Need help with color

I placed a order for a Alpine White X6. I have till next Tuesday to select interior color. I am unable to decide between Saddle Brown and Oyster. Does anyone have pictures of either? Is anyone familiar with the Oyster color? The dealer mentioned that blue jeans may stain the seats. Any help/comments would be appreciated.
Thank You,
Brian Kosaian

I wouldnt worry too much about stain
I've had two bimmers with very light interior and never had problems
It's leather, it's washable
Go with what you like the best

I just picked up an X6 this weekend with Tasman Green/Oyster. I have had black in most of my BMWs but really like this color. It shows dirt but cleans up easily.

The Oyster is LIGHT, but beautiful. I think the pictures online at the Build Your Own portion of www.bmwusa.com do it justice. Personally, I love the Saddle, but the great thing with either is that the carpets are still black. (And with the Sport Package, so is the headliner.)

I have the AW with the Oyster (sorry no pictures yet), and I did not find that the color was represented well on the BMWUSA site. It looks almost white on the site. My personal experience is the color appears as pale grey. With the black carpets and dash, etc....it is sharp. Agree with the comments about keeping clean, very easy.
If you have young kids riding in the backseat.... I would have to say, go for the saddle. If not the Oyster is awesome.

Oyster looks really nice. I would go with that one out of the two.
