The Fine line oak trim is nice but since the AC/Radio console will always come in black I tend to go with black wood trim .

I attached 2 pictures to show the difference between Fine Line Oak and Piano Black just in case you wanted to see how they look.

Please forgive me for intruding as I get excited when I see people order a new car but did you think about going with Vermillion red with Titanium Silver? because that is a killer combo an can be spotted easily?
Not intruding at all! I appreciate the input.

The more I see pictures like you posted, the more I feel confident that the Fine Line Oak just isn't the right choice for me. I do understand what you mean about the Piano Black blending with the black panels of the controls, too. Still, I think I'm leaning toward the Gray Poplar, because it has the right darker tones, but still offers some pattern.

In every BMW I have ever driven, I've had black interior. Getting something different this time, even if it's only as different as dark brown, is a huge step. I just don't have it in me to go for the red leather! Ha.

Thanks again for your input. Much appreciated.
