Here is a real life pic of the aluminum trim on black interior in my X3...

As I have mentioned several times in other threads, this combination looks fantastic, and the aluminum is a real brushed aluminum texture, not some plastic that is painted in some silver or some aluminum pattern "sticker" that is slapped on the dash. It was changed from the aluminum trim used before the 2007 model, which used to have these circular patterns in the aluminum that made it look like some funky wallpaper or Ikea design.

anyways, on black leather or leatherette (i prefer the leatherette by the way because of my dogs and how durable it is), the aluminum is a perfect combo, and it doesn't look so out of place or too flashy. to each his own in terms of taste, but I think it looks better than the "fake" wood trims...

oh, and my car took about 7 weeks to redeliver after I did my ED.... customs took a bit of time
