Hi Guys

This is my first posting so try not to rip me to shreds just yet.

A simple question, my car (UK 2002 M3 SMG, Grey Leather) currently has a wood interior and I'd like to replace it with either some nice carbon fibre (and not the tacky looking type) or somthing like the Titanium or Aluminium that came as standard. I've looked for ages but so far have found only one site and that sells the dodgy cheap looking stuff. Anyone know of any good sites?

Cheers.

Find someone who wants to swap trim with you otherwise you're going to have to get the real stuff straight from BMW and that costs alot of $$$.:eeps:

I swapped that horrible Titan shadow creaky stuff with the Aluminium trim. One of the best upgrades I did. I purchased it directly from BMW ... was quite pricey though !!

you just replaced the door pulls with the aluminum? how does it look with the rest? my door pulls have crinkled up horribly and look like sh*t.

No ... I did the lot. All the door handles (front and rear), the 3 trim pieces for the dash and then the trim by the gear stick.

just called bmw of N. scottsdale, explained to them my problem regarding my titan shadow around the door and the head service tech tried to explained the cracked door drim was due to the fact maybe a ring on my finger could have been the problem.

"Sir I dont wear rings."

him "Maybe it is some other problem we are not aware of this"

they quoted me $120. per side and 250 labor. I am not happy regarding the cost of this and how cheap this part is. I kept my cool the whole time and I am very professional on the phone and explained that several other owners of the titan shadow trim are disapointed also.

Hell the other 2 m3's I looked at to buy had cracked door handles as well.


any suggestion on this issue?

This what I payed for them about a year ago. I sold the my old Titan Shadow trim on E46fanatics I think. Got around $300 ish for it, so this will off sets the price of the Aluminium trim. I was a little bit unshore of doing this as I was worried that taking all the panels off would cause new rattles, but actually everything is better than before .. and no rattles, sweaks to report !! You can do it yourself (if you have the time/patience), or get the dealer to do it. I did all the dashboard and shifter trim myself, but left the dealer to do the handles .... Good Luck !
