My LMB has a silver interior but the exterior color makes it seem like a real light shade of blue. I fell in love with it when I saw it. If you go with a lighter color, just keep in mind that maintenance is a pain. Black is also nice but really hot, especially here in SFL. Good luck.

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 ordered black simply for longevity. Have had grey and tan. Over time black looks better for longer.

I have a feeling it's waaaay too late for an individual color but Rust Brown would be my #1 choice.

Stock color: Palladium/Black/Black

I didn't ask about individual colors, but rumor here is that no e90 individual colors are being accepted due to the additional delay. It would push the e90 production past the October deadline.

How dark is the palladium silver interior? In the BMW configuration tool it looks pretty dark, but in all the pics of it on the forums it looks pretty light.

Right now I'm leaning towards black and might call my CA tomorrow morning to see if I can still make the change.

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, like you, was somewhat torn between the silver and the black, so I went with both! Looks beautiful and is a hell of a lot cheaper than an Individual interior (which I would have gone with if I hadn't run out of time)!

Silver with aluminum trim. Nice compliment to the lmb exterior.

Thanks for all the opinions. Was intending to switch from bamboo to black, but the car went into 150 status before I called my CA. No biggie. I think I'll like it ... I was dithering a lot, which probably means I'll like either.

The palladium silver is actually fairly light-medium gray with a blue hue, goes well with any blues IMHO and not quite as dead feeling as the gray was in the E46.

Since you're 150 tho, bamboo it is! It'll look nice, just invest in some good leather cleaner to keep it looking good and conditioned.

Bamboo does not get dirty it just wears like good leather tends to- it changes but it's classy.
