Le Mans Blue owners, what's your interior color?

Help! My e90 order is quickly nearing 150 status and I need to finalize the interior color. Exterior is going to be Le Mans Blue, but I can't decide on an interior color. Currently, I'm most prone towards Bamboo Beige or Palladium Silver. Black is in the running too.

So, if you're a current Le Mans Blue owner, please tell me what your interior color choice was. I'd be interested in interior trim color too.

Thanks.

i dont own it but i think bamboo should be first by a wide margin, followed distantly by palladium and black in a toss up.

i have silver with my lmb. love it but in honesty because of how blue the exterior is, it almost feels like an extremely light shade of blue interior. or maybe thats just the blue led interior i have going on.

either way i dont think you could go wrong with either selection mentioned above - bamboo or black would both look great in my opinion. i also have carbon fiber leather trim and with the silver it looks great and black would as well, i feel the bamboo may need a different trim color to mesh well.

I almost got LMB with Fox red. I've seen the combination before, and it looks absolutely awesome . It's not for everyone, though

In my opinion, Fox Red looks like you're trying a Superman theme, Palladiam Silver is an old lady color, and Bamboo will get too dirty too easily. I think black is the only way to go. Black Extended is a waste of money.
Being in FL, I really wish I did Speedcloth. I sweat from the second I sit down until I get out of the car, no matter what the temperature is inside the car. Also, the leather BMW puts in the M3 is garbage, so those lighter colors will look worn sooner than black.

I have seen black, silver, and fox. My favorite by far was the fox, but definitely extreme.

Bamboo looks great but will take work to keep clean. If it's a weekend/date/toy car then go bamboo. If it will be your daily, morning coffee, hauling everyone and everything around car then go black.

NO BLACK! BLACK LEATHER IS BORING! Bamboo and any color of blue goes very well together.

Here is a LMS / BB E93 for you....

Black leather with brushed aluminum trim -- carbon leather was too much black and I didn't think wood belonged in an M3, at least not one with clearly sporty exterior and interior colors. And as others have said, Extended Leather with black just isn't worth it because the quality of leather they use on the transmission tunnel and underside of the dash feels like plastic.

I also got the non-Competition 19" rims (preferred the look compared to the other 2 options and liked that they were forged). I like my combo because blue contrasts well with black, red, silver, and orange, which just so happen to be all of the colors on the exterior and interior of the car.

I have IB not LB exterior but since the colors are close I thought I would comment. For my interior I have Bamboo Beige (not extended) with Carbon Leather and I love the color combo. Good luck.

Palladium Silver extended. If I had to do it again, I'd just go extended black, since I tore'd apart mine interior.

I got bamboo with the antracite trim. There's a subtle tan color in the trim that picks up the seat color really nicely. Was worried that the bamboo would be too light, but was really happy when I finally saw it on delivery day in Munich.
