It scratches. Badly.
I treat my cars with kid gloves and like to think I'm careful when cleaning. The F31 on loan to me until I get my F30 is a Sport with the 'Black trim, high-gloss' interior option - across the dash and along the top of the transmission tunnel around the iDrive controller. I've done nothing to it other than wipe with a damp micro-fibre or vac'd with a soft brush but when the light hits it it's covered in fine scratches.
Thank goodness I went for brushed aluminium.
I wasn't so fortunate...I think the piano black looks the best but boy does it scratch! I am going to try and get the fine scratches out and protect it and see how it fairs - otherwise it will remained scratched!!
