Decisions, decisions! Which colour?

Help! Will be ordering my new 520 M Sport soon but can not decide what colour to go for.

I am torn between Imperial Blue with Oyster/Black interior or Carbon Black with Cinnamon Brown interior - bot cars with Fineline Anthracite inlays.

What do you reckon?

Of course, it's a matter of taste but I'd go for IP and O\B - a really striking combination. I thought about Cinnamon too but it is a slightly odd shade of brown - they should probably have more of a saddle brown instead of that slightly unusual option.
That said, either are refreshing alternatives to black when you've had it in a few cars...
BTW, I chose light ash trim with the Oyster\ Black leather.

Like the colour combo and spec arnsbrae. I do agree that the cinnamon brown colour is a bit unusual and would prefer Natural Brown but not available on M Sport
I like the look of oyster but am concerned it will mark really easily (been told blue jeans can stain the seats).
Have you heard anything about this?

Hi Hammy,

If you read the thread below carefully it becomes clear that people who actually have Oyster \ Black have no problems with blue jeans and stains in general.

I had to order black for cost reasons, but the Imperial Blue M Sport with Oyster\ Black will look special IMHO.

This is a good place for interior pics (if allowed by this forum...)
