First, you can't buy the OEM piano black trim from BMW unless your car has a VIN that confirms it's Individual.... So unless you're planning to go aftermarket, if you want the real piano black, you need to have an Individual car.
I think trim depends a lot on the overall color combination. And if you're trying to go for classy or sporty.... or both (although both can be tricky to execute well, IMO). So I have a few different options in my head, depending on what I ultimately pick inside and out, and am looking forward to hearing other people's responses....
I am very aware of the individual since I could have ordered mine that way. Doing individual is no more difficult to order than regular ordering other than the wait time is likely a bit longer due to having to get items approved.
