You know what, I bet an F30 M Sport could pull off Atacama Yellow quite well!

All of them! The color options right now are pretty limited...

Nobel Spinel Mica, a Lexus color. The best "red" ever. Yeah, I know, it's not a BMW color, but what the hell, some guy painted his M3 that color, so we can hope, right?

IO wanted to say asman Green but then I saw it and it's too light. THe Green that's available on the M6, whatever that's called, is the one I like.

Tanzanite would be my first choice, but I'd be happy with Carbon Black as well.

Black Sapphire just doesn't have enough blue in it!

Yup, tanzanite and carbon black, with oyster interiors.
Also, additional wood trims??

None of them. IMO they are pretty rubbish. EBII rules.

I realize I might be in the minority here.. but wood interiors on something other than a 7-series just look awkward. Our cars are a sea of plastics, rubber and LCD screens. Some fake-looking wood grain is a screaming anachronism. A nice wood dash on a '36 Jaguar? Sure.

I am so tired of the wood on my e90, looks so out of place, completely agree. We are in a post wood world of aluminum, carbon fiber, and piano blacks.

I'm with SAM here

I HATE WOOD INTERIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's such an old man trim option. If you're after luxury sport you have to go with Alum, Piano Black, or Carbon Fiber

I'm also a fan of Graphite Gray in the 08 M3 (i believe).

Forest Green

I would also like to see "Forest Green" as an optional color on the F30 in addition to those other colors. I had it on my 2001 E46 330ci coupe. I got many compliments regarding that color over the years that I owned my E46. IMHO, that shade of green really looks great on a 3 series BMW.

I couldn't find a current Dark Green so I just went with their current offering for the poll. But I agree a British Racing Green like Jaguar's would look great on the F30.

Well, I did have a tan interior with a wood dashboard once upon a time. The year was 1973 and the car was a brand new TR6. And it worked because the TR6 was an obsolete british sports car from the get go. The engine pulled nicely though and the exhaust note was great! I haven't had a car that sounded that good until I got the 335.

I agree that wood in a modern German manufacturer's car does not work. The aluminum hex trim is what I opted for in mine along with the basic black and it works well. Nothing distracts from the driving experience. BRG with tan leather and a wood dash belongs on a Jaguar - that is Jag's heritage.

Should have included a choice for a darker red/maroon color. I'm not a fan of really bright red cars, but a very dark ruby could be interesting.
