I chose grey poplar trim with Jade grey. This combo looks great IRL. Yes, the carpets, speakers, door trims, lower dash, rear parcel shelf and center console are all in black. There are several photos of this interior (but with different trims) posted on the E92 interior thread. Jade grey is not available in the USA; perhaps, in a few months time, it might be available by special order, but that might be wishful thinking on my part. However, lemon leather for the E90 was also not available for the US market. It would appear that BMWUSA doesn't like/want light coloured leather for US customers, but you can get cream beige for the E92 which is lighter than Jade grey. Does this make any sense ??
So in the US, if you want a two-toned interior, you have a choice of coral red or saddle. If you want a light coloured, mono-tone interior, you are limited to grey or cream beige. Why is there less choice for BMW's largest market is beyond me .

My car landed in Halifax Sept.12th and it should be on a train headed west, ETA Vancouver Sept. 26.
I did see the same interior combo (Jade grey + grey poplar) in a black 335 coupe. This combination looks stunning. I'll email photos to you after I take delivery.

Great color, local dealer just got in a space gray/coral red/darkburl/MT/ZSP. The car overall looks way better IRL. In pix its looks huge, but after a walk around its seems so compact, these things look intense. Sits surprisingly low and I love the wide stance, gotta love the bangle era - Homeboy is mosdef a trendsetter. I cant wait to see space gray with a nice set of large wheels with a fat lip.

Is it tinted windows ? I'm looking for photos of a Space Gray with tinted windows. I've ordered mine with 35% all around but never seen a photo with this combination. Thanks

Seems like the closest thing to Jade in the US is Lemon (light color seats w/ dart carpet)...... The recent pictures I saw made me think it was close to Jade.

Can anyone that has seen Lemon in person comment? How would it look with Space Grey?

It's not clear to me which car, sedan or coupe, you are thinking of ordering.
If it's the sedan, I have seen Lemon/burl walnut with Sparkling graphite. This is a really stunning combination.
For the coupe, Lemon is not available in any market, so therefore, you could not combine it with Space grey. For US coupe buyers, you are limited to Cream beige for a light interior or Grey. In both these examples, the interior is mono-tone. Two-toned choices for the US are Saddle brown and Coral red.

I have a ED for the coupe and was disappointed to find out the Lemon is not available. Even more disappointed that the US cannot get Jade.

My suggestion would be that you write to the Marketing Manager, BMWNA HQ in New Jersey, and express your thoughts on this situation.
From reviewing this forum, it is clear to me that a good number of Europeans and Canadians are ordering Jade grey interior. Why are Amercian purchasers being denied this choice ????

Ordered a Space Gray/Coral 335i this afternoon

I went to the dealer expecting to order crimson/black or alpine/coral. My last 2 cars have been silver (arctic silver 328is and lake silver Audi TT), and so I had NO intention of ordering silver, gray, arctic, etc. I like crimson a lot in person, but I don't like the way it works with the 335i taillights, and I don't really want to attract that much attention. Anyway, I took a look at AW in person and although the car looks awesome in any color, I was disappointed by how lifeless AW looks, even when it's brand new. It seems that car photographs better in white than it actually looks in person (IMHO), but otherwise the car always looks better in person. My wife hates blue cars, otherwise I'd have gone in that direction. Then we went down and took a look at the sales manager's personal space gray/coral combo, and I almost passed out. I ordered that combo, with aluminum. Very happy. One note, it looked like the window trim was dark and matte, and definitely not chrome. It wasn't shadowline, but looked kind of dark gray. Could it have been the lighting? Salesguy said my car will come with that trim, and that it's not a special order.

This is my E92 with Gray interior

I've attached some pictures of my Space Gray E92 with Gray interior and Gray Poplar wood. Somehow the gray poplar wood looks very brownish in the pictures, but in real life it looks a lot more grayish. I only noticed the brown tint in the pictures. :-)
I think it's a great color combo. And of course the car is amazing. Just picked it up last Sunday, and I'm loving it more and more every day.

Your camera makes Space Gray seem slightly more brown than it usually is as well... Still looks great though.

Just came back from Lindau, Germany where there was a major E92 event at one of the largest BMW dealers I've ever seen. Will post some space grey and black this evening. Also had a 530D, totally tricked out, for a week rental. Up to 156mph on the Autobahn and quite frankly a little scary for the driver. The car responded beautifully.

I've seen Space Grey in the metal (my car at the dealer) and its beautiful. Fear not, those if you who have already ordered it, you won't be disappointed

Any colour by BMW won't look in reality as brilliant as shown in published press pics. IMO

I just ordered my first BMW last night. I think it's pretty exciting to actually "order" a car the way I want it.....

335i Coupe, Space Gray, Black Leather, brushed aluminum, 6MT, Nav w/iDrive.

Now, I just have to wait 6-8 weeks to get it.

At first, I thought about Sparkling Graphite Metallic, but after looking at it in person, it appeared to have a purple hue to it.

Anyway, I am looking forward to owning my first BMW.
