Does Anyone Have Alpine White Trim?

Hi all!

Just saw a post of Alpine White Trim w/ Coral Red leather--- looked stunning! I was wondering how it looks in person versus pictures, quality wise. I'm worried that it might look like cheap plastic or does it look good?

Looking forward to the input/pictures!

There have been several posts on AW trim so you might do a search and PM the owner. I haven't seen it in person either, just pictures. Stunning yes, but for me to contrasty in your face. The best combo for it I can imagine would be AW exterior and black interior on a car with shadowline exterior trim and anthracite headliner.

Looks tacky in my opinion. Definitely prefer my Glacier Aluminum!

I think the grey poplar is the best by far. Its one of the first things people comment on when they get in my car.

I agree with above.

My top 3 for an AW w/ coral is
1. Grey poplar
2. Black gloss/piano
3. Glacier aluminum

All are classy and perfect contrast w/out too much flash.

The color, finish and texture (glossy) kind of remind me of Apple products, specifically the white iPhones.

I've seen it personally in the 1 series, and think it's over the top. You look inside and it's all you see.

Here is a link to my photo thread, I've got a few pics of my interior with the AW trim located a bit down. http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632214

I absolutely love it in person, so fresh and sporty, plus everyone that gets in my car compliments it. I promise you won't regret it if you do go for it, however I cannot speak on the CR/AW only Black/AW.

All I know is that I dislike the grey poplar, and everyone has aluminum so I decided to try to be different, very happy I did.

I have Alpine White Exterior with Coral Interior and Alpine White Trim. Absolutely love it. It does not look cheap or plasticky at all. I created a thread with pics of my car a while back. You can probably find it by searching for threads created by me. PM me if you have any questions.

this is the exact combo I reference in my post above and i agree with you...it is a very specific color combo and I think this is the only way to make it look right.

I got the white trim on mine but with black interior. I was scared about it but I am quite happy with it. I can take more pics if you need.

Thank you all for the comments and pictures I really appreciate it; it's a big help! I might just do the high-gloss black trim so it will blend in with the dash. Not sure how good wood would look with Red leather!

Can you show me a picture? I love Coral (have it now) and Terracotta. Can't make up my mind if I should get Coral again w/ a different colored exterior or change it up and go with the TC.

Would be greatly appreciated!

The white looks terrible, aluminum trim looks much better IMO.

Awesome for you! I got red leather and alpine white trim and I know it's going to be great for me. I don't want wood in my car, and the glacier trim doesn't excite me. To each their own, and yep... mine will be different.
