I was wrong about the Chrome on Silver grill. That was from when I was looking at X3. The BMW build to order for 2016 shows only chrome on black for the GT.

But wait, there's more.

In addition to activating the RBS by using high shift points, it's a handy way to disable the ASS without craning your neck to see the dash indicator. Just leave ASS...
