That's an interesting point if it's true. Since when were the Aluminum or the Sycamore Anthracite trim deemed plastic pieces? All the advertising materials from BMW describe them as either aluminum or wood. Additionally, from the different pictures and perspectives on this board, the wood from car to car has been described as being different wood grains suggesting it was truly wood and not faux.
