Mein Auto: higher mile m3
cheap side armrest? paint looks = crap

I have a 2002 bmw m3 vert and it is mint, when I bought it (used) the thing was in mint but the arm rests look like ****. the other e46 coupes I look at, all have the same issue. I have black leather with the gun metal/grey color (around the shift knob and the strip across the dashboard)

Why do all the plastic pieces on the arm rest look so cheap and worn down? I have heard BMW has admitted to this and maybe do something about it?

anyone know where I can buy them besides the parts department

O yea I went to chapman bmw in scottsdale, AZ and was in fear for that place..total joke of a parts/service area

I just didnt have time to make it to N. Scottsdale
