The aluminum has a soft brushed finish - no reflections at all.

Deep Sea Blue. It's a really dynamic color in different levels of light.

To the brushed and glacier aluminum owners, do you find that either of these scratch easily?

Just painted the front grills by the fog lights black over the weekend. I love the one tone look much better.

Here are some pix from my Sept 6th ED and our track day at the Ring. Very happy with the Saddle Brown and Piano Black trim. It's like sitting in butterscotch and chocolate.

BTW - my Msport was delivered with non-Msport rims (style 193M); this is currently being fixed by BMW NA upon redelivery. Long story.... Argh!

Looking forward to getting this car in mid-Oct and getting it prepped for some "fun" New England winters.

My interior is the Saddle Leather- I love it. I bought the car without seeing the saddle in person, so I was a little nervous until I saw it- now I think it is one of the best things about the car!
