What is "highlight trim finishers pearl gloss chrome"

Hi all,

I noticed on bmwconfig on the '12 335i that there's a (free) option called "highlight trim finishers pearl gloss chrome". Does anyone know what that is? It sounds like a bad idea to get if I'm going metallic gray and black dakota leather. (no line or line designation)

These are the accents in the car like the line running along the dash. Here are some pictures form the BMW online configuration tool showing the Pearl Interior Colors. Hope that helps.

I see. So if I don't get that, my trim would be black?

I was actually looking through the ordering guide a bit more and only see the pearl highlights as being an option on the Luxury and Modern lines. You may want to take a run through BMWUSA's online tool to see your options and then verify it with your dealer. Here is a link to the BMW configuration for the 335i with no line designation:

Tan steering wheel + tan background to gauges = someone needs to get fired.

That pinkish trim is an abomination, in my eyes. Here's the textured wood trim, very classy.



Forgot to mention: the "highlight trim finishers pearl gloss chrome" is the chrome trim below the air conditioning vents.

I think the textured wood reminds me of an old 1980s console TV. Maybe it will look better in person. Personally I am not feeling the modern line at all. Just can't get over the oyster wheel and dash.

What would the dash look like (335, if it matters) if I just ordered the base line? Same color as the leather seats? Default trim is wood.

Isn't the "trim" the nasty pink stuff in the above photos and "highlight trim" is the metal strip?

The textured wood looks just as bad in person. I know some people do like it and I thought I might too. However, when I saw it in person, I thought it was hideous, it really cheapens the car.

How about the red in the Sport Line? IMO it looks like a kiddy car. Maybe BMW should go after the teen age purchasers and forget the rest of us.
cheers

I really like the matte finish on the wood trim but I think the textured part is overkill and makes it look like it's trying too hard.

In person, I actually really liked the wood trim texture. Wasn't sure I would like it but I do.

Conflicting finish spec?

Folks,

My order has made it into production, and I am confused by the Sport Line package that is shown on the spec (see below). I did order the coral red matte finish and the black high-gloss finish. I did not order the pearl gloss chrome, and I don't understand how it applies, given the other two finishes. Any ideas?

Sport Line
Sport seats
Anthracite headliner
Door mirror caps in black
Highlight trim finishers Coral Red matte
Highlight trim finishers Black high-gloss
Highlight trim finishers pearl gloss chrome
M steering wheel

Thanks!

My order still says all three and it's built and on the boat. I know what I ordered, but of the three, we'll have to see what I get.
