    Last time visiting BMW dealer I have noticed they offer to sell trims in body color (not just black as I see all around). It surprised me when it is offered no one is having it. I am talking about painted:

    wheel arches trims
    side skirts trim
    front bumper trim
    rear bumper trim

    I would like to see the same on dark gray Mini (any pictures around?) and also opinion why is this not popular?

    thanks a lot!

    Didn't know that was offered. I like color coded arches on a case by case basis, but it can look VERY good.

    WOW that does look really good on your car in that color. :Thumbsup:

    I did think about painting my R53 trim long ago but I have a Chili Red w/ Black roof and since I blacked everything out I like how the Black trim "Frames" my Silver rims.

    This sounds like a dealer option. I agree, it is a nice mod, thought about doing the same.

    I don't think the blue MINI was the OP's, he asks about dark grey color in the post.

    Not sure how a grey color would look.....

    Looks nice and is almost like having an aero kit effect without the big expense.:Thumbsup: Maybe that's why the dealers do not push it.:nonod:
