Interior Trim Swap Foward

Thought maybe I would start a little swap train here...

I just replaced my wrapped interior trim with used BMW OEM carbon fiber trim.
I got it for $800 (its like new), new trim is around $2600, I think I got a good deal. I liked my wrapped trim but the OEM does look much much better if you ask me. I was pleased with the wrap, it looked great but when I saw the OEM trim I wanted it...

In any case, I now have my old trim sitting in a box, some of it is still wrapped, some I pulled the wrap off. If somebody wants it (so they can wrap it for what they want) all they have to do is pay for shipping..... as long as they pass there old trim off to somebody who wants to do the same thing.

Maybe this will help people to do this mod if they now don't have to tear there dash apart, and they can take there time.... makes it a bunch easier I would imagine...

We can make this a revolving post every time someones ready to do it...

Let me know...

Damn! I am about to do a Satellite Navigation retrofit on my 6 & needed the trim for the centre of the dash in Birke Grau (Dark Wood).
My car does not have Sat Nav so it only has the CD drive, the trim I need is the one with the slot for CD & DVD.

Have a look on eBay. I've seen a number of them there at reasonable cost.

Hey bud. My trim is dark gray wood. Once I get it off, it's yours for shipping price if you want it.
