Mocha Leather in the Chicago Area

I would like to see the Mocha Leather in person. Is anyone aware of a Chicago dealer that has it in stock? Thanks.

Good idea. I highly recommend seeing it in person as you sort out your reorder in Black or Mocha. I went with Mocha but definitely something to judge on in person IMO. Pics are not doing Mocha justice in my opinion. (I did similar in the Mocha thread and a fester helped me find a dealer in my area that had Mocha to see, so you may try in that thread as well.)

Knauz claims to have at least one, but I'd call first:

Bill Jacobs in Naperville has one. It also has the vent seats which looks diff bc it looses the stiching across the seat back for a cleaner look. Also they have ivory white there too. It looks really good, the ivory white that is

I went to Knauz BMW and I test drove a 2014 535i with Mocha. I liked it a lot. I am going with Mocha Nappa and Dark Wood trim. The Nappa leather was beautiful, soft, and uber comfortable. The 2014 steering and suspension is much improved. The car drove great.

Was it difficult to order the Nappa dash?

The Nappa is worlds above Dakota. Changes the whole interior, IMO. I loved my Oyster nappa and wouldn't hesitate to get Ivory Nappa, but then again, I live in the land of the sun down here...

Yes. My CA had to jump through some hoops to do it. My CA Josh Douglas at Elmhurst BMW is awesome in dealing with my unusual requests. He also got it for Shiltsy on his Euro Delivery 5er.
