Isn't that the truth. I tried to get them to change at factory and refused. They make a beautiful car and then someone goes silly with the trim. If they wanted to make it unique, they should have went carbon fiber. Not a fan of the carbon fiber yet way better than the cheap looking Cerium Gray IMO.
On the other hand, I love the cerium grey trim. I have got a sapphire black G30 540i and I requested my local dealer to install the cerium grey parts to be installed before I collected my car.
Since my very opinionated post I have seen them on black and sakhir orange and would say they look pretty good on the those colors. Did nothing for this color of blue.
no worries, we all have our preferences in terms of colors, ur car is nicely done up. very nice!

I have an Azurite Black M550 on the way and I think the cerium gray will complement that color nicely. About the only cosmetic mod I'm considering is swapping out the front reflectors for painted ones...but I'll see how much they bother me once I have the car.
Congrats on your M550i Azurite black build. Can you post pictures of it when you get it eventually? thanks!

I love it, nothing beats a blue and black combination IMO. Some of the stuff you've done to your M550 I plan to do with my 540. Nice job!

By the way, when did they stop offering San Marino blue for the 550? Doesn't seem as though it's available now.
