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.

"Hochglanz Shadow Line" (High Gloss Shadow Line) (S760A)
- roof frame strip, left | Glanzschwarz | part# 51132996901 ($266.90)

- 22 clips | part# 51767162587 ($1.00)
