Tobacco Leather

After my '03 4.4 was just totaled....last week I ordered the 4.8 in Alpine White with Tobacco leather. After seeing a bunch of pictures online,it looks to be a sea of brown and now Im now a bit uneasy with my choice. I tried to change the interior to black but the dealer said it's too late b/c its due for delivery the second week of April.

What are people's thoughts on the Tobacco Interior...is it as brown as it looks in photos? Any tips on maybe trying to get it changed?

It's definitely darker than it looks in the pictures. You should check to see if your dealer has an X5 or X3 on his lot with tobacco leather and see for yourself. I love it...

Tobacco is very nice. It will be a challenge for the dealer to sell as it is not as popular as black or beige. Still, it's your car, so if you don't want it, don't be afraid to change it--just realize that the dealer would be within his rights to keep the deposit (but they usually don't)

If you have good relation with dealer and you are not in rush, they can rebuild the car and sell the 1st one to some one else. I have done that in past.

I am of mixed feelings about the Tobacco. But one thing I can say, it is a rather unusual/complex color, with a slight touch of red in it, and the picture/photos cannot and do not replicate it well at all -- you won't know if you like it until you see it in real Life.

I have the Tobacco Nappa leather interior on my new 08 x5. I love it. Looks like chocolate. I've received a number of compliments. Go to your dealer's lot. I'm sure you'll find that color on another car. In the past I've had the beige interior and also the grey, this is by far my favorite.

i hope the interior looks like the pics from the BMW website (the dark brown as it looks). the photos that people take of actual X5's look lighter.

I've attached a picture. Note: this is Nappa leather, the other option is Nevada leather which may look a little different.
