X5 ordered: Input needed for wood trim and premium sound

I just put in an order for 35D in Platinum Gray, Cinnamon Brown, and Light Poplar with following options.

Premium package
Heat front seats
iPod and USB adapter
Running boards
Space saver tire
Roof rails

I am a bit unsure about the wood trim and not opting for premium sound.
First with the wood trim, I went with Light Poplar thinking that it add better contrast with Cinnamon Brown and adds warmth than Dark Bamboo. I havenít seen Light Poplar in X5 in person and am a bit worried that it will look too light and out of place against Cinnamon Brown. Has anyone seen CB/LP combo in person? Any opinions?
As for the premium sound, I have seen a recent post regarding how inadequate the base system is and that premium sound is a must option. Can X5 owners with base sound system provide feedback? I listen to iPod all the time and appreciate good sound, but donít consider myself as audiophile and am willing to save $1400 if the base system is adequate for mp3 listening of rock and pop. I appreciate your input in advance.
