Cup Holder Delete Panel

Hi, what color cupholder delete panel should I get? I'd like it to match the color of the black plastic trim and radio. Part number is 51168256292.

I did not even know that was an option. Are you sure that is for replacing the cup holder? It looks like it is for covering the opening created if you don't have the options panel (DSC, seat heaters, PDC)

You have the correct part number, Black = SCHWARZ
Check out RealOEM.com:
06 Decorative strip, instrument panel SCHWARZ 1 09/1998 51168256292 $24.37
06 Decorative strip, instrument panel GRAU 1 09/1998 51168256293 $24.87
06 Decorative strip, instrument panel SANDBEIGE 1 09/1998 51168256294 $24.37
I'm afraid the black will be glossy as I'd seen on other peoples' cars. Asking from people that already have them.

Ordered in gray. If it looks bad glossy I'll just plastidip it black. Going to cut a USB hole in it though for my Dynavin N6.
