What do people think of this interior colour on a silver E90 M Sport?

Saddle brown isn't it? Doesn't do it for me.

I like cinnamon brown but that's a bit to much of a shit-brown for my liking.

not to my taste, coral red piano black trim or saddle brown with black trim looks good!

Is it an LCI? If so the colour is either Red/Brown or Saddle Brown. It's hard to tell in the photo above.

Mine's got red/brown with silver exterior (below) and the standard M sport ally trim, not the brushed one (whatever its called). Looks great IMO, always get + comments, sharp and modern, not a 'traditional colour' at all.

It's much more red than brown, and the light/white stitching looks great against the light trim.

Its hard to tell with electronic photo's, as with many shades they never show it correctly.

Not my cup of tea. But each to their own.

For me, it's the modern (aluminium and the like) vs the more traditional (brown / cream) leather colours. The traditional leathers need either black or one of the wood effect trims. The silver and black more modern leathers work well with the aluminium in my opinion.

I looked at putting the silver coloured leather (dakota is it) in mine and it clashed with the aluminium trim (brushed) so I went with black instead. Also it's easier to keep looking clean.

Either way, it's a great car so if you like it then go for it. All the best.

Yours looks great.

I think the car I am looking at is pre-facelift. I think you would have to look at it in the flesh to make a final judgement, but as it is in Dundee that's a long way to go!!!

I think it looks a bit too 'brown' for me. Doughboy's colour is more 'red' which looks better from where I'm sat. The silver seems to highlight the brown colour too much; I've seen really nice combos with that brown 'saddle?' leather but on a black car.

All that said, if you can check out a car with that colour combo more local to you, then worth it to see it in the flesh; not sure I'd be travelling to Dundee to see it though!!!

Ewww, not for me but there are people that like that sort of thing so each to their own.

I think the car in the photos is pre-LCI. No bonnet ridges and smaller mirrors are the clues I can see, but might be wrong

Well spotted - in that case its 'Terra' dakota leather.

A certain Cornish member on here has it on his BigD tourer, it goes well with his smoking jacket - no doubt he'll be along to defend it shortly........

I really like the Terra on this car (http://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=14519), just not convinced about it on the silver car.

I any case I have found a similarly priced Le Mans Blue with Lemon and Sat Nav, which I think I am going to go for.
