I hate the wood trim in the car...anyone either paint the woodtrim titanium or get the OEM aluminum trim and replace it?

If you got the OEM aluminum trim is it hard to replace and is it expensivE?

I don't know if painting the wood trim is a good idea, but I guess you could. I'm changing my wood trim to titanium, but it's for a 5 series. The following should give you an idea of the cost if you went the OEM route via the dealer...

The interior pieces are as follows:
1. Dash left of steering wheel 51-45-2-695-581 $27.80
2. Dash right of steering wheel 51-45-2-695-583 $27.80
3. Center of dash radio door 51-45-2-695-589 $32.00
4. Right of dash over glovebox 51-45-2-695-588 $47.52
5. Front door trim left/right 51-41-2-695-577/578 $52.00 each
6. Rear door trim left/right 51-42-2-695-579/580 $52.00 each
7. Center console piece 51-16-2-695-566 $376.82
8. Shift knob 25-11-7-892-571 $72.40
9. Labor to change interior trim approx. $400.00
Total parts cost $792.34
Total parts and labor to change interior trim -- approximately $1192.34

Again, this is for a 5 series.

Ebay always has kits, but beware, some kits are crappy and may leave an uneven gap in some places.
