Got the frozen bronze; with black interior for a sportier look. Bronze looks great with the black. Also got 20" wheel option.
Wish they had an individual option with black interior. Love everything except gray cloth headliner.

If you get a chance post some pictures, would love to see some frozen bronze pictures while I wait for mine.

You can order the individual headliner in anthracite which is black if you don't like they grey headliner.

Was wanting an alcantara headliner rather than cloth. Would have gladly paid for it. Would have even taken an individual option but there are no all black interior options. The all black non-individual Napa leather is actually very fantastic with the leather dashboard option.... if only I didn't have to look up and see cloth rather alcantara.

M Sport will give you the anthracite alcantara without going Individual and therefore allowing you to get the black. The headliner makes a huge difference in the feel if the interior. Like the Nappa dash, contrast stitching, and ceramic controls, the alcantara makes the 6er's interior superior to 98% of cars below $200k.

Southern's correct. It does make a difference to the interior ambiance and acoustics. The option code is 776. I had to specifically ask them to include it and in my country, they do offer it even without ordering the other BMW Individual options. No harm trying if your order is not yet finalized.

Thanks. I already have the car. Unfortunately in the US you cant order it separately; I asked the sales manager if they could special order it that way and he stated it was not possible.

That's a shame but no biggie. There are plenty of other unique features of the 6GC that sets it miles apart from other cars out there.

Thanks I just realized I could have done it through the M package. But I would not have been able to get the 356 wheels option, which look truly fantastic with the car. I could have gotten the 356 wheels as an accessory and used the M package wheels for winter tires. But that would have been a 10K tab to get the headliner.
But I completely agree with you that the headliner puts the interior in a different class. If I could do it over again I might bite the bullet and do it, especially since I was able to get the $3500 current rebate when the car arrived, but which was not available when I ordered.

My other favorite choice was the Cintrin Black with the canyon brown interior (as the cintrin has the warm tones) and style 356 wheels in the bicolor as an accessory. I saw these wheels in the showroom and they are stunning. But there were no good pictures of the canyon brown anywhere either.

Have some pics? I don't recall seeing any pics of your car. Sounds like a beautiful car.

Just bumped a few old threads from the early F12/13 days that might be helpful in answering some of the questions surfacing lately. Can't believe I've had my car for 10 months now. Time flies when you're burning rubber and hydrocarbons in a 6er
