Preferred Interior Colours?

I'm curious to what interior colour every prefers for their E9x's.

In particular; what do you think of the "Saddle Brown" colour?

I've been looking to buy an Alpine White E90/92 with specific features & packages for the past 3 months. However, every one that pops up is missing at least one of those features or colour.

An E90 and an E92 recently came up with everything I want, but both of them has the "Saddle Brown" interior colour, which I'm not a big fan of. So I'm kinda torn between whether I should go for it or not....

Saddle brown/terra are actually my favorite, with oyster/lemon taking a close 2nd. The red is too bright for anything other than a black or white car, IMO. I have gray in my car - it's kinda nice but being monotone it's very bland after awhile. I want to swap in black carpets and black door cards to break it up some.

Saddle brown is my favorite and would trade my black interior for it.

coral red dakota (against silver trim). I'd be shocked if there weren't an overwhelming majority of votes for this seleciton

Coral Red is by far my fave. Oyster/lemon is second. I bet 90% of the cars on the road have black........boring. Brown is becoming popular.

Garage List
If I could have gotten it on a US car, Navy Blue would have been my first choice, with Alpine White on the outside. You could get it in Europe, but not here. I settled for Chestnut on Tasman Green. Saddle is OK. I like Coral Red, but that was not available on the e91.

Good luck with the hunt - always amuses me when folks are looking for a super-specific combo on a used car. I gave up and ordered a new one Euro Delivery for the win!

Saddle brown (which I have) or chesnut. Cannot stand beige at all, and the red one looks way too boy racer. Black is alright, just boring.

I like black but mine is jade grey.
With Alpine white, I think saddle brown is fine.

Coral red or Oyster dakota; it really depends on what the exterior colour is.

Dammit, now you have me debating wrapping my bamboo interior trim

To be honest though I think it adds an element of Zen to an otherwise rather exciting looking interior.

Besides Morristown BMW spent days insulating all of my rattles and creaks- I think I'll leave well enough alone

I've had saddle brown before, and loved it. However, it was on a dark colored car. I don't think I'd like it in a white car. A little too girly, IMO.

Saddle Brown is nice but Coral Red is even better. Looks so good on a white exterior too.
