What trim with Saddle Brown interior?

Guys,

Have a quick question.

There was a thread on this before but I couldn't find it.

If you're going with the Saddle Brown interior, what would you recommend. The Anthracite Trim or the Walnut Trim?

Please pass on your suggestions...Thanks!

Anthracite but maybe I'm biased because I don't enjoy the wood grain look...

I'd probably go with the Anthracite. IMO, the Walnut doesn't provide enough contrast to Saddle. Anthracite would match well with the pearl chrome finisher and set well against the black dash.

Too bad they did away with Grey Poplar in the F30. That would be a great combo!

You are probably thinking of the poll I posted. There were some good arguments from both sides.

http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=11837955

The poll showed 25 to 11 preferred Anthracite to Walnut.

I ultimately chose the anthracite for mine (saddle brown leather, imperial blue exterior). I should be getting it within 7-10 days so I'll let you know if I have any regrets.

Anthracite if you're younger... Walnut if you're older... lol

IMO !!

I have anthracite and I'm 27..
But again its personal preference, I think Walnut gives the inside an old school look...

Yeh I think you're right!

I'm 23 and went with Anthracite too.

I like it but I feel it's too dark. Oh well...
