Tobacco or Cinnamon Brown

Does anyone have either of these interior colors on their X5? Or better yet, have any photos? I love them both, but can't find either one on a dealer lot. Wondering if it isn't as pretty in person as it is on the computer screen, so no one orders it.

Ewww, I just read that Tobacco comes with brown carpeting. Not sure I am excited about that.

I just bought my '08 with Titanium Silver and Tobacco. I must say this was meant to be for me. It was a trade-in, sat on the dealer lot for 2.5 months, then they slashed the price to move it. People were passing on it b/c of interior. You either love it or hate it. I happen to love it, mine also had the optional dark bamboo wood which just ties it all together so well. The carpeting isn't "brown" per se, but matching the seat color, which made me a little hesitant to install the black floor liners but it worked out. Anyway, I can try and grab some pics tomorrow if you are interested.

You asked for pictures, so here is my cinnamon.
Very happy with the interior color, it was my top pick and the leather dash sealed the deal:

I so wanted the Cinnamon/black interior but I had to settle with the black/black as I wanted to pick up mine off the dealer's lot (I'm in Canada so that should explain to you as to why). I could've gone for the tobacco interior but it, in person to me, was meh, especially with the same tobacco mats and all.

Cinnamon Brown with Dark Bamboo wood trim is my choice... I wish I could get the black piano wood finish...

When I was shopping for my X5 I wanted it in Space Grey Metallic ext / Cinnamon or Saddle/Black interior combo w/ certain options.. I ended up finding a Space Grey X5 with everything on my check list except with a black/black interior..

There's just something about that Cinnamon/Black interior combo that screams sexy.. IMHO

If Tobacco did not come with the ugly color matching carpet then I would consider it.

I still drool everytime I see that Cinnamon/Black interior! Would've been a perfect combo to go with my Platinum Grey Ext.

Thanks for the pics! I'm really liking the cinnamon. I was afraid it would appear orange in person. Now finding one with cinnamon might be the hard part. I'm seeing two in Dallas, but that is a haul.

I test drove a white x5 with the darker brown leather (i assume that's tobacco) and i thought it was awesome. I actually wish mine didn't have the tan leather but the tobacco one. The white leather picks up dirt much easier and I find myself clenaing it all the time...but yeah i thought the darker brown leather looked very sharp

I have the tobacco and was a bit on the fence about getting it, however I really like it now and would most likely get it again. I've attached some pictures. However, note that its really hard to judge by some of the pictures that are out there.

So I will be the first to admit I used to be only interested in black interiors. When I ordered my X5 a couple of months ago I was stuck between black, cinn., and tobacco. In the end I chose Tabasco. The color of the brown with cinn. Is just not as rich as tobacco. Tobacco is almost like chocolate brown. The carpets gre on me and I would get e tobacco interior again.

I got the tobacco for the brown carpet. Call me too practical, but with kids and a Vizsla (dog with short brown hair) black carpet ends up looking dirty all the time. I've had the tobacco for 3 years (with sparkling bronze - a very monochromatic look) and appreciate that the interior stays looking cleaner than any color I've had in the past.

I had Oyster interior once. Beautiful, but lots of work to maintain. The driver seat loved to pick up hints of blue from wearing jeans. But last several cars have been black leather. It's getting tiresome.

I had tobacco in my 2008 and cinnamon in my 2011. Loved them both.
