ENTRANCE COVER: M or basic?

I would like to add entrance covers, but dont know which one to choose, M-style or basic?

Seems like M-style are more scratch resistant, as they have aluminium finish.

What do you think?

The M-Sport sills looks great, but you could either get it in conjunction with the m-sport package or buying it separatly in eBay.

O dont have x-line or m-package, so I dont have any sills at all...
But I doubt that m-sills will look ridiculous without exterior m-package...

If you don't get the x-trim or the m-sport, you still get that BMW door sill. It still looks great than without one -,^

I looked in ebay and elsewhere, I can't seem to find the part and part number for those door sill. Does anyone has the part numbers for the bmw and M sill? Also is it hard to install?
