'09 - '11 M3 color combos

Can anyone tell me whether it was possible to order a MY 2009 - 2011 M3 sedan in Alpine White with saddle brown Dakota leather? I've seen probably two examples with the Bamboo interior color in all my searches, but haven't seen one with saddle brown. Seems like almost everything out there has either black or red, with an occasional gray one here and there.

I'll be posting a WTB on the For Sale forum soon, but didn't want to embarrass myself if the color combo never even existed.

Thanks!

Only colors I recall are beige, black, red and silver (what you called gray!)... Might have been able to get saddle brown on an individual order but those owners often chose individual paint as well so the odds of finding AW and saddle brown seem remote to me.

No Dakota leather -regardless of color- was available in the M3. Only Novillo leather.

The only brown-color Novillo leather available in the M3 is Individual Rust Brown:

Per the '11 M3 sales brochure I found, Bamboo was the only "tan" interior color available that year.

I didn't have any luck finding any of the other years online.

Thanks to all for the quick responses. I was afraid that's what I'd hear. A shame, since it's such a handsome color combination in my opinion. Certainly don't mean to flame anyone else's choices (after all difference is what makes the world go around) but the red is way too over the top for me; black goes very well with Alpine White but is too hot in some summer climates; and I have never been a fan of "silver" interiors because I think the leather in that color looks rather inexpensive and unnatural and, frankly, it's too depressing to be sitting behind the wheel surrounded by all that grayness.
