I was at the dealer yesterday (again!) and found the following swatches:


(1) Onyx Blue exterior, Gold Brown leather, Poplar Natural wood trim



(2) Onyx Blue exterior, Caramel leather, Poplar Ruby wood trim




What do you guys think of these? :cheers:

Ashok,

I like the first but why have you not looked at Portland Natural Brown?

i dont like the first wood. in my eyes it is too yellow.
why dont you go for piano finish black. you know what i mean?

stupid question but how blue is onyx blue? i can hardly see any difference in the bmw visualizer between onyx blue and carbon black.

edit: and caramel leather looks better than natural brown (this one is too much orange for me).

yes, i would go for onyx blue, piano finish black and caramel leather. so you have not so many different colors in your interior...

Onyx Blue and Caramel looks nice together but still not sure about the wood.

Ashok,
Didnt we see a picture of caramel interior that we did not like? I cannot get a sense of any of the colors from the photos. There is just too much chance of color shift from the camera to the computer monitor. I love caramel on the E39, but I am not sure it goes on the E60.

Do we have a picture of the blue onyx on a car? It looks like a handsome color.

The wood in the second photo looks very red. To be honest it's diffcult to decide. These are only small samples. What could look nice here could turn out to be extremely loud when a car is decked out in it.

IMHO the second is slightly better than the first one, but I like them both.
I can`t say with color combination looks better until I see one for real or some photos, so... I mixed the interiours from Individual site, just to have better comparsion.
here you go: 3 series interior - golden brown + poplar natural
M5 - caramel + poplar ruby

Based on these pictures, I like the Gold Brown leather more, but I think it is as Jerry points out... just lost color from the picture to computer, etc. I definately like the darker wood more than the light.

Ashok Arora,

What about a new combination: gold brown leather with poplar ruby wood ;)
Mmmm.. interesting, I'll check it out - could feel a bit dark though.
