Your opinion needed please

HI,

I am looking to purchase a 2012 X3 35i Msport pkg and was wondering how would alpine white with nevada chestnut and Fineline Wave Wood Trim combination would look?

I have seen many ppl on this forums have the black with nevada chestnut.

Thanks,

I contemplated that combo...I've seen it at the dealer and it looks great...I ended up going with the
Black exterior and Chestnut interior but AW/Chestnut was my 2nd option...there are pics of the combo you are asking about..take your time if you have a chance go to your dealer they might just have an X3 with that combo...good luck

Thank you,

I asked the dealer if they have this combo and mentioned that normally it is a special order and not many customer get it.

Any interior combo looks great with AW and Black exterior...let's us know your build once you made a decision.
Good luck!!

I personally think chestnut is the best interior colour to compliment AW. It can look much lighter than it actually is in photos. Worth looking at a sample or finding a few pictures taken without a flash in the photos forum

Well I have been trying to find the best pic of it and saw on few diff. on forums but some seem have flash or the lighting wasn't rite in the pic.

the best would be to see it in person but as i mentioned earlier that it not a common color combo ppl get according to the local bmw dealer.

I'm surprised your dealer says that as I've seen a few BMWs with AW and chestnut or similar red/brown colour leather

Have you seen these pics? Looks great without flash and a decent camera:

I'm picking up mine tonight with that colour combo so I'll try to post pics soon. I like the white just cause it makes the car appear even bigger than it actually is and it catches your eye pretty quickly while the chesnut ads a little umph to it.
So far I've seen only one white X3 on the road and it's just stunning!

bigpun,
I saw a Space Grey/Chestnut a few weeks ago @ Annapolis BMW. The tone of the Chesnut is leaning more to red than cinnamon, you have to see in person before ordering it.

Ordered mine on Oct 1st, X3 28i/Sparkling Bronze/Mojave/Alu and will pick it up this weekend.
