Ugly Red Stripe on Sport Line

I'm thinking of replacing my 2011 535i with a 2013 328i. I love the sport seats but hate that red stripe/highlight that goes around the interior. Any suggestions or aftermarket solutions short of duct tape or using a black sharpie?
Thanks,
Z

The red accents are quite extensive...even the key fob is decorated. I looked at a Sport Line car (Crevier) and immediately decided that I couldn't live with the interior.

I think you can order it with the black high-gloss trim with the aluminium trim instead of the red accent finisher.

You may want to post in the F30 forum,

Are you talking about the red accents or the red stitching on the leather. I have a 2014 328i Sport Line and love the red stitching. I don't think I've heard anyone else complain about it. The red trim on the dash is another story. I didn't care for that and opted for black accent trim instead the red.

Agree...wrong forum!

AZNMpower32 is correct. In 2013 you could get the highlight finisher in red, black or chrome. Simply look for one that doesn't have the red trim and you'll be set.
