black on black with aluminum would look the classiest and most modern IMO. Super stylish would be black with oyster interior, but then what trim? Dk bamboo, I suppose. If I had it to do all over again I would go Deep Sea Blue with oyster/black interior and alum or dk bamboo. There is also another trim that is BMW individual (some sort of poplar i think but not sure). I do love my titanium silver with black interior and alum trim. Good luck.

I was in between oyster and Cinnamon. I took a look at a car that they had it out there for demo purposes. It was Oyster and start taking the colors from the clothes and etc. Then I pulled the trigger for the cinnamon.
my final combo is:
Black Saphire on Cinammon Brown and dark burl walnut.

Would i choose it again, for sure yes in a heart beat. It looks sexy and hot.

I wipe it down once a week with a damp cloth. Works so far.

As a mom of 3 young kids...beware of a lighter color. As stated above, there definitely is a blue jean effect. If you go with Oyster, and have passengers who wear a lot of blue jeans, the dye will run off. I have seen jeans at the store with tags attached warning against this. I had a cream leather couch...after a few years, you could tell which seat was sat in the most. I chose black with my X5 only because I knew it would be the easiest to keep clean with my kids & lifestyle. Obviously you know what your lifestyle would warrant. I will say this, as soon as I am not carting kids around on a regular basis, I will be getting something with a light interior. Wish I could get it now, but will just have to wait! I hope to get mine Monday. I am about to tear my hair out in anticipation!

The white/oyster interior will show age MUCH faster than other colors. For my tastes it is to unnatural for leather, but that is a personal preference.

Sapphire Black and Nevada Brown gets my vote. Add some Ferric Gray wheels and you have a stunner.
