2016 320i interior trim

I noticed that on the BMWUSA configurator for the 320i, no matter what interior optional trim (fineline,ash,etc) I select that the chrome/aluminum trim strip does not run across the front and rear door panel.
Once I switch over to the 328i, the images show the trim strip running through the front and rear door panels.
So my question are the configurator images correct or does the 320i have chrome/aluminum trim that runs across thee front and rear door panels after all.

Thanks

Try "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start". This usually works for me.

SUCH a minor matter! Why would anyone but you care? Most of us are far more concerned about performance, not very minor trim issues!

Best you head to a dealer and get them to confirm. The other guys replies here are trying to wind you up

Not a cool answer to a perfectly reasonable question.

My wife's 320i has the basic trim, but as far as I can remember, it is in the same places as the wood trim on my 328i. But there is only trim on the pull handles, no extra strip on the door on either. Both of ours are 2014's.

The 320i does not get it. I just looked online at an in stock 2016 320i that has wood trim with the satin chrome and it does not extend to the doors.

The trim extending to the door must be new for the LCI on the 328i and above.

GC had it before the LCI, but not the 328.

Always great to hear from you, Kafka! What's the latest? Keeping your car? Moving to another brand?

C'mon boys, be nice now. No personal attacks, subtle or obvious. This applies to all of you.

I'm picky about interior pieces, colors etc too. What will you do? Will you get a 328 instead?

You are a very cool-headed person, because that was not even an answer to anything.

For 2016, BMW made most of the LCI interior upgrades applicable only for the 328i/340i. The 320i simply gets no door upgraded trims, not even part of any package or option. They are about $80 each, if interested.

If any comfort, the M3 didn't either.

Accent molding front left - perglanz chrom (thinking this must be correct ) 51417393489. Front Right 51417393490
Accent molding rear left - 51427393477 - rear right 51427393478

They also show these clips - 51418144600 saying quantity 4 needed per front door and 2 for rear
and then these clamps - 07149241763 - showing 16 needed per door?!

I'm unsure if what is existing could be used but knowing BMW something will break off when you remove a clamp or clip

I had found everything but this part number 51427393477 on Pelican Parts. So the hunt continues...

Thanks for the info on the part numbers.
I wonder if the existing strip can be removed to be painted to match the silver matte color since my 320i will not have a wood trim interior that calls for the pearl chrome trim color.
Also, I believe that there is a ambient light strip that is hidden in that door trim strip a well.
