my understanding is that those who order brushed alloy (and I was going to myself before opting for piano black) will get a car that has B.A on the dash, but this is complemented with fluid silver door trims rather than B.A door trims, which do not exist.....so you only get alloy on the dash...you expecting this, I trust
Yeah, at first I thought it was B.A. everywhere, the dealer then pointed out that the doors are grey mat, I thought 'here we go again'.
But if you check out Paul's link further up this page you can see that the rings on the doors are "Grey Silver" and only the door handles are B.A.
(Probably just as well too, since a friend of mine with a BMW X3 has aluminium on the door trim, when he leaves his car for a few hours in the sun -plenty of that here- you can actually get burned if you touch the aluminium surface by mistake!!)
