Color Combo and Line Advice Needed

Advice please (coming from Glacier Silver and oyster). I'm a 30 yr old professional wanting something more unique but conservative as we'll.

My dealership basically had very minimal choices so all I'm relying on are internet pictures before building. These are the colors I'm interested in and I just need to know if any of these combos don't go we'll and any suggestions with these colors:

Exterior colors:
Black (jet or metallic?)
White (arctic or mineral?)
Melbourne red
Glacier silver

Interior:
Black (maybe only if I get red?)
Saddle brown (goes with black. Any other exterior colors?).
Beige


Concerns: Some pics show saddle brown dark, which I like. Other pics show it more like a lighter camel color, which I don't like. I really like the sport seats, but like a black interior the least out of the above interior colors. Not crazy about the red stitching (is it that bad)? Exterior red looks hot but how would saddle brown look in red? Also considering white, but don't know which white and if saddle brown will go with white? Is saddle brown "old"?

Finally, not sure how I like the luxury rims, do they look good in person? Doubt I'll get a response from this long post, ha! Thanks to any thoughtful responses!

It's nice to get a female perspective on these forums once in a while.
I had saddle brown in my e92 and it compliments black exterior quite well.
Sport seats only come in black, beige and coral red. Good luck!

i'm in South Florida too. what dealership were you looking to buy it from?

before you can make the combo color choice, you def have to decide on which line you want to go with.
luxury, sport or M

Want the sport seats but with non sport colors! I think I'm leaning towards sapphire black with saddle brown. I really like the red in sport, but not sure about it on lux line...

I have glacier silver now and love it (have oyster now). Tough choice... Vista didn't really have much inventory to look at in person for what Im looking for.

well if you go with Vista or Lauderdale, let them know that FLorida Bimmer sent you for special pricing. ask for Daniel at Vista or Dominic at Lauderdale.

hope this helps and goodluck and hope to see you at one of our meets!

I didn't think you could get the Luxury Line with sport seats in the US, so if you want sport seats, the only way is Sport line or M-sport - in which case the only choice is M-sport as it looks much better.

Black sapphire exterior with beige interior is classy and nice and Glacier silver with red interior is both sporty and unique. Estoril blue with beige is also nice, but maybe a bit to flashy for you? Mineralgrey is also nice, and goes well with both beige and red.

The F30 looks great in any color; but since you had a silver one, I believe a Black sapphire M-sport with beige interior would be the right one this time

I'd go black with saddle brown... classy yet sporty. It's a great contrast and adds a little uniqueness to the sea of 3 series in our area.

Great choice!!!

I have saddle brown in my M Sport and AW on the exterior, I get compliments every day. You chose the best interior out there IMO.

Have fun bud!
