Between the Gunmetal Brushed Aluminum and Standard Brushed Aluminum which color matches the silver trim around the start button?

Gunmetal Grey would be the closest match I believe.

Just wanted to clarify that I assume the standard brushed aluminum set matches the brushed aluminum trim?

Hmmm, I'm thinking the brushed black might be the most OEM looking (best blending) which is what I want.

Any way to get some pics, once you guys have it set on selling and all, of all those installed and compared to BMW fake CF trim or whatever it's called, and the other Trim's available?

I have that Cf cloth trim and am leaning towards the Brushed Black... or Gunmetal Gray.

Send a message via AIM to Tom@SonicMS
We'll take some clear sharp pictures this afternoon comparing the different finishes.
Those pieces are actually prototype unit that we used to test the different finish, the shape and angle is different on production pieces (posted on page1).

We'll be ready to ship this friday

this is perfect, I hate it when I'm turning around a slow corner and I'm trying to find the paddle to change up before unwinding the wheel!

I just wanted to ask, does the nickel plated one had a bronze sort of tinge to it, or is it more of a chrome silver finish?

What is the possibility of producing these from CF in the future?

The nickel plated version is a very shiny, almost chrome finish but has a very slight bronze hue to it as shown in the pictures.

We have no plans to release a CF one in the future due to high cost, but if demand is high enough - we might produce a limited batch.

The finalized batches will have the +/- markings, as stated previously the pictures above are of pre-production prototypes which do not have the markings.
