The blue would've been cool but I will just live with the clean aluminum look.

I've seen some do it, but I don't think the colored finishers look good with the wood. Two different looks that look odd together, classic wood and aluminum (silver)/ sporty aluminum hexagon and colored

I ordered the EBII finisher with aluminum hexagon to break up all the black (black leather interior, black paint), and because I think it compliments the aluminum and the plastics (dash) better than the high gloss.

I think the gloss black with aluminum accent strip looks good and classy. I personally think the blue would look out of place unless you have a blue car or if they offered blue stitching on the interior leather (still surprised that wasn't included with the MSport). And I agree with the above that colored strips don't look great with wood trim.

On a side note, how is the piano black trim as far as fingerprints and durability? Does it scratch easily?

Aluminum is the accent color in your case

I'm going to get the blue stripe on my black/black car. I think it is more interesting to look at vs. the piano black option. I understand piano black shows scratches/marks/etc very easily.

I don't think the blue finisher comes with the non metallic trims which would probably be why it's not there.

I find it shows the dust and if you do get fingerprints on then it is noticeable but a quick wipe with a cloth and it brings up the glossy shine again. It still looks amazing though and gives the car a very classy looking interior

That was the M Sport key ring I had as a freebie from the dealership I bought the car from. Apparently they normally hand out bouquets of flowers so I reckon I dodged a bullet there
