The comments came before I started the car. I don't think they are even conscious of the anthracite headliner and steering wheel. They were just looking at the dash and console.

And, quite honestly, although I love the Cinnamon Brown, I think the black is a really nice -- perhaps even more serious -- interior. It's just that four out of my seven Bimmers have had all-black interiors, and I wanted something with a little more interest this time.
One other experience -- I had the Saddle Brown interior in my 335i coupe. That car won a People's Choice award for best interior at a concours d'elegance, and it was bone stock.
I recognize that the brown interior isn't to everyone's liking, but a lot of people react very positively toward it.
