About to place an order!!! Monte Carlo Blue/Orange Interior or Black?

I'm about to place an order anytime now, but I can't decide on the interior!!! I really want the orange interior, but seems like the blue/orange combo is very unpopular. There are no cars with that combo and I have to order it. What do you guys think about the blue/orange combo?

I think it's too Superman-ish. I would not get it myself. But if you really want it, then you should get it. Good luck!

def don't do the superman. but people do it and love it. i see it as an absolute disaster and cheesey looking!

Every other exterior looks good on the Sakhir Orange interior, black, grey, white, sakhir orange even, but NOT blue!

It would def be different and rare, but if you like it that's what matters (and I suppose if the second buyer has a calling for it

Have you thought of doing deviated stitching on the black leather (in blue to match exterior)? Something I am looking into.

Personally I love that color combo. I ordered my M6 in San Marino on Sakir. The combo gets a lot of attention.

I attached a Pic of a Monte Carlo on Sakir car my dealer had as well.

Wow, thanks! I've been looking all over for pictures since there aren't alot. Your picture probably sealed the deal for me. I'm placing the order tomorrow! XD

Someone on another forum just took delivery of an mcb m5 with Sakhir interior. Here is the video and some pics. One of the shots is a can of red bull with the car in the background, both have the same color scheme lol.

Here is a great photo set which should give you a good idea, even though the exterior is a frozen color.

I just picked up mine with Silverstone Grey inside... butI have to say that the Orange looks awesome! Listen if you like it to be aggressive go for Orange if you want more classy go for Silverstone Grey.... but Black ??? That's laim IMO

I ordered mine with black interior, because dealer had it on order & delivery would be quicker. black is not the best color for interior, but I can live with it.

orange is too much for me. M5 is supposed to be subtle. just a matter of personal taste.

Now I think frozen mcb with sakhir interior is different, I like the dull blue with the bright interior better than the reg mcb with clear coat look

The frozen tones down the blue and takes away the boldness I was speaking about and allows for that contrast.

Just my opinion

I have a MCB with Sakhir Orange interior, took me some time to warm up to that combo, but it does add a touch of "brightness" to the interior, and its a great talking point for people taking a ride in the car too.....
