Anyone seen a Milano Beige Metallic F10?

From the bmwusa website, when I chose the Milano Beige Metallic color for the exterior, it looks pretty cool. I looks more luxurious than sporty. Would the 550i look good with that color?

Has anyone seen it in real life and what do you think of it?

What interior color would go with Milano Beige Metallic exterior? Would Cinnamon Brown Dakota Leather look o.k.?

I've seen it. I liked it a lot. I would agree with your thoughts of luxury, as I called it champagne when I asked the dealer about it. He did bring up a good point though, and that's about resale as this won't be one of the more desirable colors that folks are looking for. As for interior, I don't care for the cinnamon. I would go with the oyster/black.

In the BMW brochure they list recommended color combinations and that is not one. It would look horrible.

Have you looked on Cashmere Silver Metallic as well? It suppose to look like Milano Beige but a bit lighter. However I haven't seen it in real live. Will be good to get an opinion from somebody who's seen Cashmere Silver Metallic?

I saw the Cashmere Silver and decided against it largely because I don't want a beige interior and I just couldn't imagine it with anything else. It's not a bad color, but it is very, very subtle. JMO

My sister has it on her 750. If you like light cars (she does), it's a really nice color. With the body contours, there's a lot of subtleties of color that come out in some kinds of light. (Personally, I prefer dark cars.)

My wife prefers light color car so I was looking into lighter colors. The BMW will be hers. Now she drives a car that is silver in color. We are currently planning to get the metallic silver F10 but I am looking for other options to choose from.

That is why I was thinking of the Milano Beige Metallic as an option.

I guess the cinnamon interior is out of the question. Now I just want to know what would be a good interior color that would go with the Milano Beige Metallic exterior.

More suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

It looks like the color changes depending on the lighting. It looks more luxious than sporty....as I expected.

How many people here like the color?

I saw the cashmere silver yesterday and ordered a car today. It looks very different on the BMW website than in person. When I went on the builder to see what I wanted to order I chose Cashmere silver. When I saw the picture I thought I had the wrong color. I tried Milano beige and it looked like the car in the lot. I sent my salesman my list to order the car and he called me back and said the car I liked was cashmere silver.
