Cloth with moonroof is a really strange combination that's going to turn people off in the future. Either get a slicktop, or get leather.

yeah that was what I was hinting at. After buying multiple used M3's I agree but wasn't sure if he was thinking that far ahead or cares.

I'd probably go with option 2.

And I'd probably order a sunroof. Even though I have not missed having one even once on the 1M. Yeah, I know. I don't really get it either.

Leather doesn't do anything for me, so I'd choose a high-quality cloth every time.

Also, you cannot get the brown color as extended leather. if extended, it will have to be black.

Of course, there is option 4) you can get full leather in black, pay another $1k+ and get it all with Sakhir orange contrast stitching.
I like Mineral Gray the best on M3s.
Sakhir is like Yas Marina, visually impressive, but not something i'd want to live with every day.

The individual colors are great, Tanzanite or Azurite would be worth the $1950 to me.

Looking at the interior options, Cohiba is sharp, but I'd do the Cloth Leather option and pocket the $3500.
