I've seen it in person, looks great. It was on white. Think it would look great on silver too, not so sure on the blues though

This is what I currently have on order! I have seen Mocha in person and really liked it. If you search around, there are many folks very happy with the look of CB with Cinnamon.. Mocha is a bit darker than Cinnamon, and I think CB/Mocha will look great!

I have a few pics of DG with Mocha. Looks great! I'm sure it would with black as well.

Thanks Rich. DG was another option I am considering. Looks like Anthracite trim? I may be one of the few that prefer Hexagon, but unsure about the Mocha/Black/Hexagon combo. I want to maintain a sporty look. Black & Hexagon would be the obvious choice, but I really like contrast in the cabin.

Excellent!

Most color combinations go quite well together- I'm not sure why people think otherwise.

When I was shopping around for an X3 last year I saw just about every color combination imaginable. I will say that the X3 comes with a red interior option and there was a red exterior model on a dealer's lot that was fully loaded. This had to be a special order by someone who realized they made a huge mistake- that combo looks terrible. Total clash of reds.

I've seen a 5 Series in a beige with a tan interior and it matches, but it is very plain and quite boring in my opinion. Blacks/Blues/Grays exteriors all look fantastic with mocha, beige, ivory interiors IMHO. That's just me. I probably wouldn't want a white exterior with an ivory interior- again a bit too much white.

I take pick up of the same color combo @ the Welt on the 25th. Can't freaking wait!

PS... you're running late on those pics!

It's disappointing that there is not a red color exterior option for the F10. Red/Mocha sounds killer.

Per BMW catalog, carbon black & mocha is actually not the recommended color combo... However plenty pics of carbon black and mocha here:

Great thread.

I'm working on an M Series right now. I'm loving the mocha, but can't decide on the exterior. I have Dark Graphite now, and love it but am not 100% sure I wasn't the same color twice, and I was also concerned that the two would clash, the pix posted here look great. I'd actually get the white metallic but that isn't available with the M. Also can't decide on the interior trim. I have anthracite now and like it, but am wondering if the Hexagon would be the thing to get with the M Sport.

I feel you. I waffled between Space Gray, Carbon Black, Alpine White…back and forth. Back and forth. Settled on Space Gray for my 550i xDrive (no worries about the whole 704 issue ).

I'm going with Anthracite for the trim. I think it softens things up a bit. On the M, you may be right - the Hex prob gives it a more youthful, aggressive/techy feel.

You just gotta go with your gut and feel good about it. I think any combo you pick is going to look sweet. Don't second guess/beat yourself up over your choice like I'm doing…my car will be out of production on the 12th, and patiently waiting for my wife and I to greet her on the 20th in Munich!

I'll post pics as well.

I went with Imperial Blue / Mocha / Anthracite in my order. Hexagon seems too cold & sterile to me.

I'd also worry it would show wear more quickly than wood and be harder to keep clean. Anybody have a long term experience with the hexagon trim who can comment?

Dark Graphite will look great with a mocha interior in my opinion. They wouldn't clash at all. My friend has Dark Graphite with brown seats- not Cinnamon, but the brown that came before it, and it looks fantastic. Anthracite is a good choice for trim- nice go between for the black dashboard and mocha seats.

Saw Carbon Black and Mocha interior today- absolutely stunning combination. Also has Anthracite trim. This color combination goes very well together. I took pics with my iPad- they are very mediocre, but I'll post them anyway.

Just picked up my 550 with CB & Mocha. I love it. Used the antrhacite (sic?) trim. It is lighter than the pictures on bmwusa, but looks good.

Anthracite goes quite well with Mocha Nappa and the black headliner/carpet/dashboard. I chose the exact same interior. Hot new interior combination for the 5 Series! Anthracite has been around but Mocha Nappa Leather is new.
