In several countries (including Germany) the 1M silver trim ("Chrome Line") was a standard feature for the 1M. The gloss black trim ("Hochglanz Shadow Line") was optional (option 760). Quite a hassle to be retrofitted, because might be glued to the rear window (which risks to be inevitably broken during the retrofit process).

According to my purchase order the option was €103.31 + 21% VAT = €125.00 in 2011. According to the German specs list it was €100.84 + taxes = €120.00 in 2011 ("BMW Individual Hochglanz Shadow Line: hochglänzende schwarze Ausstattungsumfänge").

Both are nice. The vast majority on this forum prefers the "Shadow Line" (more sporty look) over the "Chrome Line" (more elegant look). But of course, that's just a matter of personal taste.
