Can ceramic controls be after-fitted?

Does anyone know if ceramic controls can be installed after delivery? I wish I'd ordered them at the time I placed my order, but I didn't.

I ordered them and love the look and feel, although i wouldn't spend a dollar to retrofit them. Not worth the hassle

After reading the post on the 5-series board, t looks like I'll be going with the standard controls. Ridiculously expensive, and computer malfunction codes? No thanks...

Do you know anyone that has had custom ceramic controls made in place of other aluminum trims, ie gear selector, ashtray and cupholder, etc?

I agree 100%, especially after everything those people have to go through to have the computer to recognize the ceramic controls. Who would've thought that actually makes a difference in the computer system?
