Sorry I don't get your point. BMW offer it on the M135i because it doesn't look like a 1M. But the 228i and M235i look similar to the 1m but you can only get it on the 228i

As much as I like an orange car I don't think I would want to drive one every day.

Everyone has personal taste, but I'm having hard time trying to understand why people want "Plastic" black trims instead of "Metal" chrome.

I once thought this was some kind of BMW's internet marketing scheme, trying to push out more of cheap plastic trim by making artificial demand to make more money...

Chrome is old school and shadow line trim looks more modern.

The base car without M Sport package looks terrible IMO, as do the grille, halogen lights and wheels. Also, the miniscule screen that they put if you don't opt for navigation looks terrible with that huge bezel. Ugh!

It's not that I prefer black to chrome, but I prefer a more unified look. The M235i has 4 different kinds of trim, black near windows, chrome on grille, brushed or whatever mirrors and rims a fourth color. Just think it's a LOT going on. To clean it up going all black is the easiest option.

Seriously it's not plastic at all.

It's a sport line, so not base 228. But yeah, I'm not digging it either.
