Tan Interior On A Chamonix

somewhat off topic... I have a tan interior in a turkis...I think they were black from the factory.   Tan is the coolest color, literally.  Black and the Navy suck in heat.

 

My only issue with tan is matching it.  Rear parcel shelf and the tan B pillars have been a bear (had to go half black as I could not find a long enough matching tan piece).  I have looked all over the place for matching tan and have had no luck.  Aardvark, World Upholstery and a few other places have sent samples and none are close.

So, none of my tan matches.  But I love the color anyway...

Have you checked on whether BMW still sells the vinyl? My own experience with BMW-supplied vinyl is limited to navy blue (a.k.a., marine blue) and might have been 15 years ago, but it was a perfect match. On the other hand, and echoing your experience, I find the World Upholstery tan seat covers scream "replacement" as they just don't have the right tonality.

So I misspoke when I said tan.  What I am considering is the factory color which I think is called "Saddle" and apparently over the years it was offered in a couple shades.  I pulled the info below from another post.   

 

1. 66-early 68 1600s used a chocolate brown vinyl--not sure if it was used on even the early 2002s...

2. 68-sometime in late 71 early 72 US 2002s used a mottled tan/brown vinyl. 

3. late 71/early 72-end of 73 production--a lighter, more caramel colored tan, in a single shade. 

 

What I am looking for are pictures of a Chamonix with a Saddle interior.  It would be a complete interior color change as the car currently has the stock blue.
