Interior-which color leather

Wanted to get everyone's feedback on what color leather looked great as well as easiest to maintain and last. Color of car: titanium silver. Thought about the Mojave but not sure with the white stitching, if that color looked rich or not.

Hmmm...I don't think I would pick that with titanium, I think it looks kind of muddy. I would do black. Oyster would probably look great too, but not the easiest to maintain.

I love the black sports seats with double white stitching.

Black is the safe bet with TiAG. It's the most commonly paired interior color and will be an easy resale. But you're buying the car for yourself, so that should only be minor consideration.
I've seen the Mojave in person and it is not too bad. Oyster would also work.

I like Chestnut…not too dark, not too light and is not your run of the mill color.
But that’s just me, and I’ve been accused of not having taste more than once.

Agreed. I have not received my car yet, but I ordered black leather with the titanium silver. My husband has gray leather in his BMW, and they are all right.

I got a Titanium Silver X3 with Mojave Leather and Wave Wood (just arrived at the dealer... picking it up on Saturday!). I was on the fence about that combo but saw it in another dealership and think it looks great.

I've had two previous BMW's with beige interiors (what was I thinking) and the thing you have to remember is that EVERYTHING is beige! Lower dash, headliner, upper door panels... EVERYTHING.

If you're okay with that, then cool, but just know that up front.

I picked black, but the chestnut looks great to. I think either will need lilltle effort to keep looking clean. But you should pick the color that you like. I also picked metallic black even though black exterior is much harder to keep looking clean. Picked it because I like the looks of a clean black X3 the best.

Check out this thread for the beige interior. I thought I was set on Mineral Silver and the Mojave / Wave combo with the SAP package, but now that the M-sport has come out I've been thinking of changing to Deep Sea Blue with Beige / Wave. I think M-sport would be better in Deep Sea Blue than MS, and Beige with the Blue seems like a better match than Mojave. Though I do like the Mojave interior and I'm starting to talk myself into the idea of Blue with Mojave.

As for the OP, I'd end up with Black interior if I was going to go TS.

Oyster really holding up well, doing a quick wet wipe of drivers seat every few days to prevent grime build up, had beige in last car and it still looked great after 4 years when I changed to X3

Go with what you like. You can justify any combo as long as YOU like it.

Suggestion:
There is a very nice iPad X3 catalog app that lets you visualize some of the specifications. You can visualize interior and exterior, but in separate windows. However, it can help you a lot, for example, to see the combos of the seat colors and trims in the car from two different perspectives.
My the most favorite combo is Mineral Silver outside and Beige seats with Siena Wood inside. I did not order Beige seats for myself being concerned how it would show dirt and other smudges, but to me this is the ultimate look.

For myself, I have ordered Mineral Silver outside and Brown Nevada Mojave with Siena Wood for interior.

If you do not have iPad handy, I can take a few screen shots of combos for you that you may wish to see this way.

I'm on the fence between the two and my wife wants black. I think it will be too dark with a black sapphire exterior.

Iím just afraid to clog the thread, but I hope it helps others too.
Does anyone knows what is the max sum of all attachements allowed on this web site?

By the way, both of your combos look nice.
