Color combo dillema...

So I just placed an order for 2010 328xi in Blue Water with Chestnut Brown Leather.....but now I have seconds thoughts if it was a right choice. I picked my fav exterior and interior color and put it together. But everybody around me keeps saying that the colors don't match...now I'm considering switching it to Barbera red....although I tried to escape from dark exterior.

Opinions appreciated!

We custom ordered that same color combo. When the car arrived, to be honest, it looks horrible. We called it a "clown car". it really looked bad. We then re ordered the car with oyster interior and wow it looks fantastic.

Please do not get blue water and brown interior, it looks way too weird.

That's what I was worried. My DH keeps saying it will be "ugly duckling".LOL. I'm sticking with the chestnut interior, now need to decide for either Barbera or Space Gray.....

Thanks for your input!

i dont like the look of Barbera Red with the Chestnut

chestnut with alpine white also looks good

White is out of question...as for the Gray Space...it's not a "girly" color. Not a lot matches with Chestnut....

Yeah, I've seen the Platinum Bronze. That was my first choice, but with the saddle leather. But then I decided it looks more like a "granny" car...I have few hours to decide and it doesn't look too great....

I don't think BR will go well with chestnut either. Space Grey will work well. Why are you not interested in AW? It's a great color and a solid match for chestnut!

I don't like white cars. I decided for Water Blue with Oyster interior.
