Lemon Interior in the E90 M3

Any of you guys out there have Lemon Interior in your E90 M3? I was talking with ihyln and he didnt inquire about the Lemon Interior when he bought his E90 M3 but I know its possible for the E90 335i (Priority 1 Option) so I'm guessing its gotta be available for the M3. I checked out the "Official Lemon Interior Thread". . .I gotta have it!

Not a chance for M3, sorry. M3 interior is slightly different (seats, extended leather option) - not a simple "take the parts from the 3 series and put them in".

I'm not looking for a swap or anything. . .I'm wondering if you can order it from the factory with the Lemon. . .Honestly, I would pay a solid chunk of $ to get it!

Plus the Novillo leather is quite different from Dakota leather. Much finer grain.

Yeah I know. My point it, you cannot reason that it will be available for the M3 just because its in the 335i. It would require more development and cost. M3 gets its own interior colors. No Lemon.

A friend of mine has it in his 135i (Priority 1 option as well) & it looks rather nice w/the 2-tone interior. However, I hate light leather since it's much, much, much harder to keep clean.

Slight rant: BMW & Mercedes leather is nowhere near as soft as Lexus leather! Sigh...

M3 and Lemon are two words that should never be spoken together!

From what I've heard, the lemon interior is very nice but it gets beat up pretty quickly.
