    Just wondering if the piano black trims were an option on cabriolets? as I have only seen wood, silver and carbon which I have, and to me looks tacky.

    The dash and piece round the ash tray and auto lever I would guess will be the same as a saloon or avant but being only 2 door the door pieces will be different.

    Any one got any picks of the piano black trims fitted?

    cheers

    The Ashtray and gear surrounds are the same as the saloon, Avant & Cab.

    Gear surrounds are different between Manual and Autos.

    Ashtray is different between Single din and Double Din.

    The bit above the glove box and the light switch is Cab only!

    Yep that is what I was thinking of, but never have seen it... but really depends if finish is like the trim which is in new shape BMW E60 M5's. I had anthracite wood finish in my old M5 and loved it... the carbon looks rather Max Power to me.

    It doesn't have to have Nav but as long as it's has a double din stereo (i.e Symphony II) then it will be fine.

    As for the trims on e-bay they do tend to go very quickly so you have to check everyday.

    I've got the RS4 carbon trim in my cab which is a different finish to the S4 carbon trim I believe. Its the deepest and best carbon I've ever come across and love it to bits. I think it goes well with my dark red leather and ebony black car.
    Picked it up for a bargain price, no where near the £1400 price to order all the bits brand new. I've got the complete pack including the rear door card trims too.

    Wouldn't part with it for the world !!!

    Right hand drive RS4 cabrio trim NEVER ever comes up on Ebay either !!!!
