Question about Mojave Interior

I ordered a 2014 X3 in Alpine White with Mojave interior. The dealer couldn't give me much info on the interior accent colors. In other words, I know the seats and part of the doors are the mojave leather, but what color is the interior roof and side beams, etc? They had a used 2012 X3 35 with mojave interior and the interior ceiling was black. In some pictures I've seen online of the 2013 models, the ceiling looks either light gray or beige. Just wondering what I'm going to end up with!

Thanks!

The roof liner is beige, the black roof liner is optional. The carpets is black.

That is incorrect. The only color that comes with a beige roof liner is the Sand Beige. If you ordered Mojave, your interior roof liner will be grey and your carpeting will be black. If you ordered the M sport version, it changes the interior roof liner and pillars to black. Ordering the Sport Activity package did the same after the 2011 model year, but I believe they deleted that option for 2014.

There is a dealer in Arizona that has actual photos posted of a 2013 alpine white with Mojave and the roof liner is definitely not black. It's very light. I wonder if the 35s are black and the 28s are different? I was frustrated that the dealer couldn't tell me before I ordered it but she said they can't tell either.

Like Want the Thrill said, Mojave should come with a light gray roof liner and black carpet for both 28i and 35i, unless you get the optional M-sport or the Sport Activity package. I have a 35i with black interior and the roof liner is gray.

The one you are seeing online is a light grey. Beige can not be ordered with Mojave.

Grey is fine for me! I was just hoping it wasn't black. My first choice was sand beige but I didn't want to worry about the light interior with my kids. Even though they have been trained from an early age to take care of a car, it's still a hard color to keep clean!

For 2013 at least I know all of this is correct.

The dealer tried to talk me into a car on their lot that had most everything I wanted, but had the Oyster interior instead of black. Uhm... it doesn't bode well when the car at the dealership has blue stains from the jeans of people test driving it!

The black headliner is so nice with the Mojave interior. It really completes the two tone brown and black look.

Hi - I'm new to the forum (this is my first post!) but I wanted to let you know that I took delivery last night of my 2014 X3 (28i/i28, whichever!). Color combo is mineral silver w/mojave interior. The roof liner is in fact a sort of gray-ish/beige color - more gray than beige although it's hard to tell today because it's so dark and cloudy here (PA). I wasn't sure what to expect with the mojave interior; it's a bit lighter than I thought it would be but it's beautiful nonetheless!!

Thanks for the info! Congrats on picking up your new car. I'm also in PA - and yes, gloomy and dreary day today! The 800 number I called last night says my car is scheduled for completion on 4/25. Hoping to have it by the last week in April!

It's grey when you see it in the light. Congrats on your new ride!

Thanks! I'm loving it so far (though I can only look at it through the windows of my office at the moment... sigh. haha!). The mojave is really unique! My car was ordered on April 1st - I was amazed at how quickly it came in!

I agree, the Mojave with the black headliner makes the interior look very sporty.
