Because I saw it as an orderable leather option in the upholstery section of my ordering menu when I was modifying

Yea I'm wavering, but it probably means switching to Montego instead of AW. Otherwise, the car would be too bland both inside & out.

^^^ I wouldn't do it, not for the cab. Coral is gorgeous.

Wish this had been an option when I ordered a few months ago.

Yea, I'm really stuck. The reason that I didn't go with Montego is because of the beige (too light) which goes well with it.

With a Cab, you really need a darker interior for the road dust/dirt. However Jade Gray will definitely be unique though.

I need lol

Coral red is plenty unique.

Or consider getting a coupe, then you can get Montego AND Jade Gray. Besides, all that sun exposure from the cab will only help the aging process. LOL

I'd love Jade but I hate the wood trims, so it would have to be alum. I think that is too light. Damnit introduce piano black!!!!

Specs will be:

E92 335i
Jet Black
Jade Gray
Gray Poplar
Comfort Access
Satellite Radio
iPod/USB
Park Distance Control
Navigation
Premium Pkg
Sport Pkg

It's like waiting for Christmas when I was 10 all over again.

As far as I know, Jade Gray is the only Priority 1 option for E92. No Piano Black or High Gloss black, unfortunately.

Lemon is a Priority 1 for the E90's and I think that is the only one as well.

Congrats Status38, sounds to be a very attractive combo, and I think good call on the grey poplar with Jade grey. Although, switching out to the black high gloss trim would be ideal. They're quite reasonably priced off Tischer. Look forward to your pics..

DIY is laid out somewhere here...its not too difficult. Folks here do trim swaps frequently. Plus when you sell your original trim, you'd offset some of the $515 outlay for the High Gloss trim...I hear gears grinding, are you exploring this option?

Yes! People buy the old trim?

Yeah, there is a market of sorts for trims. Some of the popular options include aluminum. Remember, some folks buy off the lot and the car they've just bought might not have the exact trim they prefer. Look around, I see them exchange hands anywhere from $150 to $350...
