Funny, when I see that photo I am not that crazy about the wood either, I think it looks much better in person than in the photo. The floor mats are stock BMW.

In my opinion the aluminum trim makes the interior look sporty, especially with the Coral Red Interior. When on the other hand the wood trim makes the car look more classy and yeah. I don't know its simply a opinion and it is totally up to each and every person.

Wanna trade? iDrive or no iDrive? I wonder how hard it is to remove the trim?

BTW, I used to live in Montreal for 7 years in the 90's. One of the best cities in North America.

It's too much, you should just replace the BMW pieces and not add to it. Makes it look too busy.

Oooops. Didn't expect so many possibilities to trade! Sorry for folks I didn't respond fast enough.

I will get the car Thursday... it has 2600 miles. Believe it or not, E90 w/wood trim are rather rare in Canada. They typically comes with aluminium. Actually I went to an used cars lot which advertised an American 325i 2006 with wood to see it in person to make sure I don't do a mistake, but... gone. More to come.
