Chrome strip below trunk lid and wheel style 252

i'm another very happy new owner of a 2009 space gray 750Li - as of tonight.
and i'm a new member as of last night. saw haydens incredible car and ED pictures. congratulations. one like it with the matte wood trim was sold through irvine bmw just on the 23rd and i unfortunately missed it. bought mine from nick alexander and was very happy with them, daniel fox and ruben - just great service and attitude. will post pictures later, but wanted to ask the community if anybody has painted that chrome strip under the rear trunk lid and could post some images. it would accentuate the reverse lights, but i'm considering doing it.
what could also lighten up the rear IMO would be some paint or 3M on that lower section around the tail pipes - with its distinct cut line. it's just asking to be painted or 3M'd with some matt black. any thoughts?

oh - another question. anybody would like to swap/sell wheels? i'm looking for style 252 (gray forged alloy) and would trade for style 235 (all silver multi spoke).

Congratulations on your 7! Please post pictures of your Space Gray. I'm seriously considering the new 7 (in all-wheel drive) and Space Gray would be my first choice of colour. Thanks!
