Yes there is. There is Titanium and Aluminum. The Titanium is standard on the 3's and the Aluminum is optional. It's something like $500 CAD extra. It shows the two in the 3 series coupe catalog. Also check the BMW.ca website. If you go to uild your BMW then you will see under the packages options section you can select Aluminum for one of the trims.

basically, the rest of the world uses those terms i think. Americans need to feel they're special so BMW USA renamed the trims in the US. :lmao:

I'm a 30 year old university graduate and a partner in a U.S. business that has relied heavily on a pubisher/printer in Canadia for the last 6 years. I've got a university degree.....I know how to spell Canadia. :confused:

You Canadians are so serious. :lmao: The spelling of "Canadia" is a running joke that I picked up over on AudiWorld. It's a play on the stereotype that Americans know/care nothing of other countries, even those that share borders. It was supposed to be funny. :lmao:

How come my car doesnt have the aluminium trim on the door handles?:confused: :dunno: :confused:
Sedans are different. The coupe has alum/wood armrests and the sedan just has little strips of alum/wood above the armrests.
