CF vs Aluminium Shadow vs Titanium Shadow w/ Black Leather

Gents,

Which one should I get with Black Leather... does Titanium Shadow have much of a contrast? I don't mind Aluminium but thought that maybe it was a little too bright.

cheers,
Zender

The most popular trim I believe is the Carbon Leather Trim.

BUT I choose otherwise since I happily went for Titanium Shadow Trim. Staring at the Carbon leather trim gives me a headache. The aluminum trim is too bright. The other "wood" trims are for OLD folks. Therefore Titanium shadow trim looks the most masculine, sporty, and the best to me.

I think the Aluminum trim on black provides the most contrast. Looks really good too. I like the titanium, but I really feel like there's zero contrast.

Like Nawaaz said, carbon is the most popular...but I found it annoying. Here's a thread that's ok at showing how it looks. I'll try and take some good pictures this evening if you want.

Nice.

I have CF and love it - but I wouldn't have minded actual CF as an option.
