I love Dravit. Photo's don't do it one ounce of justice. The color shifts dramatically in sunlight.

I'll get some more this evening with more light in the cabin. I was disappointed with both the 'Mesh Effect' and Tetragon aluminum. Both felt/looked cheap.

You're not joking. Saw the mesh on the floor model 330i and hated it immediately.

Here are some close-up's of the Oak open-pored. It has a great texture to it and infinitely nicer than anything offered on the F30.

This oak open-pored trim goes well with mocha and cognac interiors.
I think the ash-grey gloss trim will work better with black interior.

Thanks for the close-up pictures! It helps to see the details. Great combo!

Doesn't ash have brown in it?

I like the oak open pore but not sure how it would work with a black interior.

I saw a close-up ash-grey trim picture posted in this forum before. It's mostly grey to me.

It's gray or brown depending on the lighting. The brighter it is the more brown it is.

I really wanted to like it but it reminds me of the textures from IKEA table tops

You thinking about Mocha?

I went Dravit with Mocha. I have always gone the black interiors and I wanted something different. I expect to pick up the car in a week.

Nice color choice! Still kicking myself for not going that route, or my usual choice of black. The Cognac leather is starting to look better, but now I'm worried about pant dye staining the seat (ie blue jeans, black pants..). Hopefully the lease is up before that occurs.

Finally, I brought the car home after doing ceramic coating and full front wrap. I used IGL Kenzo as the coating so far I love it more than the Opticoat pro plus.

My 2 cents:
I have a Portimao Blue (Honda/Lexus blue) fully loaded with black interior I love it. One thing I would change would be the interior I would make it oyster white.

Had white interior on my 4 and it increased the "spaciousness" 10 fold but it stains super fast!

Of your color choices I would only chose one of the follow :

Dravit (Audi like color): only if you wanna be flashy it's the equally head turning as the Portimao Blue, but like PB less executive looking. I would get Dravit but I'm a self professed pour D-Bag and that's my style

Tanzanite blue w/ Cognac interior would be my vote: it's classy, executive, lux, and serious.

Tanzanite Blue with Cognac would be my choice. I have that combo and couldn't ask for a better match. Getting car tinted now and will have pics afterwards.

Couldn't justify the extra spend for the M340, but had I; Dravit Grey would have been it. Close to the old Space Grey which is not offered anymore.

Pulled the trigger on a 330i xDrive - Mediterranean Blue with Cognac Leather and Open Pore Maple Trim. Will be coming out of a 6er, which was a unicorn leasing situation that I couldn't pass up.

I placed an order for a citrine II black metallic but I was informed that they only start production with that color in July 2019 so I have to wait longer to get mine.
Has anyone here ordered that color or got any information about availability of citrine II black?

Darn, I actually picked the grey/brown gloss trim originally and then switched it to the open pore oak grey trim at the last minute before they started production. From the pics on the BMW website it looks more brown and I thought it would have looked strange having brown wood with a more sporty black/blue stitching interior vs. a more luxurious interior. From the pics posed here I think I would have been okay with the glossy grey/brown trim. I don't really like the open pore grey trim but there weren't really any good choices like carbon fiber to go with so I went with what I thought would look better with the interior color I picked.

Yeah I agree there aren't many good choices. When I order later year I'm going to go blue black/blue stitching and then probably the aluminum mesh. The open pore wood looked really dark when I checked it out in person.

Yeah same here I ticked off some options to save some money. I do regret not adding like Driver Assistant Pro and Cognac interior. Mine should be here mid July. Maybe my SA will let me order another one.
