Trolling for Tanin--What Years Was It Offered? (in the US) Pics?

1319 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Alex Baumann
Of late, I have decided that SG+Tanin is the best combo. Real classy, just like me. :D

But it doesn't seem to be offered anymore. Thats fine, cause I'm thinking getting a used car anyway. So a few qstns:

1) What year(s) was Tanin offered?

2) Besides SG, what other ext. colors does it look good with? Black? Silver? Funny thing is, I really dont like SG that much except with the Tanin). Otherwise, I'd prefer go for OB + black.

3) Curious to know what other people think of it. Hate/love/lukewarm, whatever. I'll do the poll thing if I figure it out.

4) Oh yeah, proud owners, feel free to show off pics...

I have a Titanium Silver with Tanin Red leather 2001 330Ci For sale.http://www.beemerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=733
Another Classic Combo.

Tanin Red may have been offered in 1999 (?), but it was definitely offered in 2000 and 2001.

Steel Gray with Tanin, it's great, probably the most attractive car I've ever owned. It will go on the market in a few months when I spec out an M3. Too bad you're so far away. You can check out some pictures on the website. There are interior pictures there, but they tend to make Tanin look brighter than it really is. It's hard to photograph. Good luck.:thumb:

Here's one of my fave's of Tanin.

Fairly accurate depiction.

It simply rocks !!!!
Mike's picture is a very good representation of Tanin.:thumb:
Thanks for the response, guys. Those are some really nice pictures all around. Being able to look at the interior is definitely a legit reason for getting a convertible, mike :thumb:. I'm pretty sold on the Tanin. Trust me to like the color that's been discontinued.

The interior shots taken in daylight all look really good (the flash seems to make it look redder).

I also did a search (yes, I figured that out), and found one with Tanin/Alum trim. Nice!!:

Alex, I think you actually started the thread on that link. So did you consider switching to alum. trim. why/why not? (I assume it's possible to get the trim separately, same as 2002 trim, correct?)

So it looks like everyone's 2000 or 2001 so far.

One thing I was trying to figure out: so the 323/328 became 325/330 in 2001, and they also changed the steering wheel. So isn't that also when they started using the M68 wheels? I think Steve has a picture of a 2000 328 with those wheels, so I'm not sure...

The reason I ask is Im trying to figure out how much work I'll have to do to get exactly what I want:

1) tanin
2) Alum trim
3) SG (somewhat flexible, maybe Black or Silver)
4) m68 style wheels (or other really cool ones like Alexs)
5) New style steering wheel (slight preference)

I think 2001 would have everything w/o requiring any work, but 2000 would be cheaper...

Also, I get the impression that changing steering wheel can mess w/ airbag, which seems a bit shady. But thats another topic...

I think it looks good for now, but will kill your resale value.

Actually I was trying to see different trims with Tanin.
