I'm getting an Imola red 330i zhp with black leather and can't decide on silver cube or black cube trim. What should I get?

If it's Imola on black, I'd go with the Black Cube Trim. Since I got black on black I went with the Silver Cube Trim just to add a little contrast. Both trims on the ZHP look really good, but I would definitely get black with the Imola. Either way you're getting one heck of a nice car!!

I currently have a bright red 318ti Sport with black interior and anthracite headliner. I found this set up too dull/monochrome so I ordered my ZHP with silver cube trim.

We've done both: a co-worker has a ZHP with black trim, and we just received one with silver trim. I've seen them both practically back to back, and they are both equal in my eyes. I'd get the silver cube now that I've seen it, just to add some contrast as others have said. It's all up to you, though. Neither one is worse than the other.

Neither...

Personally I dont like either cubeish trims. My ZHP is silvergrey/black and came with black cube. My very first mod was to sell it and replace it with the stock mattchrome/aluminum/titanium trim (the net of which nicely funded my second mod - an M3 stress bar).

I ordered silver grey with the standard interior. I picked silver cube. I saw the alcantara interior and black dash board with black cube and it was not very noticeable, so I went with silver cube.

I'd replace either of those trims w/ high-gloss black.

When I had to make that decision, the silver cube would be the logical choice with my mystic blue and black leather, but it just reminded me too much of an early 80's Pontiac Firebird. Went with the black cube and don't regret it. I've got comments from people as they run their fingers over it that they like it.

The silver contrasts best with the black. The interior already has enough black in it.
