Which interior for Alpine White?

Debating between Mojave/Fineline Wave, black/brushed aluminum or sand beige/either wood. Any opinions?

I have white and I got the Mojave/fineline wave wood. It is so rich in person.

Personally I do not like the beige with the white. Black and aluminum quite nice too but feel it has been done to death. It isnt much of a pic but you get the idea....

Thank so much. Do you have any bigger pictures? Or any of the interior from the outside with the doors open?

unfortunately i dont. Ill see if i can take some later. I have gotten a ton of compliments on the color combo. and I really like that its not super dark since the outside is light and the stitching is almost a whitish color....brings it all together.

I don't have AWhite at present, but my 2 previous BMWs were AW w Black, one had light wood, the other dark wood.

My preferance would be AW w Black, dark wood; or Mohave w dark wood. I don't care for Beige interior w AW.

Just my 2c.

I like the understated black/aluminium on most every car.

Don't understand why they don't offer carbon fiber as a choice.

Aluminum looks so GM cheap its ridiculous. Might as well buy an Arcadia.

You would also get a usable third row, and decent cargo space along with the "GM cheap". Actually you would get a pretty nice interior with the Buick Enclave! As far as BMW black is concerned, I regret I got it every time I get into the car. After a bit it shows all the dust, scuffs, and looks beyond tacky. It is also very hot and I don't mean that in a "good" way. I have the black interior with the aluminum (GM cheap) trim. I should have gotten a lighter color and wood trim.

I like aluminium. It's modern, clean, and understated. And unlike most other cars, it's real aluminium not the fake plastic stuff. (Silver Matte is plastic). Heck, I don't even buy wood furniture anymore.

And cheap IMO.....sorry it looks cheap, it feels cheap, it is cheap. Why devalue a car like the BMW down to US standards. Like I said, show me carbon fiber, show me better wood grains, etc... but aluminum...really?

When I worked for a radio station that was rated number two in the market, there was a competitor of the same genre and style yet it was ranked 13. The program director made a really smart comment: Chase number 13 and you will be right behind them. Aspire to be number 1 not number 14.

BMW now seems to chase the "lessor" type competitors, while they all are trying to be number one. If they keep it up, they might catch up.

Back to the original post.

Just go for one of the deeper brown's and a nice wood grain. Its simple timeless and you will be able to sell it later.

Do you mean Mojave? That's the only deep brown I can think of. If I go with Black which wood looks best if not aluminium?

I have black with the dark wave wood and it looks great together. The lighter wood just looks cheaper with the black.

What about Chestnut? Would that look ok with white? Which trim goes with it?

Yes, Chestnut goes with the white. Probably the dark wave wood with the chestnut would be a good combo.
