Interior question

My ordered 335i w/gray dakota leather just came in today and I got to see it with the seats being covered partially with plastic still before the PDI inspection but a little of the seat was exposed and it looked like the gray dakota leather was alot darker than I've seen it on others in pictures and such.Is this leather a light colored gray leather or more of a dark color gray? Also,is there some kind of coating that has to be cleaned off before delivery that will make the lighter color stand out more? Thanks

There is only one gray dakota leather so what you see is what you get. It should be a little bit darker in person than in pictures because of the flash and lighting condition. It's not going to get any lighter as well.

Can you order another one? IMO the gray is not bad. I think it looks pretty darn good.

NP, grats on your new car. IMO, gray is a very underrated interior color.
