    About to buy a second hand X5 but only concern is cream interior. Have kids and they are young and messy of course.
    It's cream leather and the floors have cream carpet as well. Just wondering if anyone in similar situation and how do you keep the interior clean?

    Sorry if wrong place to post this.

    I'd not worry about the seats, the leather will easily wipe down any mess, the carpet though is another story. You could get black BMW mats which will keep the visibility of dirt away. Some people will get 2 sets of mats, a cream set for summer and a black set for winter. Either way whatever dirt your kids are putting on your current car is just not as visible but is still there.

    Oh I know it is but it is all black interior so not as noticeable :p
    We live in countryside and do walks out fields etc...muddy boots might be a disaster

    I had one with a white leather interior. As the other poster said, its not a huge deal to keep it clean. However, when you look very closely at the perfoations in the leather they can get a bit dirty over time. you can still clean then. I used son-of-a-gun but it requires regular cleaning and some effort.

    Have black again now in the current motor and no issues

    My one had a black floor so no issues.

    Oh had a Tuscon with cream leather. Now, materials might not be as good as the bmw, but after 2 years with not much hard use, 2 old teenagers plus ourselves, and with a second car for most football pick ups etc, it was beginning to look grubby around some edges.

    I'd say life is too short to be worrying about it, if it's going to annoy you of it gets dirty, get a black one!

    I wonder if any option for long mats you could use in the back seats etc?

    Assume that's the BMW oyster interior and TBH as much as i love it (really lifts interior, nice and bright) I would avoid with small kids.

    Yes of course you can keep clean but i think it will break your heart.

    I have OCD and just couldn't do it. My wife got black interior on her BMW recently as kids in it loads and my next one I'll get oyster but kids older then and not really in my car much.

    If it has the cream carpets - don't bother I work in the trade and they are an absolute pig to clean and keep clean kids or no kids. Try get the cream seats with black carpet
