In the early years of 8er production, there were a large variety of upholstery colors/fabrics to choose from BMW's official catalog.  By the 1993-94 model years, BMW re-evaluated the upholstery catalog for the 8er and promptly removed underperforming colors.

This particular upholstery color was rarely seen in the 8 Series and was offered as a standard interior option from September 1989 through August 1993. 

The pictures provided are from Luis Moreno's 1991 850i in Brilliant Red (code 308).


Color images were derived from multiple sources, including BMW AG, aftermarket upholstery color charts, and owner vehicles.  Republishing content is expressly prohibited.
