hrm, thats very promising then! Thanks DerekS!

Can someone check on the steering wheel and let me know if the cover is the same size as the one on the e90? I really want to get that chrome piece put on my car! Thanks.

Well for what it's worth, when I saw Gray Poplar just the other day, it looked more like the "real life photo" than anything else. It definitely came across to be as a dark, muddied brown than gray.

Maybe people just have different perceptions of the color. The fact that they outright call it "Gray" probably doesn't help either.

I'm losing my mind over picking car colors. I was pretty set on TiAg with Coral Red/Aluminum, now I think its just too much, too bright and flashy, and i'm leaning towards TiAg with Black/Aluminum. Now I think TiAg is too boring and I want to go with S.Graphite and beige or that brown color. I'm losing my mind guys. what do you all think?

I went through the same thing. Basically I had ordered a Space grey with red interior, then I changed it to Sparkling Graphite with black interior/ grey poplar trim. There is no question in my mind at this point that I will be happy with the combo I ordered. I actually like the fact that there is some brown in the grey poplar trim. Makes it look richer IMO.

Does anyone have coral red with high gloss black trim photo? I have ordered a titanium silver 335i with the above mentioned interior. however, I am afraid that this "coral red" is more yellowish than pink as in the option book.

The debate goes on as far as the Gray Poplar....Best to see it in person. Like so many of these custom colors the tint of the Gray Poplar may look widely different as different lots are produced. It's not plastic - a consistent color on stained wood is a lot to ask. The slight variation is one of the most atrractive characteristics of wood.

As I posted in the original thread that photo of the dash trim that looks so brown was not adjusted in any way and no flash was used. That photo may be slightly more brown than the actual, but is still pretty acurate. In the car that dash trim did seem more brown than the smaller trim pieces on the doors and center console. I even went back a couple days later and looked at it again. It definitely is not a Charcoal Gray that it seems most people are expecting.

I think the "lemon" is called "cream beige" in the USA and it is available on the E92. Please correct me if I am wrong, but that is what it looks like by looking at the usa website visualizer.

Nevermind, no its not. Close, but not the same.

Is the black trim not available in the USA or is it just the visualizer that is not configured properly?

Also I don't seem to have the option of Jade Grey leather...

Can anyone post a E92 picture with creme beige then?

Lemon interior is a two tone interior completely different than creme beige.

Jade grey is not available in the states.

Black (piano trim) is not available in the states either.

E92 w/ crem beige... do a search.

Man it is pretty shitty that two of the best choices IMO are not available in the USA. Can someone else confirm/deny this?

I can confirm that Piano Black is only available with the Individual Program in UK, and Individual options are VERY expensive and not available to anyone else, or I would have had it in a heartbeat. IMO that lacquer black is the most sophisticated trim I've seen and it ratchets the interior up several notches. I can't find it, but there is a post on this forum from someone who's making black trim for sale, pics included. I don't know if anyone's purchased it from here.

Just noticed that if you don't have navigation, you get chrome rings around the stereo and A/C knobs. However, if you have Nav, you only get the chrome rings around the A/C. I wonder why?
