More options would be ideal.

Had Coral Red in the 2014 Space Gray. Was OK but really would have like the pure reds of the older BMW's.

Cloth seats

As long as we're complaining about color choices, we should complain about the lack of a cloth material option. Especially for the 3-series where ventilated seats aren't an option, it would be "cooler" and "warmer". They have them in EU and the rest of the world, but BMWNA believes they're not part of a "luxury" car.

You could get it in an M3/M4.

Only in Black, which as I have previously mentioned, is not my favorite by any means.

I am fine with the interior colors that are currently offered. A light grey option would be nice.

What I really want for seats in the 3 are the comfort seats of the 5 where the pan is contoured differently and there is better support for the lower back.

I think what needs more work are the exterior color choices. There is nothing light blue/light green. I prefer lighter colors and the only one I like in the current offering is AW.

Q: Is everyone else ok with the F30 interior colors?
A: I'm fine with the interior and exterior color combinations in part because I found the right one. I've driven cars with several different combos and they look great. I suspect most F30 buyers are fine as well because BMW has sold large numbers of F30 models since inception.

The market in the US doesn't want cloth seats. It's not worth the cost of certification.

I think I would go terribly mad with more color options. The ones they have, you can mix and match to get really nice combos. A gray and black option would be nice for interior.
Soon, I will be ordering a cohiba brown interior with the leather dash as well, where the underside is also in CB color. Thanks for recommending to get the full leather package @technic.
But Ha! Am still wavering between CB and amaro brown, but the lower dash also comes with that color in AB, too much light brown?
