I second that. Aluminum - it looks more sporty.

You can always change the trim later. Or get it leather covered.

Black/Black/Black with Evergreen trim. Or Kyalami.

If I were buying it, I'd order the aluminum trim.

I'd vote aluminum too - I may even replace my current Z3 console, I like it so much ...

Personally, I haven't been happy with our weather since January - over 80 every day, over 85 most days, heat records broken - yuck. The visitors have walked around with big ol' dumb grins om their faces, but we get enough summer in summer - I don't WANT it to be summer in winter!



And, there's a new Z4 in the Kendall driveway? I wanna see!
Suddenly, the last week, they're everywhere - I saw 2 blues and a red just today, probably 10 since last Thursday.

I live mostly in South Miami, beach place is for weekends/fun.

My vote goes for the wood - it better matches the retro styling of the exterior.

The wood isn't bad - I think the wood is much better with the beige interior than the aluminum.

But for the black interior, I think the aluminum ties in better with it and the aluminum roll hoops.

When I posted the above I was only thinking of the Z3. For the Z4 my vote goes for the aluminum.
