what's headliner's color when u select tabacco internal color?

hi, i find one thing strange:

on BMW website, when i select tabacco as internal color, the headliner is kind of dark grey; while when i go to BMW dealer, i find one X5 with tabacco leather, the headliner is light grey, which is more like when i choose dark leather online

i attached 2 photos, which i saved from BMW website -- basically, what i find at dealer (also what dealer told me) is: if i select tabacco, the headliner will be DIFFERENT from what i get from online build

can someone confirm this for me?

thanks

The headliner in the picture with the tobacco interior looks like anthracite. It was my understanding anthracite was only available with the Sport package. My X5 has the tobacco interior and the anthracite headliner as shown in the second picture. However it also has the Sport package.

The sport package is separate from the premium package. If you build it from BMW website, there should be details about the sport package below or next to the premium package

Unfortunately I don't know the answer to that. I assume you're looking to buy a 35i Premium?

Edit: It looks as if the anthracite headliner is unique to the tobacco interior on the Premium. For the Sport it appears to be the only headliner color available.

problem is: i doubt if this is just a "typo error" -- since i do see a x5 premium with tabacco and the headliner is light color, it's impossible there're 2 different possible headliner for 1 internal color, right?

if the headliner for tabacco is "anthracite" or dark grey, i pefer to order tabacco, but i'm really afraid if i order one, the headliner will be light grey, that will screw me up

I don't see why not. For example if you build a 5.0 and select the grey interior you will have a grey headliner. However if you opt for the Sport Activity Package the headliner changes to anthracite.

Where are you seeing the light grey?

Edit: Never mind, I see you saw it in person. I would highly recommend you speak to a dealer to ensure you get what you want.
