Interior Trim Removal

Has anyone tried to remove the interior trim yet? Just took delivery yesterday and I need to cover up the ghastly aluminum tetragon trim as soon as possible.

Did you end up changing the trim?

Anyone have a DIY on this? There are trims for the g20 on ebay for around 600-700$.

Is there any way we can retrofit ambient lighting too?

I've played with it a little using the parts views from RealOEM as a guide but it's on there pretty tightly. I'm hesitant to apply too much force without knowing more about it. Some of the eBay vendors are making CF overlays for the G30 so I hope they will soon for the G20

I would love to know how to take out the trim on the left hand side of the driver instrument cluster. That black gloss plastic could use some PPF.

bump. I want to replace my aluminum tetragon with open pore wood. I can find the parts online. Is this something the dealership would be willing to do?

I just received an overlay set of carbon fiber that I purchased for the center console, passenger trim piece and shifter, it looks really good, I'm gonna try to install it tomorrow during or after work I'll post pics after the install

Is it the set from AliExpress? I'm interested in the quality since I haven't purchased from them before.

No it's not the abs carbon fiber look from Allie, it's real carbon fiber

I was super dissatisfied with the Matte Wood Trim on my M340Xi I purchased.

I drove a 2019 X5 a year ago that had this beautiful matte colored grey trim and I ordered that EXACT material. Let me say it looks like absolute shit. They used a much much lower grade material in my car and the texture is very weak as well as the grain is terrible.

BMW whoever made that decision screwed up bigtime going cheap on the materials vs last years X5's

I might wait and try to buy actual CF pieces the wraps just don't look real
