Pic request: The "other" aluminum trim

Here in the U.S., we've had Glacier Silver Aluminum trim since the launch of the 1-er coupe. Other markets have an additional trim, code "4B3."

In the UK: Brushed Aluminium interior trim with accent line
In Australia: Aluminium interior trim with accentuated patterning
In S. Africa: Aluminium accentuated patterning

Would anybody be willing to post some photos of this exotic trim?

Thanks!

Hey Creepy C.

Thanks for the photos!

Would you really prefer black plastic? Why?

Yeah, now I'm confused. The trim in oldman's photos looks like Glacier (4MG) to me and is certainly different from what creepy coupe has. The BMW Australia site had both aluminum trims in their configurator.

The brushed aluminum looks great. Not sure I like the patterned , but it's interesting (and this stuff is all just opinion anyway).

How about some not so close-up pics of the patterned so we can get a better view?
