Interior color options for US model 2 series cars?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I've been checking the forums everyday for the past 3 weeks or so and I'm very curious as to what the interior color options will be.

Obviously no one knows yet...but let's start some speculation on this topic...
I've seen many F30 320i's, 328i's, and 335i's comparing the interior color spec options.

I am very particular of the all "Monotone" solid color interiors such as the current taupe colored interior available a the 2013 1 series. For example purposes the 2013 1 series cars out right now all are 2 tone interior color options other than the taupe.

I'm patiently waiting for a 2 series cabrio and have narrowed the color choices down to a few colors. Liquid Blue or Orion silver are 2 colors that are high on my list. For "monotone" colors out right now in the F30...there is venetian beige and this oyster color (as featured on the modern line F30)

Modern line is done for next year for the F30 however so not sure if that oyster interior will continue (*this is not a 2 tone oyster interior).

I'm sure the 2 series will have lots of nice 2 tone interior colors too...more readily available.

What interior color choices do you guys prefer?

I really hope that BMW does not do the "lines" on the bmw 2er. It might be a possibility since we will only be getting a 228i and M235i.. and I don't see them selling the M235i with "modern", "sport", "luxury"..

I built an F30 M sport for fun, and gosh the choices of interior were not my favorite because of the "lines"!! For example, my ideal F30 I build would have a modern line interior but the exterior would be M sport.. but you can't have both. There are also people on the F30 forums who are angry as well, since they can't get a saddle brown interior unless they choose modern.

I am not a big fan of the single color choice interiors... and also not a fan of aluminum interior.

Ideally, my build would be:

EBII exterior
Oyster Interior(like the current 1er, where it is half white half black).
Anthracite/some dark wood/or carbon fiber trim.

If BMW offers the new cloth M235i seats, I would be fine with those as well.
I just don't really like the 3 options of all beige, all black, or all red!

But if its anything like the F20 M135i, options will pretty much be:

Black interior, Beige Interior, Red Interior
Aluminum,Hexagonal Aluminum Trim
Blue or Black stripe

Sad to say this but my 11' 128i convertible lease was up July 17th. I ended up turning in the car Wednesday.

I was going to extend the lease 6 months...waiting for the 2 series convertible, but the 2er cabrio will not be out in the USA until April 2014.

The max lease extension is 6 months...which would only get me to January.

With all the thought put into this over the last 4-5 months I did something I never thought I would ever do: Get a 4 door

I didn't want a old 3 series coupe, and there's no point to wait for a 4er coupe considering I ONLY really want a 2 series convertible...SO I just got a NEW F30 320i sedan in Sapphire Black with HIDs and BBS CF wheels to hold me over for the next 33-36 months.

By then I'm sure I'll be able to plan out an amazing build on a NEW 2016 2er cabrio.

Prefer:

Mulberry, assuming I can get the Techno-Violet exterior

Back to reality --- my e46 m3 had Cinnamon interior with alpine white on the outside ; I liked it and it got a lot of compliments.

I believe I mentioned this before...but I have been researching the interior color options on the new 3 series and 4 series...and it seems as if BMW offers nothing but the general black or tan interior colors. Add in the usual red or brown colors..Not much more.

On a side note:
This past Wednesday I picked up a new Sapphire Black/Black F30 320i (non x drive) for a daily driver. It's a great car no doubt.
My gripe with it is that for any 320i trim level you can only opt for black or tan interior. SMH.

IMHO These new BMW cars coming out are superior to the older cars in every aspect, but the interiors are well designed BUT cost cutting Kills it for people who just want a nice grey colored interior. Pisses me off. Had to vent!

Can't wait for the 2er long enough though. I'm planning on ordering a 2017 model in summer 2016.

I'd like Carbon Black over Chestnut interior, but I doubt it'll be available.

Betting US 2 series interior choices will be similar to the current F30 or X1 (sport lines get only 2 or 3 options)

Hope they have some kind of light colored interior...something light like 12' F30 modern line full oyster, full light grey like my E88, or the Z4's Canberra Beige. Hoping for something like that...got a few years to plan this out now that I just acquired a F30 of my own.

I would suspect that the interior (and exterior) choices will mirror that of the F20 1 series.

For your sake, here is the current F20 1 series interior options, of which some are line-specific (currently there is only the Urban and Sport line on the F20):


Cloth 'Hexagon'/Alcantara Anthracite (M-sport only)



Cloth 'Move' Anthracite



Cloth 'Track' Anthracite/Grey highlight (Sport line only)



Cloth 'Track' Anthracite/Red highlight (Sport line only)



Cloth/leather combination 'Metro' Silver/Black (Urban line only)



Cloth/leather combination 'Metro' Silver/Pearl Grey (Urban line only)



Leather Dakota Black



Leather Dakota Black/Red highlight (Sport line only)



Leather Dakota Coral Red/Black highlight (M-sport only)



Leather Dakota Everest Grey/Black highlight (M-sport only)



Leather Dakota Oyster Oyster Dark



Leather Dakota Pearl Grey/Black highlight (Urban line only)

I agree that the M235i won't be available in any other line but even if the US are only getting the 228i and M235i, the 228i may still be available with a line, even though it will be the only model to get it in. Remember that a large part of the world will get many other 2 series models including the 228i and if there are lines available for them, I don't see BMW making an exception for the US. I would think that the 220i and 220d would eventually be brought to the US like the 320i and 320d (328d) was recently.

And yeah it sucks that the saddle brown interior is only available in the luxury line for the F30. It is certainly the best interior on the F30.

Thanks for the insightful post .
I personally really like the Leather Dakota Everest Grey/Black highlight (M-sport only) and the Leather Dakota Pearl Grey/Black highlight (Urban line only) and the Cloth 'Hexagon'/Alcantara Anthracite (M-sport only). Hopefully at least one of these makes it in

don't expect the CLOTH options in the US market. There is no german automaker currently offering a true cloth option on seats----just vinyl/leatherette and a few with Alcantara/leather combinations----so Alcantara is possible, but almost impossible to see cloth options.
