I recently purchased a 328xi Sedan 08'.

Here are the Colours I chose.

Montego Blue Metallic
Black Leather
Burl Walnut Wood

Here is a Screen shot of what the Exterior looks like except my car is a Sedan of coarse.

And here is a Screenshot of what a very Similer Interior will look like.
Except the Interior in my car will be a Bit more Vibrant.
My black leather is a bit more Jet Black than this PIC:

So what do you guys think?
Is it a good Colour scheme? I can still call them up to change it since I only recently ordered the car.

Love the Montego Blue...

Personally, I'd go with the gray or silver (aluminum, whatever it is) trim (but that scratches easily).

But it's still very beautiful!!!

Personally I wouldn't choose black for the interior. I'd choose either Gray Dakota leather or Cream Dakota leather.

Thanks, Mike.

Good choice, you'll like it. I have the same interior, no regrets...

Personally, I would not pick either of your choices. I have the black/burl walnut, it is very sharp.

I mean with his choice of Montego Blue for the exterior. For this exterior a lighter interior color would be better IMO. My Jet Black 328 has the black leather interior by the way.

Thanks, Mike.

There are good visualizers on the BMW International site. You may want to use that as a resource: http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicles/3series/sedan/2005/visualizer.html

Only concern I always had regarding a black interior is that it gets hotter in the summer but that depends on where you are. I have selected gray interior for my X# both the outgoing and incoming. It is bright, but not blindingly so (like the cream or sand IMO) and it wears very well. Also, it doesn't show dirt.

I have to agree with you there. I had the same thought process when looking at colors.

I suggest that given Montego Blue, you go with gray lthr or lemon lthr, paired with aluminium trim.

I think the beige leather would look great with the Montego Blue exterior. Whatever you choose, lots of luck with it.

I have black leather interior but I live in PA so there has not been any really warm weather to test that out...However I love it and I don't think i would want anything else :)

My current BMW and the previous two were black/black, but I'm looking to redress that. A lighter color makes the interior seem larger - the Z4 coupe interior is often described at claustrophobic in black. My bonus next year will go towards redoing the seats and door panels in Cinnamon, if I can still find the hides.

Your colors look great. One comment on those recommending beige interiors: I have a '98 Volvo S70 with beige interior - really like it and it would look great with your choice of blue exterior - but if you are not anal about keeping it clean, after about 7 years, it is hard to keep that way - especially driver's seat and carpet.
