I have to agree somewhat with the OP. I was recently in BMW of Manhattan and they have 2 f30 models on the floor - a 328 msport xdrive in EB with a bunch of bmw performance parts (larger wheels, that stripe down the car) and black interior and a 328 sport xdrive (18") Sapphire with Coral interior.

The aluminum trim in the sport felt like real aluminum while the hex in the msport looked and felt like plastic with an "image" of hexagons on the trim. Very odd. I was looking at getting an msport in white as I like the front but I was a bit disappointed about the hex trim. The red interior also looked more upscale especially by the door inserts. I can live with that difference more so than the fake looking hex aluminum trim.
