Interior trim threads??

I was wondering if we could start an interior trim thread. Almost all the photos are carbon leather or aluminum. Very few titanium or anthracite examples.

Would really help for all of us who are ordering the car.

Thank you.

I'm, sorry. The problem is that there is no anthracite examples. The BMW configurator is really too "artificial". Anthracite looks like grey poplar (on the normal 3 series).

A glossy material maybe would look good, but it's difficult to choose without at least photos.

Thank you so much. Seems to be brownish. Is this right?
I like the glossy look, but I don't want a brown trim!

I guess I will order it with carbon leather or titanium. It's a shame that they don't make a real carbon trim. Would look so nice....

Thank you again.

Yes, a dark brown trim.

In Germany there's a real CF trim available as (dealer installed) extra equipment, costs about 1,200 . This may be available in the U.S. also!?

Thank you south.. that could be a real deal.

So they just un-install the factory one and install the new one?

Thanks for this information South as it's on of the many things that I like about my S5's interior, but why is it so expensive compared to what Audi charge. It cost my 250 (360) for the privilege of having it, why would BMW see fit to change three times as much.
