Does anyone have pics of Saddle Brown with Glacier Aluminum Trim?

I am ordering my 335i M-Sport Package first thing tomorrow morning and I can not decide on the trim. I know I am getting Saddle Brown but not sure how it would look with the aluminum trim (either brushed or glacier). I am only able to find pictues of Saddle brown with the dark wood trim, but not a big fan of wood. Does anyone have pictures or can point me in the right direction for them, looking to see Saddle Brown pics with either brushed or glacier aluminum trim. Any help is highly appreciated. You can also email me them to izelfon@gmail.com

Thank you very much,
Igor

yeah, that or you can go make your own car at BMWUSA.com and see how it will look there. Although it will be computerized it gives you a good idea.

I wouldn't suggest that all. He is better off going to the dealer...the pics on the website are very deceiving...specially with saddle brown.

Glacier trim has a strange diagonal cross pattern on it. I didn't really like it on the car I saw at the dealer. Only possible advantage I can see is the glacier trim may not show scratches as much as the brushed aluminium. Personally I ordered the Saddle brown with brushed aluminium with my M-sport.

My first preference was to get the anthracite maple wood trim, but is only available if you choose individual paint or other interiors (Maybe not available in the US). Dark Burl is also an option, but I think it looks a bit conservative. You really need to go to the dealer to check the sample colours. The online config program isn't good enough for decisions that involve your $$.

Saddle/ brushed aluminium will look look something like this:

But it is better to check the actual colour samples - Don't rely on the pictures!

Thank you very much everyone, I really appreciate the feedback. I will be going to the dealership tonight to place my order and review the colors/trims there in person but I think I am settled on Glacier Aluminum with Saddle Brown. Will upload picks in about 5 weeks when the car arrives. Thanks
