but here it is http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115706

same tread as drvai's but you didn't look far enough, page three has some with the black novillo leather. This is not a popular trim so not so many pictures of it. My car will have this combination Sycamore wood and novillo leather also So I am axious as you are to see how it looks on other cars.

Thanks for that, you are correct, I did not scroll the entire way down.

I am on the fence, so when you get yours, please post some pictures. I have some time to change it.
Thanks

It's hard to get an accurate picture of the color, It seems to vary according to exposure, lighting angle ect.. but I think the contrast between black and the trim will be nice.

Don't worry. Just be aware that's it's a very variable color and pics won't get you the exact idea. You need to assume that the color will look brownish.

The thing is that it's neither black or brown, so for example if you want a fox red interior with black wood, you won't get the combo. The same problem with black interior/brown wood.

IMO, back interior looks nice (and sporty) with aluminum. If you want the all black look, then you will have to pick the carbon leather.

No worries

I ordered extended black leather and sycamore anthracite in my e90 m3. I was also worried about how it would look and was ready to pass on the car if it looked like crap or really out of place in an m3. It is very dark (almost black) with just a hint of brown. It is much darker than it looks in any of the forum pictures. Looks great. If you're going for the GT look and feel, this is the perfect choice.

At the risk of getting flamed - the m3 is a GT, not a sports car. If it has more than 2 seats, it ain't a sports car. Silver or carbon leather won't turn it into one. Besides, 295 Torque is freeking anemic for a sports car and the only dissapointment in the car. Never-the-less, I love the car.

In an e90, I could see it working. Would not be my choice, but if you are trying for a classier, GT look it would work. On a coupe with CF roof i just could not see that working.

I have mentioned this in other forums but, the wood IS paintable, as is the aluminum. I ordered FR + SA and if I hate it I am going to take the wood off and paint it the body color (SG) or piano black. There are always options.

Also +1 on the GT comments. It is a GT car. I still don't see how power seats, nav/tech pkg., heated seats and a few other options somehow "retain" the sports car appeal but that wood would kill this appeal.
