Please post interior if you can. I am days away from production.

That photo is from a Luxury line F30. The M Sport interior does not have the inlayed walnut, nor the ugly steering wheel and nor the saddle brown leather.

That was the same walnut that came in my M-Sport.

I have anthracite in my sportline with pearl trim and blk leatherette. I'm at work so I'll try to go outside and snap a pic if I can in a few minutes.

BTW - I absolutely love the anthracite. So worth the $250 upgrade- perfect blend of sportiness and classiness in one trim. I think its the perfect trim for the Sportline. I almost got the red trim but I just kept thinking it looked gaudy.

You're the man! BTW, do you think the red stitching clashes at all with the wood? Happy with leatherette?

How long ago did the dealer submit the order? If recent, give him another push because I saw a Sport Line with wood trim, and doesn't work, unless you're going with Everest Gray Leather.

Love the leatherette. This is my 3rd 3 series (E46, E90, now F30) and I've bad black leatherette in all of them. Wears very well and looks/feels just like leather. No need to pay $1500 IMO. I just wish they didn't package Comfort Access with the PP - it was a standalone on my E90.

Some pictures are below - sorry for the bad lighting. Its cloudy here and close to dusk so pics don't do it justice. Trust me, its a great trim.

Not at all. The red stitching adds a nice accent. I felt the red trim was actually more intrusive. Plus the red stitching is pretty subtle black on black with the dark anthracite is very nice. Like I said the perfect combo of sportiness and class.

Strictly personal taste, I like the anthracite wood. But it really depends on what you're going for. I wanted classy interior/sporty exterior. If you want a more sporty interior I'd go with aluminum, classy= wood. Just my .02.

+1 The red is very subtle. No issues with the anthracite wood.

Love my anthracite wood in my black Sportline interior....looks much more rich than the standard black gloss or aluminum that could be scratched easily.

Its "softer" looking in real life. Camera flash not giving a true idea of how subtle it looks. Its very rich looking.[/quote]


I have that interior as well (dakota black leather with red stiching, anthricite trim) and LOVE it. As this poster said, it is not that bright in person. Its very subtle, and classy, but does not take away from the "sporty" look of the black seats with red trim.

I bought mine off the lot, but would have chosen this option on the sport line anyway.
