Hmmm....just curious if someone can give some opinions. Everyone has been GREAT in helping me before, i'd figure i'd start a new thread(plus, my other posts seem dead, and well, i have a problem of talking too much! hehe).

Has anyone ever seen the sand leatherette interior with titanium trimming? Originally, that is what i wanted....but the more i think about it, the more i wonder if it would even look ATTRACTIVE!!! Any opinions, anyone have this?

Yea, that is exactly what i am starting to think. Obviously i 'might' be able to see one at a dealership, but i starting to doubt it. Well, seems that i am coming to the conclusion that i 'might' want the wood trim....which would probably lead me to get the Premium Package i was debating.....
Thanks for replying......
THere was a previous thread about 'leather vs leatherette'...i might have to re=read it. It seemed as though the majority of people recommended leatherette, and a good bit of leather owners said they would go with leatherette on their next purchase.
Here is how i look at it:
-i want the moonroof(1k)
-i probably want the wood trim(500)
thats 1.5k already...and the pp costs 2.9k. Are the leather seats and the other extras(lumbar support, rain sensor, auto headlights, etc) worth the extra 1.4k? i think so.....i just need to decide if i want leather. Time to go read that thread again i think......hehe..
Hmm...interesting info Nat. Honestly i really dont want leather(no real good reason to NOT want it, but also, not one reason i do want it). I read a few posts that mention that the Sand Leatherette looks like crap...TRUE/FALSE?
I'd still like to see a pic of the Sand with titanium trim..but i doubt anyone has that combo :(
While everyone dishes out their opinions on that, i have another question. Please take a look at this pic:

why are some of the dashes/sections black? In my own personal opinion, i don't dig this at this the way it would look if i got my car in Sand Leatherette? And if the answer is 'no, it wont look like that', exactly what would it look like? any pics?

Definitely not for me either....
In fact, personally i dont like all the different things going on(all the different colors.). If this is what it looks like inside for Sand Leatherette/Sand Leather/Natural Brown Leather, then i might opt for the black color instead. I just dont like the look personally.....too bad i am of the minority though....

EDIT: PM 325xiT supplied a better picture, and his pic does justice. Thats much better! It really wasnt the dash that was throwing my eyes off, it was mostly the doors and well, the SAND color in that previous pic seemed a bit too 'yellow' for me.....Thanks for the pic of the Sand Leatherette PM 325xiT!
Is it just me, or did everyone else have a hard time deciding between a few colors?????????????? GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!(i am referring to interior AND exterior...GRR GRRR):mad: :mad:
got any pics of the interior? Yea, the two colors i am stuck between are jet black and silver....for some reason, the silver is to my likings....but, it only comes in black/gray interior...sigh..
Was at dealer today....
two things i found out:
1. If you want sand can't get titanium trimming(or you can under request) comes with SAND trimming....(no idea what it looks like though..but this is what i was told).

2. I SSOOOO want jet black/black leatherette...DECISION made!
I'd love to see those interior pics! :angel:
Thanks for the pic! Very VERY attractive!!! i love pics!:D :D :D :)
