Iv got a 03 325i with a wood interior finish. Iv decided I want to swap it with the aluminum panels but I have some ?s. First off how much could this cost me, is the job difficult enough that I should have BMW do it or can I do it myself, and lastly can I order online somewhere or have BMW order parts for me?

I just ordered a 2005 330Ci ZHP and am not sure that I like the black cube aluminum trim. Changing this trim is not an option on the performance package so I might be considering getting the regular brushed aluminum trim to replace it.

I would like to know where it can be ordered and the approximate cost for purchase and possible installation. Thank you to any that can help.

I have a the aluminum trim and inquired what it would cost for the wood trim at my stealership. I was quoated around $800 for the dash/door trim and the shifter trim. They also told me it there are seven clips that I would need at $2.50 each. At those prices, I think I'll either trade with someone or get it off a salvaged 325 and install it myself.

sedan trim (matte chrome) is around $200-250 for 8 pieces (4 door, shifter, light panel, center dash, pass dash.

coupe trims (matte chrome) is around $400-450 for 8 pieces (2 door, 2 rear armrests, light panel, center dash, pass dash.

you do not need the clips since you already have them currently in your vehicle. they are usable.

sedans are VERY easy to change. it should take you no more than 30 mins.

coupes takes more, dash and center pieces are easy like sedans, door pieces requires door panel removal. rear armrests are even more difficult which requires you to remove rear panels.
