- it's generally accepted the M3 trim will be the same as used in M5. There's no proof to suggest otherwise, and wouldn't make sense that M3 would get _better_ trim than M5.
- The trim starts to flake and pit after a very short time, a few weeks to a few months. Some people are on their 3rd set of replacements... thats 4 sets including the original. Mostly the gear knob and surounding area.
- even when new, some people have noticed the trim doesn't really look as good close up, as it does in pictures... myself included.
Right now, no dealer in Canada can tell me for certain which trim will be offered to Canada. If it's offered, I'll take the gloss black. If not, I'll take the AL trim, and if it gives me problems, I'll upgrade it to Birch Anthracite through BMW Parts dept.
