I've seen the brushed aluminum on black in person...looked good but I wasn't really impressed. I went with black leather/grey poplar after seeing the interior pics thread.

I love sparkiling graphite in pictures but in person I think it has a pink cast in the sunlight which really turns me off. Do others have the same impression?

I've heard some say it has a purplish hue in the sun but most think it's kind of a cool feature of the color that it changes in diff light conditions.

^^WHS^^
I saw both yesterday...
- Space grey/ alum
- black/grey poplar

1st I'm not normally a fan of wood in a car & generally prefer alum.

Not with this car....
The alum just looked OK in comparison to the grey poplar.
The grey poplar was outstanding

Not my thing personally. I have seen Coral in person. I'd be sick of it after a couple days. I have seen Graphite with Saddle and that was amazing looking. That's what I'm getting with Grey Poplar trim. Aluminum is cold looking to me. JMHO..

Sparkling Graphite + the oem 19s (Style 230 i think?) + Saddle Brown/Aluminum interior = sex

anyone with me?

We've had brushed aluminium (car in the above Harry335 pics) - its nice, but the best interior combo is coral red with high gloss black - this was our original choice but we bottled out having never seen it when ordering.
The UK dealers now have cars to see and the SG - Coral Red - High Gloss Black combo is beautiful, if any one is considering this but are having doubts then don't - it looks FANTASTIC!
No regrets though, Dakota with alu still looks cool

Beautiful pictures everyone!! Oddly enough, the first 335i I saw was in Sparkling Graphite as I passed by my dealer, hehehe...I love SG, it's such an interesting color...looks just as good on the 328/335i.
