Hmm I see, well that's confusing then. Maybe it's not actually wood but I'm sure the 5 price list had it as fine wood, will check later.

Regardless of the comments I decided to get it anyways. I'll know in a couple of months if it's the worst euro 1K I ever spent.

My friend in Australia has an individual e93 with the piano and he says he hasn't scratched it and he hasn't been careful at all - I'll let you know when it comes.

The e92 at my dealer has the high gloss plastic and it is scratched in the showroom.

Enjoy the full electric seats, the backrest tilts forward by hand as with the non-electric seats. Only the sliding forward is electric and I am told it is slow. In Scotland, getting people in the back when it is raining, you want it to be quick - which it is if manual. Hope your weather is better in Poland

I hesitated over the sports seats and got the keyless entry. I slightly regret not getting the sports seats but the keyless entry is fun!

Go for it. It looks great whatever it is made of.

The individual piono black is definetly no plastic. I knock always on wood and I know the difference from the non individual E46 piano black option and this was plastic.

Hi Mickym, haven't heard from you in a while. Welcome back! How's the car going? Great choice of colour by the way!!!

Hi BC4J, I am sporadically writing here and there, more reading and driving. I remember when you introduced your car and you know that I share your taste.
I do not regret the combo - no scratches, leather quality also after 18 months still fantastic.

Meanwhile I got all my problems with my panorama roof and all rattles fixed.
Driving is still great - heating could be stronger and since my last software update I have sometimes a software crash when I switch the park heating on.

I hope you enjoy your great combo with your unique Diesel engine as well.

Greets Mic

Not sure is the answer. From what I've heard the only Individual package for the US is on the 7-series. This thread may help - http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=110443. Worth a call to BMW USA to clarify.
