Modification #12 - BMW Individual Piano Black Trim


...Late last week, the last of my Piano Black pieces arrived from BMW Individual in Germany. The short version of the story is that these pieces were supposed to be installed in Germany for me, but because that would have added to the car's build time, and because my tickets were non refundbale, BMW Individual decided to put carbon leather on my car, and ship my Piano Pieces directly to me.

Well I have to say, the wait was well worth it. The piano black pieces are extraordinary in both fit and finish. And the contrast in these pieces against the more matte, slightly lighter leather interior is stunning. The contrast truly sets the interior off and makes the whole thing come together beautifully.

Why don't I let the pictures do the talking for me
