Mocha Nappa Leather Interior

Taken with an iPad at my local BMW dealer. Not great pics, but a fanastic new interior color. Please go see it in person, it's classic looking!

Mocha looks like an old briefcase of mine and a current fine leather wallet. Think belting or cordovan leather- the highest quality leather.

Cohiba Brown isn't a 2014 option for 5 Series in US

IMO, way better than the cinnamon interior option for pre-LCI.

Can't believe they discontinued black nappa.

Thanks for great pics. I like the color a lot, but I personally can't stand Nappa leathers. To me it's too smooth, feels heavily processed, shiny, and has somewhat oily look. Merino is completely different on the other hand.

I finally saw Mocha in person today. It was just okay - IMO. I was hoping it would be a rich chocolate brown like the press photos, but it is more like the washed out pictures you see online. I compared it to a Gran Coupe with Cinnamon on the lot. The Cinnamon was a much richer/deeper color. Overall, Mocha reminded me of a cup of coffee diluted with milk. It's not a terrible color, but not for me. I would highly recommended seeing it in person before ordering.

Merino is only available for 2014 in 535's and 550's and for a $2500 add on. Mocha Nappa is a no cost add on with a "Line". People need to see it- small percentage won't like it.

Personal preference- I'm not a huge fan of Ciinnamon Dakota leather. Mocha Nappa leather is softer and darker than CDL. MDL is close to Mojave which is available in X3/X5.

Luxury seat option eliminates stitching across mid back area in front seats. Luxury Seats come with perforations in the leather.

For MY2014, the perforated seats are only in the front, so the rear seats have the stitching.

But you still get that stitching across the back seats, and no perforations in the back seats. It doesn't look as odd as I thought it would. I've got "cocoa" full leather in my Boxster, and Mocha is definitely a lot lighter in color.

I am happy I got it though. And the leather itself was a free upgrade from "pleather" for my 528-xdrive since I got M-sport and didn't pay $2600 for CA. I thought for sure I'd get charged for leather, then get the upgrade to nappa, but that didn't happen.

Go to your local dealer if you want to see the exact colors. Even the professionally done BMW brochures are way off at times.

If you like a brown interior you'll probably like this one. Saddle, then came Cinnamon and now we have Mocha. All nice interior colors IMHO.

Picked up my new Space Gray/Mocha Nappa/Anthracite Trim ride today.

A Smilie type and number for each week I waited:

:happy anim:


arty 0030:



I have pics from my iPhone, but won't post them here.

I'll take pics with a good camera of mine and post them in the near future. The entire car has 3 basic colors that compliment each other extremely well: Gray, Black and Brown with some aluminum. The M Sport Line comes with a black headliner, black carpet and black dashboard. BMW calls the headliner Anthracite, but it's black. Anthracite trim actually has browns, grays and black in it- why does the BMW Marketing Department confuse people like this? There's some aluminum trim, but not much in the dashboard/armrest and the new style awesome steering wheel- believe it's from the 6 Series. The wheels are beautiful alloy and happy that the black tires are made by Continental.

Trying to stay with the topic of the this thread: colors and how they match up with the new Mocha Nappa Leather interior.

Mocha has some burgundy in it which rich brown colors many times have. Think "cordovan" leather- more the type of leather, than the color. It looks like an old briefcase of mine and a current wallet. Cordovan leather is made from the butt of a horse- it's the most durable and arguably the highest quality leather that one may buy. It looks like cordovan leather, it obviously is not.

Now that the 2014 5's are arriving, do yourself a favor and go check it out in person. I'm a lousy photographer and even the professionally done BMW pics that I and others posted won't do this handsome color justice. It's difficult to capture exact hues and textures on the Internet even if the pics are well done.

Have you seen a caricature of myself doing the happy dance lately?
