Coming from an E60, the F3x interior certainly gains more style, but I think as we've all heard 100x, the quality is really lacking given the price point. That being said, I don't terribly mind the...

Not surprising, EB is a fairly uncommon color relative to your standard mix of black, white, and silver. As such BMW probably doesn't stock it in high volumes.

Do your BMW a favor and do not put ebay junk on it. OEM or parts from reputable manufacturers such as Dinan, Alpina, etc. are the only things that should be put on a BMW.
