Opinions on Platinum/Cinnamon combo

I am strongly thinking of this color combo if I can finalize my negotiations.

I've seen pics of the black/cinnamon combo, but what do folks think of pairing cinnamon with platinum gray?

Platinum/Cinnamon is one of my top picks (the other being Platinum with Black Nappa leather)... I think the two-tone look of the dark carpet and lower doors when you get with the Cinnamon looks great. Even better with an Anthracite headliner on the 35i SA model, but am still leaning towards Platnium/Cinnamon with a 35i Premium.

What wood choice are you leaning towards?

I think it will look great. I have Space Gray with cinnamon and everyone who has seen it likes it. After driving a "coal hole" black interior BMW for the past 4 years, having some nice color is a wonderful change!

Bamboo. I'm not one for the "obvious" wood grain in the other choices.

Is it as dark as it appears in the brochure? I do not want too light of an interior (2 young kids) and the pics I've seen posted look washed out due to camera flashes.

Fantastic color combo. Dramatic, not too dainty like the oyster/light interiors.

If you have young kids, an all black interior can be hot in the summer.

Love my cinnamon and it is as dark as the brochure, none of the pics do it justice as the flash makes it more orange. I have 2 kids and it is a great color, not too light and doesn't show the dirt. Also is nice because the dash remains black and so do a lot of the door panels and carpet which gives nice contrast. The light interiors end up being beige everything, they do the doors, carpets bottom of the dash, much too light in my opinion, so the cinnamon is a good compromise of not all light and not all black! Think it would look great with Platinum!

Felt the same. Based on the build your own tool on the BMW website, I wanted the cinnamon, but after seeing in person, went with oyster.

My wife and I love our PG w/Cinn. I know, I need to take some better pics...
We went with the Burl Walnut wood as we thought it complimented the Cinn better than the bamboo. We felt the bamboo was too dark and the burl had a warmer red/brown finish.
