Anybody know which one better matches the aluminum trim? Mine doesn't match all that well (too glossy compared to the brushed look of the aluminum trim). It's a little thing, but it's annoying me...

I don't have the Al trim but I would imagine the lighter one would match better

Yeah.... I wanna know who stole mine
I SWORE that mine was shipping first but no... SOMEONE had to order theirs after me and got mine. Now I have to wait for them to come in like everyone else
NOT COOL
See if I help any of you guys again

Whoever gets theirs first has to do the DIY
