I can't decide between Amaro brown/black with amaro brown alcantara headliner and Canyon brown with black alcantara headliner. So far I'm leaning towards amaro/ black because it comes with unique Amaro brown headliner .
Any suggestions ?

What color is the exterioir? And what is the black you are referring to with the Amaro brown? The piano black trim?

My opinion the darker canyon brown would look better with alpine white, but you can't go wrong either way. This great video is probably what is swaying me to canyon brown though.

thanks for the video.
now i am even more confused. lol
i personally prefer light color headliners and amaro brown is very unique color for a headliner. so i might get amaro just for that one reason.

I really am loving my Canyon Brown with the Poplar Wood. It's beautiful. But, yes, the Black Headliner makes the interior very dark overall... which I prefer, but if you want a lighter headliner and overall feeling, it may not be the way to go. I'm not sure how Amaro would look with the Poplar Wood, though. Have you see pics of that combo?

I haven't seen the pics but its not opal white/amaro brown
It's Amaro brown with black leather dash so I think poplar should be fine surrounded by black leather dash.

I'll be curious to see it. I know a lot of people tried to talk me out of getting the Gray Poplar wood with Canyon Brown leather, but I'm so glad I did. Follow your gut!

I had grey poplar in my last car. It looks sporty and its easy to keep clean. It doesn't show swirl marks when you clean it vs dark wood trim. Nothing is better than the mate finish wood in 7 series but that's not available in 6.

Just went to look at the matte wood in the 7 series, that is nice. Are you sure you couldn't special order it? You are already getting individual leather so they might let you do it for an extra cost.

Can you upload some interior pics of your car so I can compare ?

Yes, the matte wood from the 7 is my absolute favorite. Loved it in my previous 7ers.

I was told no. Believe me, I inquired.

In my opinion the only interior color that goes well with amaro brown headliner in opal whilte/amaro brown leather option since the dash board leather is in amaro brown but with the black leather dash it seems odd to me as you get a black leather dashboard then a brown headliner.

Yeah, I think I might feel the same way... black dash, black headliner.

It's all personal preference, though, obviously.

Hi guys,

I'm pretty new to this site and just think it's great! I picked up a 2014 650 convertible in August and absolutely love it!
I have Alpine White with Amaro Brown and Piano Black trim. I really like the Piano Black trim but always wondered what the other trims would have looked like. Does anyone out there have pics of Amaro Brown with and other trims? ...It's never too early to plan my next one haha.
