Individual Black Merino Vs Mineral Grey

Hi all!

I'm ordering an F32 soon, and i am almost convinced to get black individual merino leather, with the extra leather dashboard extension...

Does anyone have the Mineral grey / black individual leather combo?

Or any pics of this over some other model?


Thanks!

I have just ordered the same interior following seeing the photos on here and then going to see a car with merino leather.

The leather is a notable step up in quality over the standard which in comparison to other manufactures as this price level I think is poor.

You also get the bonus of the extended leather elements which I think is quite good value.

Too dark color scheme. A MR exterior, or an Individual Blue would be nice.

Every time I see the interior it convinces me I have done the right thing.

Cidair - did you have the dash done as well? Do you have any pictures of the rear or door cards you can share?

Thank you all for your answers! Cidair, that is one gorgeous f30!!! Looks better than i thought it would! Do you have any close pic from the outside, where we could see the contrast wit the piping and the mineral grey?

I was thinking of tanzanite blue, but it is too blueish i'm afraid. I had one azurite black E92, and it was a stunner...

Garage List
I went with the merino black leather and leather trim options on the inside. The leather trim is really just on the dashboard, the rest is piano black. I was a bit worried how dark it would be inside so added the sunroof to lighten things up.

After 2 months I'm still loving it

The Merino leather are soooooo much better and higher quality than the standard Dakota. Well worth the extra money. It is softer, smoother and looks much more luxurious.

I can agree it's a dark combo, but for me it works just fine. Especially with the performance grilles, tinted windows and shadow line.

I'm very happy with my car.

I'm converted! I think possibly the brushed alu. will look good inside, to make some contrast.. does anyone know if it is possible with the Merino? I think the only choices are Piano black or those woods..

Just look at the pictures! :-)

Brushed aluminum - that's what I have in my car.

Hi Cidair, i was refering to the dashboard, wich your pics don't show, but i've seen it is possible.

You probably have the best configuration out there!!

I would also love to see a Tanzanite with this Merino colour, that must be spot on as well.

The pics above show you can do brushed Alu. I can also confirm its possible on the f32 as well as I have gone for the same spec.

You are absolutely right! I was watching the pics over the iphone, and didn't realize the door handles.

This will be my choice also.

I have seen the specs from bmw for the xt1 option ( extra leather individual dashboard) and bmw states that the top of the door covers will also be in leather, like the extended merino for the M4 and M3.

Can anyone confirm this?

Those are good news indeed!! Especially if with contrast stiching, to match the arm rests..
