Modern LINE: Oyster Leather Option

Can anyone confirm BMW has changed the way they offer the Modern Oyster interior?

My CA recently told me they now give you a black dash and steering wheel now. Yet there are not any pictures searchable in the site nor has anyone posted a Modern purchase in a while.

I think a Modern Mineral Gray/Oyster with 19s would look good. But not sold on oyster interior until i see pictures. Online Configuration still shows dash and wheel as Oyster as well.

Thanks!

Really surprised no one has a picture on this site. And by doing research on my own, I rather ask this group.

Modern Line is not very popular sadly. I have yet to see one. I'll browse through a few dealers websites to see if I can find anything for you.

I found a 2013 Modern Line with Oyster. The upperdash and steering is still Oyster and not black.

Just NOT sporty! But thanks for this, you convinced me to pass on Modern...

When will BMW realize the 2011 335i had a better color options list than all these LINES!

Lines = less choice for the enthusiast.

Modern Line only gets the black dash/wheel when you order the black interior. Used to be (MY2012), you got the light colored wheel/dash when you ordered the black interior.

So, Oyster will still get light dash/wheel no matter what.

The saddle leather on the luxury line looks amazing....

I do agree the Oyster/Black on E90s looked amazing.

The modern line also gets the ugly oyster gauges. I liked everything about the outside of the Modern Line but not the interior. I'm happy with my M-Sport. I would have gotten a Luxury line in the Dark Blue with Saddle inside if I could have found a manual.

But the 2-tone dash doesn't, and the color is orangy in person. 5 Series got the saddle color right...

I'd skip the Modern line and either go Sport/M Sport/Base...the luxury line and Modern have the worst rims of the lot, and most odd interiors. Very chick like.

Totally agree, and the same here. +1

It's all about choices and feelings yet I am sick of reading people dislike the Modern line option. I love the interior oyster color and would not ever trade it with the saddle brown, never ever!

For the right buyer it's a perfect fit. But it's more luxury than sporty. And I really think the oyster interior would work with a black dash and black steering wheel like the 11's had.

The tabacco color on the x5 is really a winner. Or the new brown on 5 series individual. Beats both colors in my book.

Your CA is absolutely correct. If you go ones BMW's website, you can spec a 2013 F30 Modern Line with the black steering wheel and dash if you get the black interior.

Here is a picture of my 2013 modern line. Ifyou get the oyster seats you get the oyster dash and wheel, if you choose black seats you get black dash and black wheel.
