Does anyone have ivory white leather?

Hows it going, anyone have pics of the leather by any chance. Still trying to decide between it and oyster. Also should I go with dark wood or bamboo? Thanks.

It takes a special person to pull off white leather. Well, that or a show on the Bravo network (at least if you are a guy in your 30's). I've actually seen it in a few convertibles where it looked really good with the right paint color. I embrace the "Sport" part of SAV too much. Well, that and the Cherry Slurpees take the gamble to a new level.

Dark wood all the way.

Ye I hear that lol, always go with black leather since I get white cars, this time I went for sapphire black so decided to go for a white interior. Just wish I can make my mind up about ivory white or oyster.

I've got the Oyster interior on my Black Sapphire X6 50i.

The Oyster looks amazing and it's a very nice contrast with the black carpets and the rear of the front seats in black, as well as the doors also in black.

I have found that the Oyster leather stays very clean and I've had no issues with it so far.

I have the oyster on my black sapphire 5.0i and after a year it still looks just as good as new (I'm a little rough on my car - resting golf clubs, work stuff etc on the seats and I've done 30k in the year). I agree with polar993, it's a great contrast. I had the same combination on my 2011 335i convertible and will likely stick with it in 2015 hopefully on the new x6.

I opted for the Oyster leather on my X6, but I am still waiting for delivery.

Just be wary if you wear jeans a lot. The denim dyes will rub off on the leather. If you keep on top of it using a cleaner (Lexol leather cleaner works well) the stains won't be permanent, but that means cleaning it at least once every 2 months at a minimum - monthly to be safe. Just the areas where the denim will rub against the seats.

If you normally wear pants or shorts you shouldn't have any problems.
