I ordered a spacegray 335 with Oyster leather and orig alu panel satin matt. I have Arctis now but think I will be pleased with the spacegray exterior.

Same here I have Arctis now as well. I was thinking about getting Blue Water which almost looks like Arctis... but then I felt that I wanted something different for my new Bimmer.

I went a bit tired of the blugreish tone.
+ that a new car wants to look different
And I love Spacegray

Space gray with Saddle brown and Walnut light trims

Hey guys!
Love the Space gray as well!
I'm going to order my new 325XI soon. And with space gray exterior I choose Saddle brown leather and Walnut light trims.
And as I see I'm not alone! Davoski choose the great car!

But some people said me that it won't look good. And the worst thing is that my girl thinks like that!

I create a picture on US site... What do you think?

I ordered Rotbraun aswell but I think I am going to back off from ordering it - it maybe too pale. There were some pics of it online the other day, and it just looked too pale. Check these out:

We have a few space gray e90's in stock now. Space gray looks better on the sedan than the coupe for some reason to me. With the shadowline its AWESEOME. In fact it looks a lot nicer on the sedan than coupe IMO. I would never consider space gray on the coupe but would on the sedan.

In German it's called 'Rotbraun', new color for 09, and it replaces Terra.

chestnut is the name of red/brown in the US....

post pics of your combination once you get your colour. I am about to change my order, but if you can really confirm that the colour is like fox red, then i will stick to it...

what trim did you take with red/brown? i took piano black.
