Talking help changing out gold trim

help please

still trying to buy my first e36. i'm looking at a 96 328is. someone put gold trim (to each his own) on it which i'd want to change back to original silver (around front grill, 328is moniker, and ring around trunk key). question for y'all is where can i get the trim replacements for a reasonable cost?

also this has sports seats which are great, but i also like wood trim which it doesn't have. any idea where to get wood trim for the center console, e-brake, shift knob, and glove box?

is this stuff sold new or do i have to find used? i've looked at the parts stores listed on the site, but can't find this stuff. rough idea of the total cost if anyone has bought this stuff?

also i imagine it's all easy DIY, yes???

thanks in advance!!!

Like Cruisin' said, Ebay for the exterior pieces. www.autoanything.com advertises wood-trim dash kits for the 3 series.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.

Also, I believe that bavauto.com has the wood shiftknob and e-brake handle.
