E39 ///M5 exterior/interior color combo question

Ready to buy a sterling grey ///M5 but wife doesn't like the all black interior which brings me to my question,does it come with any other interior colors...
My next question is,are there 2 types of seats options,one with the lines on them and the second type with an extra leather stitched on the bottom side bolsters ,the kind you see more often with 2 tone interiors...whats the difference ?
Thanks....
Any leads on a low mileage Sterling Grey 02/03 ///M5 for sale....

Check archives under "interior", "sports seat" etc to get the info on the different leather patterns. In short, the seats with the vertical lines are the "luxury" seats, the other are "sport". My Sterling Grey has black complete leather, so I have the vertical stitching.

Gbogh's Sterling Grey has a different interior color than mine, so yes, it does come in colors other than black.

STOCK interiors were two flavors: "Sport" or "luxury"

Sport is black, with different color 'panels'- grey, blue, red, and black. So an all black sport is possible.

Luxury came in all black or all caramel. The caramel is somewhat orange, not a low key tan. it was actually my first choice. All luxury seats have the vertical stitching. Sport seats have a distinctive curved stitch pattern.

generally speaking you could get wood or Ti (aluminum) trim. Sports usually came with metal, the luxury with wood.

Sun Shades were only available on Sport. Mine has all black sport with sun shades and wood trim.

There is a very nice silver 03 for sale in the FS section...

Good luck

A

PS You could also order custom "individual" interior and exteriors...

Quick... There are two categories of E39 M5 interior colors - Sport or Luxury. Luxury interiors have the verticle lines in the seat bottom and come in black or carmel interior colors.

The sport interior colors are a black seat with colored inserts in the seat bottom and door panels - black, red, blue and silver. Do a search on ebay motors for the M5 and view the interiors. You'll see several options.

Interior trim is wood or aluminum. Aluminum is standard for the sport version, a dark wood is optional for luxury or sport interiors and a second color of wood is optional for luxury interiors.

side note, the headliner is a dark (Anthracite) suede beginning in 2001 I believe.

Pretty much answers all questions on the interior options.
http://www.bmwmregistry.com/model_faq.php?id=18
All E39 M5s are equipped with power and heated M sport seats with adjustable lumbar support and a three-position memory on the driver's seat.Two distinct upholstery and trim styles were offered: "Sport" and "Exclusive" (later renamed "Luxury" for the North American market). The Sport interior was offered in the following combinations: Alcantara upholstery and door panels with Nappa leather bolsters and aluminum-look interior trim (not available for the U.S market), Nappa Point leather upholstery and door panels with Nappa leather bolsters and aluminum-look interior trim or Nappa Point leather upholstery and door trim with Nappa leather bolsters and Bruyere Club wood interior trim. The Exclusive interior included pleated Nappa Heritage leather upholstery and door trim with Bruyere Club wood interior trim or pleated Nappa Heritage leather upholstery and door trim with Burl Walnut wood interior trim. In addition, any of these interiors could be trimmed in either Extended Leather (leather on the door pulls, door armrests, center console, center armrest and sun visors) or Complete Leather (leather on the door pulls, door armrests, door panels, center console, center armrest, sun visors, dashboard, glovebox door, upper door trims and lower B-pillar plus Alcantara on the headliner, A-pillar, upper B-pillar, C-pillar and rear parcel shelf), depending on the market and production date.
