Alpine white Luxury Line. Saddle Brown or Black leather?

Please help me! I will probably order a Alpine White 318d Luxury Line with dark windows. I cant`t decide if I`m going to pick complete black or saddle-brown leather interior. It will be wooden panel at the dashboard, and dark cover in the ceiling. I like both color, so I have very difficult to decide! Which one do you think will suit this car best?

Black interior will make the tinted windows appear darker, but I personally LOVE the saddle brown interior and would recommend it over black. Alpine White over Saddle is a really nice combination.

Does anyone have experience with jeans / dark clothes that rub off color to Saddle Brown leather?

Saddle brown is nice but they should use more brown in the interior and less black - it looks just a bit patchy to my eyes.

That said I would have chosen the dark interior in my order but cloth\ leather is only available in oyster...

I've had beige interior on my 2006 330i for 5 years and and never had any issues with color transfer from jeans or dark colored clothes. Saddle brown is darker, so it would mask it even more. I don't think that is something you need to worry about.

Black

Black on the white looks fantastic. Classy, yet sporty and edgy at the same time.

Not really sure your demographic but the saddle brown on alpine looked kind of like a 60+ drivers car......IMO

My subjective opinion, but I like the saddle brown with a dark blue or black exterior. With Alpine white I like a grey or black interior... As of my reply you are tied 10 to 10, so it will be interesting to see how this poll shakes out..

Yeh, it doesn`t make it more easy to pick..

In the "Official Alpine White f30 photo thread" page 2, there are some pictures of a beautiful Alpine White Luxury with Saddle Brown interior (a woman standing beside the car). I wouldn`t thought this color would match the Alpine white, but after seeing this pictures I think it looks very classy!

Thank you all for your opinions! Today I ordered a Alpine white 318d with Saddle Brown interior, and black cover in the ceiling. I was lucky, because the car was already in production, and I will recive the car after only 5 weeks from now!

-I drop the tinted windows, and went with a electric sun visor in the rear window.

You will NOT be disappointed with Saddle Brown...I cant share any pics because the car hasn't arrived. Should be 4 to 6 weeks for me now!

OP is not in the US, so they have the benefit of being able to get sport seats with Saddle Brown.

Alpine White with Saddle Brown is a great looking combination, you should enjoy it.

Saddle brown looks good new. Uncertain how well it will wear over time. It may show its age more readily over darker colors. I dunno. Just a thought.
