Hello

I just put in my order for a 2020 330xi. It is a done deal but they are holding off on putting in the order for 2 weeks to ensure the car is delivered at a time that works for me. This gives me 2 weeks to ensure I pick the best color combination.

I'm going with Portimao Blue exterior. My other options were Mineral White or Sunset Orange. My last 4 cars were white and I'm not sure I would love the orange so the blue seemed to be the way to go to have something different that stands out. For the interior I'm choosing Oyster leather. I like the contrast with the blue plus I wasn't a fan of the other colors with the blue.

This leaves me with the last piece I am unsure of. What trim should I go with to finish off the look? Aluminum? Wood? Does anyone have this color interior and if so what did you go with? Any opinions and pictures are greatly welcomed and appreciated.

Open pore oak is the most popular and that's what I'd pick.

Just a suggestion, don't have them wait to put in the order. They can't guarantee you a time frame and you never know exactly what week your car will be scheduled to be built. Not to mention there could be any number of reasons the shipping could be delayed. Go ahead and have them put in the order and you can then wait to pick it up after it arrives.

I ordered Oyster upholstery with Oak Grain Open Pore trim. This trim is black in color. I was looking for a sport/tech look for my vehicle. Had I wanted a more luxurious look I would have selected Ash Grey-Brown High Gloss trim instead. This trim is black with a hint of brown.

I felt the Maple Open Pore trim added too much brown to the Oyster upholstery. This trim would go better with the Cognac upholstery, in my opinion. Personally, I didn't care for the aluminum trims, due to their patterns. Otherwise, those may have been acceptable to me.

The two-tone dash was one of the reasons I selected the Oyster upholstery. It brightens up the interior. In addition to the black interior choices, the Mocha upholstery has an all-black dashboard. This is likely due to the lack of contrast between black and Mocha.

Not a fan of the two-tone dash or that sort of interior contrast. I prefer uniformity. To each their own. I'd go with the oak open pore.

Oak Open Pore goes well

Not a fan of the two tone dash - that sort of interior contrast doesn't appeal to me. Prefer uniformity. To each their own.

I'd like to see the fine wood ash gray-brown with it before deciding on the oak. There is a bit of warmth to the leather, at least in the pics above, and the ash might be very handsome with it without being too brown.

Wood is pretty timeless. Something like the aluminum tetragon is very timely and will look outdated long before any wood does.

Here's a post showing the Oyster upholstery with the Ash Grey-Brown High Gloss trim:

Oh yeah that's a perfect combo. A tiny bit of warmth in the grain to go with the leather but predominately gray to match everything else in the car. Thanks for finding that.

I went with open pore because it has a matte finish. The gloss trim in my current car reflects sunlight on my evening commute and annoys me

I don't get the allure of Oyster. Yeah it is absolutely gorgeous but the tendency for it to get dirty is just too much of an issue that I would have to pass on it.

I've had it before and it doesn't get as dirty as one would think. And an easy wipe down of the seats cleans it right up

I have ivory interior currently with a baby and a child in sports. It really doesn't get that dirty...

Don't forget there is an option for the WalkaNappa Leather Dashboard!

Agreed. Don't understand why Bmw does the two toned dash on non black interior ... it looks bad.

I’ve went for the Oyster with Aluminium Mesh Effect trim. Body color is Alpine White. I created a thread to discuss it: https://g20.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1665453
