Aluminum Trim for a '99 540

Is it possible to change the wood trim to aluminum in a '99 540 ? If so where can it be purchased ?

Yes, the trims are fairly simple to remove, the dash trims (except for the CD door) are all friction fitted, pry them out with a flat screw driver.

Aluminum trims are rare, there are other trims in silver, black, olive,...those are more common. I believe Crevier BMW can order them from Germany for you, not cheap, around $800 for a set including the shift console.

Is the aluminum trim a factory part or an after market item ?

I believe the brushed aluminum trims are not regular option, they are options from BMW Individual, only available in Europe.
