Platinum Grey/Oyster/Bamboo/Anthracite.

I especially like the interior. If I had to do it again, I believe that I would have gone with Deep Sea Blue. When that blue car came in to the dealer that I had to cancel, I thought it was beautiful. I canceled the order to add premium sound and HUD to the 35d. I changed to PG because I thought it would be more practical. Now I can't find it in a parking lot because of the sea of grey SUVs [my previous X5 of 7yrs was blue and parking lot spotting was not so hard].

You know what? After my CA b*tched and moaned that it would be so hard to sell that canceled 35d with a low demand color and expensive options like sport+adaptive drive, 3rd row, etc, that car was gone in about a week or so. Ha!

Platinum gray, black nevada, dark bamboo wood with anthracite headliner (sports activity package).

Originally I had chosen deep sea blue, but after seeing one in person, I changed my mind. IMHO deep sea blue is too light.

Deep Sea Blue with Black interior, it is a very nice combination in color, not sure I understand the comment about it being light. Guess that is why they created black for those that want darker!

My 535i is Sapphire on black and I gotta say, i like DSB better, since it is new for 2011, not many around.

Black Sapphire with Oyster interior

I've been very happy with this combination, especially after my 15 year run of silver SUVs! The black takes work, but I really like the interior against black. So far, I'm a happy owner!

I had the beige interior in my E53 for 7 years. My son was 2 through 9 with that car. The interior wore pretty well; even with him walking in the back seats (as a <5yo will do). I had rubber floor mats, so the dirtiest parts were the arm rests on the doors, the center console, the backs of the seats, and the carpet in between the two back floor mats. I could always get the leather clean with a little wiping. The backs of the seats and the carpet however were Really hard to clean. I could get the backs of the seats presentable, but never really "showroom" clean like I like it. That center carpet was just awful -- the absolute dirtiest part of the car save the outside.

This time I got oyster; light where I like it and black everywhere a foot would possibly touch. Oyster is lighter than beige, but not markedly so. I think it should do alright so long I keep him away from the sharpies. I figure if I could do that from 2-9, I can do it 9+. The anti-sharpie rule applies Everywhere though, not just the car .

Exact same combo on order.. and is scheduled to be produced next week (week 35 per the salesman). I would love to see some pictures as i felt the combo might be little odd.. it will come with the sports package which includes the anthracite headliner (black)..

Hope the color combo will work out fine..

Mein Auto: 2010 X5 3.0d M pack
2010 30d space Grey, Black Nappa comfort, M-Sport pack, 20 inch,
I bought the car as an ex-Demo with 9,000 km couldn't tell it from new except the price was 25% off so ,very happy all round.

had I ordered it, I would have specified the active suspension, as sport is too hard, and a biege interior as Black is to hot in the sun.

otherwise a great car, needs the power of a 35d, but here in Belgium they tax us on Horse Power, so I have the light Turbo (211 hp) the torque is still 550Nm so it's quite good, but I drove several X6 35d, and they fly - Oh well, maybe next time. the 40d must be wicked.
haven't driven one yet - but intend too !!!!
