Saddle brown interior - Regrets?

Do you have any regrets on your combo, specifically the saddle brown interior?

Thinking of alpine/saddle e92

None whatsoever. 28 months with this interior and it does not get old.

Mein Auto: 335i with X-drive
I have been driving my Tasman Green/Saddle Brown for two months and have no regrets. Even when I was looking at the Alpine for the exterior, my choice of interior was the Saddle Brown. I wanted a light interior but not one which would get dirty too quickly. I think it is a good compromise. Fortunately not everyone likes/wants the same colours so i am sure you will get different opinions. Go with what you feel comfortable with.

Good luck

Tom

very happy with the saddle brown! I love how the interior is basically black, except for the seats and door inserts and arm rest. Those pieces really stand out since the rest of the car is black. pics here:

I bought mine used. Saddle brown wasn't an option, but I was able to find one with Terra. I love it. It's similar to saddle brown - very distinctive.

Love my saddle brown interior. My first choice and there was no question for me on the interior color, only the exterior. Highly recommend Saddle

Best interior color when it comes to comprising between light / dark combination.. It's not too light and not too dark and goes well with all exterior colors.

No regrets. It's one of the best combos. the White over saddle would look great as well.

Saddle brown is amazing. I get compliments all the time. And I just did the Pinnacle leather cleaner and conditioner and it looks even better. Slightly darker, much richer. Nicest interior I've ever had. If you've seen it in person and liked it, it'll only get better over time.

Zero regrets. I paired my exterior around the Saddle. I had Space Gray/Black Dakota on my prior car. I love the Saddle much more. So does my wife.

Like he said.....
I almost didn't find the right 08, because I really wanted an saddle interior. There where at least three exterior colors I would have taken.

None! I get so many compliments. Any other interior now feels boring in comparison. I love the two tone!

Does the Pinnacle leather cleaner smell good?

My choice of interior was the easiest decision in the buying process. Loved it from the start--and still do.

Exactly.

I have platinum bronze + saddle brown.

Also remember with the saddle brown leather the floor mats and dash are black.

No regrets. Looks extra luxurious.

It is the one thing people seem to comment on the most. Very glad I went with the Saddle Brown.

Best choice I ever made, I think red would be cool, although the M3 fox red is a better color than regular 3 series red leather!
