Which trim?

The Exterior paint color is Carbon Black Metallic. There's Anthracite, Aluminum Hexagon, and Aluminum.

Funny!

Coming from someone who has the black leather and Aluminium Hexagon option (mine is lighter than yours judging by pics), you need something lighter to brighten up the interior. Especially if you're going for sun protection glass. It's pretty dark in there! So in your case here I'd go for the lightest option possible.

Go for Aluminium, and polished yes, I have black leather hence I went for the Alum for some brightness in the cabin. the contrast works wonders in my opinion.

It's brushed as seen in this pic. I like that better than the Hexagon.

Hexagon.

Anthracite looks awesome too but if you are anal like me about fingerprints, dust and fine scratches then i would avoid it for sure.
