Interior colour question

I took my 2009 328xi into my local dealership this week to talk about a trade for a new X3.After a test drive we sat down to spec out an order. I really liked the deep sea blue paint and the sales guy suggested a red brown interior which looked like a pretty good combination.
When I got home I tried to build this combo and the BMW site said it was unavailiable and a quick check of the brochure told me the same thing. I called the dealer and he told me that he can order this combination but I'm a little sceptical. Does anyone know if a dealer can order a colour combo that is not listed on the website etc?

Red Brown should be available; it may be a Priority One option but the dealer can definitely order it.

The sales guy is supposed to get back to me today to make sure it can be done. I'm not sure what a "priority one" option is but with all my experience dealing with BMW it sounds like an expensive one.

I have a Deep Sea Blue metallic x3 with Chestnut (Red/Brown) interior. In the US, the Chestnut interior is only available if the car is special-ordered and will not be in inventory at the dealers (according to BMW USA).

Last I checked, the only thing you could not get with this color combination was the lighter wood trim.

A "Priority One" option is an option that the dealer cannot order for "dealer stock" cars, but only for customer orders.

Thanks everyone. I just got an e-mailed quote from the dealership stating that there would be no extra charge and that they can order for their Sept. allocation.
