Retrofit sunblinds to an X5

Hi Guys,

Does anybody know if you can retrofit the OEM sun blinds to an E70? If I have one X5 next to another, could I swap the parts over? They both will have the same interior (Black leather with aluminium trim). DOes anybody know if it is firstly possible and secondly is it a big job?

thanks in advance

I have seen this done on E60's in the past. In order for you to retrofit them, you will need to purchase new rear door panels which are made for the Rear shades, the rear shade along with the window trim for the clips to hold up the shades. I am not come across a thread about doing this on a E70 but would assume it was the same.

Surely I can swap from one X5 to another? So won't need to buy anything.

My bad, I didn't read clear enough about swapping interiors. The Swap that I read about was a M5 to a 530 and it was a straight swap.
