Can you ID this interior trim?

Picked up this 98 AW white 528 couple of months ago. Never seen this trim before. It is stock, but I haven't seen it before, I am looking for the name of this trim. Any clues? Thanks

Thanks. Very helpful. When I first saw the car, I expected wood. Haven't seen this trim before, but it really grew on me and I like it with the black.

Cheers

Yeah, I removed the wood and replaced all of it with new cubic trim (bmw used to, but no longer calls it "technical graphite"). I love it.

It suits the sport models, I think.

I am still undecided on mine. seems to be popular in the white 528's. difference is I have tan leather interior so the black kinda looks out of place.

Here are a few pictures of it installed in my car...

Seems odd posting to a thread that was last updated in 2008, but I think that we should start a sub forum for owners with this trim. I have it on my 528 and it wasn't until today that I found out what it was. Thank you for voicing the question originally!
