What you experienced was likely just car to car variation. They can also be built at both the SA and Germany plants, some debate the quality of each plant.

Hex is real metal, I had it off the car and you can see it and feel it clearly. It is also much cooler to the touch than the rest of the plastic.
Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.
I hope that is only car to car and build location subtle differences.

Hex felt good to touch on F30 but I think it looks too busy the way that design is adapted in it current form. Personal preference of course. I faintly remember how clean the Al hexagon trim was on the E90s, which I might be confusing with something aftermarket. That is an old story though.

Got a 335i M-Sport with hex and blue line, the car is SOLID, no cracking the the trim is perfect.

If u decide to get M-Sport with coral red interior then get silver or blk as exterior color with black trim, as the blue strip may be too much of a mix

Btw, my car was build in Germany - Euro delivery
Thanks! That is a bit reassuring.

I plan to go with the chrome accent, with Anthracite trim, the Aluminum Hexagon Trim does not look that great IMHO (also personal opinion). Thankfully I can get that with CR interior leather. I plan to order my car to be build in Germany too, fingers crossed on which animal's leather I get.

2014 335i MSport Mineral Gray Metallic, Coral Red, Premium/Cold Weather/Dynamic Handling. 19" 403M wheels, Sport Auto, Delivery: 10/18

2011 328i Sedan. Deep Sea Blue/Oyster. Gone but not forgotten.
