Got any more interior photos? (now you've got me reconsidering). How does saddle look after a few years?

Saddle is very simple to maintain. I use Zaino Z-9 and Z-10 periodically, but it always looks clean. I opted for Dark Walnut, but don't like it. I chose it because I didn't like the aluminum. If that would have offered Piano Black, I would have chose it instead.

My other problem with the Dark Walnut..........is that everyone has it and so many dealer spec. cars come with it.

Very satisfying - I'd have to paint my toenails to live with a light colored leather.

A man's shade for manly men who don't want black. Conspicuously absent aboard the Raging Queen.

okay,

I have to weigh in with pics.

OP, Saddle brown interior shots at 3 years old









I've specifically included shots here designed to focus in on wear spots. ie seat bolsters. Yes, I pay special attention to them but, as a light to mid neutral interior color, Saddle Brown can't be beat. Plus, as most off the lot cars aren't equipped with it, it automatically singles your car out. FWIW: I paged through the 17 pages of the E90 Post "show off your E93" thread, I saw only two Space Gray with Saddle posts. On the streets of Houston, I've seen one other Space Gray with Saddle. Not all that common. However, considering Gray over Saddle is an "approved" variant in the Luxury package of the F30, I guess it has its allure beyond my driveway. Bottom line, Saddle has versatility, utility and is also a bit less mundane than black.

If you go for it I think you will be very pleasantly surprised.

Oh yes - that works. Thank you - your photos bring so much more reality than the configurator.

Un-shiny leather too.
