The red is nice, seen it fitted. However... I actually think the aluminium one would be a good contrast between the coral red seats and would set off the hex trim nicely. Plus it looks a little more classy

John: I initially thought Red too, and then I saw the silver. Bling!

NISFAN: LOL! Black-on-black is in already and has to go. It's the first thing I disliked about the interior when I sat in an F30. Looks a bit unattractive and out of place IMO.

Rob: I also like silver most. Yes, ver' classy it is. So for the moment, I'll go silver.

I'll also have to ask my ex. We both love a bit of classy bling. So, it HAS to be silver.

But tomorrow is another day.

Having slept on it for 5 minutes, I might buy both and give the one I don't like as much to my ex. That way, our cars will look a bit different! How's that for a compromise?

Red-on-black = Sporty
Silver-on-black = Classy

What am I?

It has to be the one with the Coral Red accent as the Aluminium finished one is the wrong size for the F30 series:
59.50 inc VAT
Fitting time 15 mins
Will match the upholstry
To be fitted tomorrow

No thanks!

Went to buy handbrake handle with the red accent but the red leather was faulty. They'll order me a new one.

Second one with the same creased red leather. Decided not to buy one. I'll wait a couple of months for a new batch.

Exactly. The parts guy was also a bit 'surprised' with the low quality finish. The handbrake looks great but the Coral Red Leather was totally rippled.

No, it's not the correct part for the F30 it seems.
