All Interior trim needed....where???

*EDIT* The deal fell through on the 528i so we bought a 325is instead. Thanks for all the replys.


I just bought my son a 1998 528i w/sport package and the trim pieces (assuming they were wood grain) are all gone including the shifter knob.
I have searched on here for quite some time and there are tons of interior trim threads but who knows the best place to get replacement.....I don't think he wants to go with wood, leaning towards silver or black...the car has tan interior.


Also the radio is gone but the EQ? part is still there. Better to go with aftermarket or find used oem radio?

Thanks for any and all help in advance...I will probably be asking more questions as I am new to Beemers.

You can buy brand new trim and wrap it. Craigslist and eBay has pices if you look hard enough. Someone local to me has all the wood trim pieces for sale plus the shift knob for around $250.

What is the price range you will find on ebay or CL?

I saw several posts about wrapping it...he really liked the carbon fiber look.

For the real carbon fiber it will cost like $700. I only know of one or two places skilled enough to do it. I plan on doing it soon to my car. As for fake carbon fiber, it'll probably be under $200. But won't last as it'll only be a sticker. Your other option is to remove it all and paint it.

I meant the fake carbon wrap stuff. Right now we don't have the trim pieces so we need that before we can do any painting or anything else.
