F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Terra Leather Interior

Yesterday after taking an M235i out for a spin, I got to play around inside a 228i with Terra Leather interior. I noted that, in addition to the brown seating and door surfaces, the headliner was also brown. It was a very nice look. This doesn't seem to mesh with the online configurator for the 228i, which makes it look like the headliner is more of an oyster color. The brown headliner looked very nice.

Has anyone seen an M235i with the Terra Leather? Does that also get the brown headliner, or does that stay black like the configurator seems to indicate?

I hope this is the case. Terra and Saddle are great interiors as long as the headliner isn't that god awful grey. Either the brown or black headliner make them look amazing. Two tone looks great, three tone looks tacky.

Any chance you can get some good photos of the Terra interior? Seems people (including me) are clamoring for real life photos of it! There are ZERO photos that have been posted of it in the 2 series.

The agony of excitement. I ordered mine in EB with terra interior. Just like you, I'm searching ... :-) According to my SA, production for mine is set for first week of April.

I really like Terra interior. photo taken at the dealer., a white M235i. The photos are representative of the actual tone/look. Sorry the photo is flipped around.

Terra is significantly darker than saddle.

Yeah but I have a saddle interior. That pic is obviously not a good reproduction of color for terra as it looks a lot like saddle.

does anyone actually have a 228i w/terra yet? Can anyone comment on whether you get the grey headliner, or if it's a darker brown?

Thanks for the links. Terra was my most likely choice of interior, but was still wanting to see one in person. Dealers have told me they won't order one for their stock. Obviously, there is a lot of interest so I don't get it, but at least the photos and video helps. A little different than the the BMW build representations.
