On the F10 535 the tail pipes are separate left and right.

I know its a boring color combo, but the other colors just don't work for us (black lab who swims a lot, and a new baby girl).
+1. After seeing the Cinnamon Brown Dakota leather in person today on a 550 GT which looked like a clay color rather than deep brown/orange (photos below), I decided to order my 535i with black dakota leather with black sapphire exterior.

I'm pretty sure this is what we will end up with:

528i - dual round tips on the same side

535i - dual round tips, one on each side (like current 335i)

550i - dual rectangular tips, one on each side (like the new 750i)

This is right.

Yep, that's where I'm heading also. How disappointing. BMW has such a sporty heritage, you would think that they would offer some classy sporty color combinations to match. For example, how could they offer Cinnamon versus a rich Saddle interior for a 5 series? I just don't get it.
