Glacier Silver Aluminum Trim or regular Aluminum Trim?

I just ordered the 335i and I don't know if I should call and change to Glacier?

havent seen it in person but i like the scale look to the glacier. the brushed aluminum looks nice with blk interior and sometimes with red. i originally ordered my car with red/brushed alum, i ended up with red/burl. wasnt that excited but when i picked it up didnt look half bad.

Definitely Glacier. That's what I ordered. But keep in mind this is only a M-Sport trim. It is not available if you don't order the M-Sport package.

And no, it's not blueish.

no dude red and dark burl lol. my car had the aluminum and sport package with navi. the one i have now (red and burl) has sport, prem, cold weather, active steering(no longer available on 328i's), and navi for the same amount a month. what would you have done? the kid actually gave up his deposit on the car and bought a mini cooper. i was tired of waiting for my car so grabbed this one with more options.

Glacier looks more interesting and is more durable.
No Contest for me.

I sat in a 135i with Glacier and it seemed pretty cheap and tacky. I don't mean to sound like your typical bmw arrogant ass, and anyone who knows me on this site will tell you thats not the case, but really, that trim was really low rent in sight and feel.

If you want the scale look, you're probably better off getting someone using the good vinyls to wrap it in silver or titanium cf

^^true, but its also cheap and tacky to have your real almn trim all scratch up and dent

I'm going to try complaining to the service ppl about my trims and see if they'll replace them
