I had black in my last two cars, and oyster in my current one. I was skeptical at first, but it's not as bad as I thought to keep clean if you make a small effort, and it is definitely cooler after sitting in the sun.

I've never liked red myself - seems like an unnatural color for cowhide. I've seen black cows and brown cows, beige cows and white cows. Never red, green, or blue cows. :-)

But that's just me. To each their own.....(and yes, I know they are all dyed)

My situation exactly - the beige leather interiors in my '99 E46, '03 Z4, and '07 E91 were/are given a conditioning with Zymöl Treat 3 or 4 times per year and look great.

I have the Beige Dakota Leather in my car and personally its really the only color I think that would look right in the car (outside of Saddle). But my circumstances are different as I am probably one of few with an E90 with Deep Green Metallic exterior. It doesn't get overly dirty, but it will not wear/age as nicely as like Black would. But find the car you like! Your gonna spend most time inside of it!

Beige interior is not for me. I prefer saddle brown. I have black dakota, with jet black exterior. That's my preference.

Dude, dying a cow is just plain mean.

Beige isn't my favorite color, but I do like the beige/blue combo- go for it!

For me, one of the things that sets BMWs apart from the crowd is that they actually offer interesting interior colors. 95% of the cars out there have beige, black, or gray interiors. Brown, Chestnut, Red, or even Oyster are DIFFERENT. If you are going to get beige, might as well just get a Camry. Plus I too hate that if you get beige, EVERYTHING in the car is beige - would be better if it was two-tone like the more interesting colors. Same with gray.

But ultimately, what does it matter what the rest of us think? If you like it, buy it!

Assuming you're excluding the black steering wheel, dash, and wood trim?

Beige is pretty boring aside from the dash view, which has nice contrast. Only gripe I have is that the previous owner scuffed nearly everywhere which is very noticeable (white behind the beige). Generally it seems the interior is made of very poor quality materials that are easily damaged beyond repair.

Don't like Beige, plus it can stain easily, but it's not as austere which is a +.

The probably with the beige interior is that EVERYTHING IS BEIGE. It's a sea of beige.

I love my oyster because the seats are white and the rest is black. It has contrast. Plus, the seats look like theyre floating

I dislike beige interiors, but this is your car and not mine. If you're the one writing the check/making payments, buy what you like and don't worry about what anyone else thinks.
