Default Bought a 530d Highline! Can't wait!

I finally got a BMW 530d Highline. It's Monaco Blue on the outside and Black on the inside. I think the car is ready now and I will be taking delivery after I get to India in about a week. Thanks to everyone here who helped me make my decision, especially Sahil. I'll post pics after I get the car.
Does anyone know the price to change the interior trim to those trims that are offered as accessories? I really hate the wood trim that comes with the car and I want to change it to brushed aluminum or high gloss black. I don't even know if they are offered in India.

Congrats dude!
the 530d sure is a great piece of machinery!
Can't wait for the pics.
btw, I don't think the trim should be a problem.

cheers

Congrats on your purchase Stranger! The trims can be ordered through your dealer, would cost approx Rs.70,000. Please make sure you confirm with the pattern and color that you need, and that the entire set is available.

Regards,
Mav!

Wonderful car. Congrats Stranger. I have read somewhere that the acceleration of the car is something to be experienced.
