Uuuwww. I could not disagree more. Black on Black, would be the hottest(temperature wise)inside the car, sitting in the sun. Although I have a black BMW, it is the metallic with the tan also. But I did not have a choice, buying the car used. Wood trim is for old Rolls Royces and Jaguar's only. Dark colors look better with with chrome trim. Light colors look best with flat black trim. All opinion, but contrast is what makes it. My buddy has wooden trim on a 330cic, the dark wood trim, if it is real wood. Unimpressive and misplaced to some. Aluminum or Titanium in a sports car.

You're entitled to your opinion, of course, but I think wood looks very much at home in a 3 series. Our older E46 325xi had Oxford green exterior, black trim, and on the inside had the Natural Brown leather with wood trim.

It's a tasteful AMOUNT of wood, not like the forest they cut down for a Rolls or the treatment they give Mercedes wood to make it look like plastic (how DO they do that? )
Sure black on black is not practical (or very smart) for hot climates but like that little black dress and pearls, you can't go wrong. It's classic.

Oh I agree. Black/black is a timeless look, just a royal pain in a certain anatomical area to maintain and keep looking nice.
I personally love the green/brown/wood look. My current vehicle has a dark (almost black wood) on it (yes it's real) with black/grey interior. Looks nice and stays cleaner a lot longer, but the exterior is lighter colored.
