For those of you who have seen Santorin Blue: A question.

I was curious as to what interior would function best with the exterior color of Santorin Blue? In the USA we are denied special leather, but special paint is sometimes an option.

I am leaning towards black right now, just because its classic, and bamboo is my favorite, but I think it will clash.

What color do you think would go best with Santorin?




Thanks for your help in advance. You don't know how lucky you are to be able to easily get BMW Individual.

Oh God! You beat me to it. This was the color I wanted to order when I'm ready to buy a E9x M3. I was leaning toward the silver leather myself. But Black would probably be the best!

when going with such a crazy exterior color, I think you need to go subtle with the interior to keep it classy..therefore my vote goes to BLACK!

Normally I would agree. Especially considering the fact that I am planning on doing some CF on the interior. And I love how the Palladium blue-tint might compliment the exterior color, much in the same way dove gray was sex on the e36 with estoril.

However.....came across these today:





I don't think that looks half bad. Bamboo would be my first choice on the standard interior....

Bamboo wouldn't be half as bad. Go for it!

wow, that brings back some memories. I had an E36 328i sport about 8yrs ago in that colour. It is awesome. My car had light grey interior and looked great, just a bit of regular maintenance needed to keep on top of it.
