Nice! Tried wrapping this myself on the F10 but some of the pieces were difficult especially on the highly curved areas (plenty of those on the center piece). And there's the aluminum trim on the door pieces which u must cut. Gave up in the end, too much work. Looks like Don is quite the expert on wrapping so do post pics when you get done ... excited to see what the final result.

Just need one of those plastic pry tools. Comes off pretty easily once u figure out where all the catches are. There's only 1 screw for the center console piece. Then again, that's for the F10. Not sure if the X5 is similar in how the pieces are fastened to the dash/door. Good luck!!

Trim sold

Holy resurrected thread, Batman! How'd this thing come bubbling back up after 18 months?

Sorry, the trim was sold many months ago.

If you are interested in trading for anthracite so you can try to sell mine (maybe easier to?) PM me.
I have the dark wood in mine, and my wife wants the Anthracite...want to trade?
