? There's a photo on this board of an electric red/grey combo and it looks stunning IMHO. Or how about ER with terra? Or lemon?

And they don't recommend deep green and terra. Huh? Fricking green and brown! How more classic can you get? Trees have been doing green and brown for years.

no doubt definately go for the beige with wood the car looks more expensive and more airy inside as for me a black interior makes the car look dull

Is black/aluminum a choice often ordered by dealers for their stock? If not, I'm thinking black/aluminum will be less common than one might think.

I've personally never even seen an aluminum trim car at Vista, and they're the largest dealer in florida, southeast, us...whatever they claim.

edit: Apparently they claim it's the largest in the world, hmm. It isn't very big though.

And here are some combinations they recommand:

Elegant:

The leather portion looks that same as what we have here in Canada - Fluid cloth or cloth/leather is not available here, we get leatherette instead. Note that grey is not available with arctic either, yet one of the first release shots of the e91 touring shows the tailgate open on a car with just that combination. Strange indeed.

That's really interesting, thanks
It's cool to compare what their marketing strategies are in other countries.
